Very nice! I like the old timey fairy tale look. Is this for a children's story?

How odd though, this just popped-up! Your time says 3:59 but it's 1:06 in CA. Are you still on East Coast time?

Nope... perhaps Blogger is on the East Coast...

Very nice! This image is so whimsical and Fun. I wand to get on board. :) It was so nice to see you last weekend and I am happy for you and your new job. Lets talk again when you get settled after awhile in Seattle.

Most excellent! Agree with all the other comments - have one quibble though. The flying creature in the upper left doesn't feel right to me. It just looks like a space filler. Something desgined to fill a neg space, but nothing that will compete w/ the dominant train for attention (& quite rightly so)... If it was attacking maybe it'd have purpose, but I'm not sure you need it at all. Sky effects would be enough maybe? I do like the fish skel weather vane and roof tops, etc. This is a really good piece!

As always "free advice and worth every penny" Dok

I think you are probably right about the flying creature... he's not very functional or attractive.

I always welcome your advice! Keep it coming!
