ACEO cards, My beige home, Patio with fountain behind it, Pelican where I feed the Squirrels

I always wanted and painted a yellow house/cottage. . with water. . .and a pups. I don't know if the Beige Apt. I moved to from FL to Tulsa would count as yellow, however, I do have a Patio wherein the Fountain is behind the Pelican planter. I used mostly Prismacolor pencils and Pens trying to portray my dream. I'm close.
ACEO cards that I couldn't part with because they are part of my 'dream.'

Thank you Kristin and Eva for Artists who love to draw/paint to have a place to go and to those who review and encourage us. Thank you Paint Party Friday.
 Twilight my new place.
 Since we have 'winter' I have Pistachios and Bird food.
 OK, little Beggar.
 The patio and the Pelican planter.
 The fountain can be seen behind the Pelican 
and to the Right. This is my Patio.
 Squirrel on the Patio post.
 Backyard and over the fence . . I get to pet this beautiful creature.

Boat in Water with Rainbow overhead

 Rainbow over Boat in the Water. .Birds and Trees. .Sand. I used Pastels and Prismacolor Pencils. You can see what I miss.  Thank you Eva and Kristin for Paint Party Friday where we all have a chance to share our Art and share our passion. The most interesting part of PPF is the wonderful mixture of art and talent. Plus we find out about new art products on the market and how to use them.
EDIT:  I didn't realize that I added the Palm (where I used to live) and then a regular Tree (where I now live). Hummmm!

Thank you so much for your comments, suggestions and best wishes. I appreciate each and every one of you.
 The moon in the trees last night. . . 78 percent full.
 Squirrel 'on the fence' in the backyard.
 Burying nuts for winter, however, this one decided to have Breakfast.
 Pasture is just over the fence.
 Did you get a good picture. . .
Trees with a 'few' reds but mostly Gold this fall.
 Fantastic sunset last evening.
The most violent storms leave the brightest and longest rainbows. Keep the Faith. Hang in there. The clouds will pass.  Sometimes when things are falling apart they may actually be falling into Place.  ~ Terry Alex
