Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight was the Virtual Paintout area for September. I found lots of interesting subjects, but kept coming back to this one. Obviously, the dog isn't the only one that's tired.

The Isle of Man

The Virtual Paint Out this month is the Isle of Man.

I had a Manx cat once and was told by a vet that they originated on the Isle of Man. The Manx cat has distinctive long hind legs, much like a "wabbit" and a stump for a tail. I looked diligently for one, but alas found no cats, much less any with stumps. So I settled for a  house in the shadows instead.

Hope you like it.

A photo of the actual house can be found on Google Street View here...http://goo.gl/maps/B6U2p

Croatia Shadows House

This month's virtual paint out is in Croatia. I found a lot of high-contrast shadow type scenes. I love 'em. This was one of the better ones.
