Geez, where does the time go? I was gone for a few days. Life in a suitcase...
I'm really happy with how this is coming along! I have to finish the sidewalk/steps, put in the tree and shrubbery, and then do a little something with the background. In real life this cottage is surrounded by trees. I am not planning to put all those trees in the background. I LIKE this clean composition, I really don't want to clutter it up with a bunch of stuff behind it. Unless I get to that point and think it needs it... but I don't think that'll happen. That's not the plan. But I'll do a little something to get the border to "pop." Just you wait and see.

I did this a thank-you for someone who recently gave me a lot of scrimshaw supplies. He and his wife have a small and much-loved flock of Sebright bantams, and when I was deciding what to do for them I thought "yay finally a chance to scrimshaw some chickens!!!" :-)
