QUIET NIGHTS?

In the roof of our house here in Belgium is a lovely attic room which is the guest bedroom and the place where all the grandchildren camp out when they come to stay.

It has two small windows, high in the gable, facing the street, through which the street lights bathe the room in an orange glow and the children cant get to sleep.. Some times their mother drapes cloth over the opening but I decided yesterday to make some shutter panels and paint them with a dark sky and the moon. I used corrugated cardboard (see earlier postings!) and painted a view of the street in oil paint.

Here they are before I fix them. .
