Asteria, you've been doing a bunch of these country cottage scene paintings lately and they are super! They would make a charming exhibit. I'd love to see a bunch of them together.

Good Morning.
Thank you all , what a nice thing to get up to read all your kind and generouse comments !I appreciate it :)

Jamie I have sort of gotten hooked on the little cottages lately. I really like the old English architecture, well anything old English really.I think I am almost done for a while with the cottages though.

My next project is to go cruising the antique shops with my camera. It should be interesting:)

Your wish is my command LOL Here are a few put togethor in a group

Oh, how very nice. I really am amazed with the detail you've achieved here. Wow, and the subject is so interesting. My mother has a ceramic wall hanging..very old..of a country cottage and I've always admired it.

I really like your work.

Asterea, I like your compositions a lot- Your paths lead the eye into the settings beautifully. Lovely light, color, contrast- The figure in
the lower right painting is outstanding, too. Great series!
