WOW! An amazing layered work of colors and patterns; that's inspiring. Thanks for sharing!

Rahina, thank you! "Inviting" ... I love it!

Angela, thanks! The title occurred to me even while I was taking the reference photos ... the lines and shapes of the blankets, pillows and sleeping dogs brought to mind a landscape with rolling hills and mountains.

J, thank you! I just visited your blog ... happy painting and cycling, and poetecizing!
