HURRY HOME

Remember that feeling when the wind kicked up and the sky turned ominous and you knew you had to hurry home? Even the kitty has his tail fluffed in fear! This is one of my largest paintings. It is an 11" X 14" stretched canvas. I really like the "foreboding" colors on this one. It has a crackle finish with lots of antiquing for a very primitive look.

I hope everyone has had a nice weekend. I enjoyed having my daughter, Tara in town. We always have lots of fun together. Our family went out to eat Friday night and yesterday we paid visits to my parents and my sister Jennifer. In between all that I worked on this painting, finishing it today. I heading over to list it on eBay. Have a great week, everyone!
