Thanks for the compliments everyone! It's good to be here. I don't paint very main choice of medium is drawing with pencil, but I thought I would try this. I actually painted it with acryllic craft paint that you get in the 2 oz jars. I have another painting I did, so will send that too as soon as I get a pic of it. Thanks again!

Really nice, makes me want to walk right in and start exploring! I love how you achieved the overall tone and no really sharp contrasts--everything just flows so well colorwise. Glad you found us, and will look forward to seeing more. Luvs
