A Strange Pair


After a short trip on Tuesday I stopped in the drove to sketch the derelict house, a character I've been meaning to sketch for some time. Then later in the evening I spotted a lonesome pear in the fruit bowl and took pity on it.
Two rather solitude subjects, resulting in a very strange pair on my journal page!

Wonderful pair! Was the pear saved from becoming- withard and unused? Grand drawings.

This is an interesting page - there is something lonely about both of these subjects.

I can see why you've been itching to paint that house, I love buildings like that and thought it was just me! Don't call this just a 'sketch' it's a wonderful finished painting! :)

I haven't been commenting recently but I've been amazed at your productivity!! Love the aniseed balls - I've never heard of these.

So it isn't just politics that makes strange "bed fellows"! Lovely as a double page, and as two singles.

It sure was Sherrie...Thankyou!

Casey I thought the same when I painted them, something solitaire about them both. Thank you.

Thank you Jess. I hope to paint it larger at some point and the sheds to the right of it, they are beautifully falling down!

Thanks Felicity, glad to know you are around. :)

LOL...No, not just politics. Thank you!

Margaret, while you are here, you can say whatever you please. :)Thanks!

I think it's past saving now Deni, but I shall love it all the same. Thanks!

Thanks Anetka. Old is far more interesting.
I have to say that....I just turned 40. LOL!
