Sinbad’s Fifth Voyage Started

I’m working on a little painting for my daughter’s room, based on a drawing from an 1865 illustration in “Le Magasin pitoresque” of Sinbad’s fifth voyage (a Roc egg being broken open). Here are the first two pictures from it. It’s a lot smaller than I usually work.

    hmmmm makes me wonder what floats around in your head at night. I can’t tell because the pic is so small, but it looks as if the sky is melting into the water on the left side. Lovely art, but post more about your homesteading endeavors :)))

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
