Backyard view

This is the view from my kitchen window, in my current flat in Bordeaux, France. I drew and painted it this year in April, during a few lazy breakfasts before going to work.
It was then sent as a gift to my friend Megan in Florida. The artworks always run a risk when being lent to postal services ( how many beautifully handcrafted letter have I lost in the past! ) But it you want it to qualify as "postal art" it needs that stamp on it. Thankfully, this one crossed oceans and arrived safe : )

Beautiful work, beautiful view from the window, likely the beautiful neigbour, in a cottage?

OK, never heard of postal art before, so let me get this straight: you drew and painted this on a piece of cardstock or whatever, addressed the back and stuck a stamp on it and mailed it to Florida taking the chance of getting it all bungled up in the mail? That's so scary! But it's really beautiful. Makes me wish I had a window view like that.

What a beautifully quaint view... And so masterfully depicted. It's certainly very different from all of your other artworks on here, I very much like it. Personally, my attention is drawn to the open sky above all the buildings; it gives a feeling of 'something more'... which I love.

Lovely job. And I'm quite jealous of your view.
Oh you are a wonderful artist!
I wouldn't be able to make something like this even if I tried.
