I love the soft, warm palette of this one... and I really like how the sky turned out. I actually have a 30 x 40" version of this scene to show you soon; it has a very different feel. Funny how that happens.

Happy Father's Day to my husband who wasn't feeling well today. A snuggly movie afternoon with snacks and the boys on each side of him might have just been what the doctor ordered.

Wonderful painting. So sorry to hear your husband wasn't feeling well. It sounds like his sons had the perfect solution.

Hi Barbara- it ended up being a really good day, although I'm sure john would have liked to have felt a bit better. He really needed the rest though and the kids had fun making a movie theater in the basement.

Sounds like you enjoyed Father's Day too.

XO Nicki
