I saw a very nice photograph on The Depp Effect which caught my eye, because, as usual, it is part of an English Village scene. I say as usual, because I visit a lot of English blogs just because of their village and countryside scenes. Although I love where I live now, I miss the English countryside and you can't have our weather and English scenery.

The scan has brought out the ink lines too much, but I don't want to fiddle with it because then if I do it doesn't feel like my painting any more. It is 5 x 7" water color on Bristol card. I substituted a girl with a shopping bag, for the "girl with the brolly", replaced the Butcher's Shop sign and put in the dog which should have been a greyhound if I thought enough about it . To know why visit The Depp Effect.
This piece was fun to do. Now I have two more to do as well as catch up with a lot of visiting and leaving comments. Either everybody decided this was a good weekend to blog or the Dashboard is having a hard time keeping up with the new blogs. I'm sure there weren't as many new blogs posted when I looked yesterday.
In addition to my helping out at the shelter, I am now cat-sitting my son's two cats for a couple of weeks. That means driving 20 minutes there and back every couple of days. But I really don't mind because Josie gives me long naps and loud purrs on my lap.
This is Josie.
I have no idea where Cleo is. In the many years I have looked after these two cats, I have never seen Cleo. She hides and I have given up trying to find her.
