I moved the Yucca plant (tree??) and added a window and door to the exposed face of the cabin. (Love those tall skinny windows!) I made the Yucca the focal point which then hopefully leads one to the more complicated cabin. I exaggerated the roof lines intentionally to add a bit more drama. I like the way it came out...and I was glad that I decided to get out into the studio and make it a Painting Day, as my Artist Friend Ruth Andre says on her blog ( http://ruthandre.com/blog ). It was a good Sunday all around.
