Distant Cloud

I have been painting still lifes on cigar boxes most of this year, thus the lapse in postings.
Here is one of the landscapes I have done on a box. It is 8" x 8" in oil. I glue canvas on the tops of the boxes and often work from my imagination. This is a view from the my studio at Arundell Circle.
