Welcome to the site and to the forum - especially welcome when you bring such treats as this
It looks as if it's catching the late sun - lovely colour and beautifully handled medium.

Thanks! I checked out this months' thread and it's very interesting!!! I guess it's a bit too late to participate this month now, but I'd love to give it a try next month!

Beautiful work. I also checked the link you have and the work there is equally brilliant. Very nice to see and welcome.
