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

  1. It has a nice, familiar feel to it, maybe because it reminds me of some of the architecture around here. I like it.

  2. Very nice! Manx men come from the Isle of Man too. And Manx women, I suppose.

  3. Doug---There are a lot of buildings like this one there. Usually with a chimney on each end. Glad you like it.

    Debra---And in both cases...no tails!
