Nah, it's Italy. I'm just teasing you. It's lovely.

Norma, will we get to see?
Happy to say "hello". C and C always welcome.

Here it is. Approximately 4 x 6 on pastelmat. Had a devil of a time with the rocks! Sorry about the poor image. I get better images when I scan, but the scanner is not working properly.

Nice rocks, very strong light on them. Love the autumn colors and you have a good strong pattern of light and dark there. Well done!

Nice! I like the shape and color of your tree Norma, good contrast against the background and as Robert says your light is well defined!
I really enjoyed this month in the "Spotlight" as well😄, appreciate all the helpful tips and encouragement from everyone! And a special Thank You to Don for hosting! 👍
