Summer


Posted by Hello
I so much wanted to participate in this week's Illustration Friday theme but didn't have any eraser carvings at hand that would work. Yesterday, I unpacked a box and there was this painting!

It's an 8 x 10 acrylic painted in July last year if I remember rightly. There's thunder in the distance and the pigeons are circling the church tower - I'm not real thrilled with the church tower actually.

I think it has a nice late summer feel to it.

I love this painting. I too love the billowy clouds and the detail of the pigeons.
I checked out your blog... what a beautiful house you have!!! I live in the suburbs of Detroit where everything is flat and streets and towns are laid out in grid fashion. There are many nice things about the area I live in but I've always wished for a place like yours!
BTW, your carvings are cool. I've never tried eraser carvings. Do use special tools like lino cutters?
