Roof Top King

A sketch from a clear morning view in Eastport
last summer--
it sure surprised me to find out
this is the same house
I had painted from a down low
angle---it looked so different
to me from up above. In the Bay
below the car ferry goes
several times a day to a
nearby island I have yet
to experience---maybe
next summer.

I am really enjoying getting to know Winna's World. You make the Moleskine sketchbook pages look so easy to use! Maybe I should get mine back down off the shelf and try again.

I don't think the ivory color of the Moleskine page is so intimidating as glaring daring white--and the smaller size says, "Come on, you've got the time to spend with me.." EJ, Winna or Jill, take your pick...

Believe it or not---I just this am noticed the gull in the sketch was really too big for that chimney---that's how long it takes sometimes...this calls for a story, about "Edwina and The Giant Gull" :-)

That crown is perfect! And the bit of paper with explanation adds to it too. You did a great job again.

I'll have to try those whoopie pies sometime. I think my grandkids would love them.

This SOOOO made me laugh, as a fellow NE shorline person I do know how dominating those gulls can be - Gorgeous sketch and the house was quite a challenge in perspective, Bravo!

This is just wonderful...I love the perspective. You're right about the rooftops, too...

Another stunning page, Jill. I am so happy to be allowed these glimpses into "Winna's World!"
