Illustration Friday - Welcome

 A welcome pool in the Al Hajar Mountains

I couldn't think of anything for this week's theme apart from doormats and greeting dogs. The former I didn't want to draw and the later I don't think I could. Finally, yesterday I thought of this... the welcome sight of water when you are crossing the hot, dry, and dusty Al Hajar Mountains, Oman. I took reference photos in July '08 and this is the first time I have attempted the subject in any medium. The painting is still on the easel as I may still make minor alterations, but I'm posting now as there are only 2 days left on this theme at IF.
