City #7: Esofou (Sue F)

14 x 11", Pen and Gouache on Paper

The city of Esofou mimics the temperament of the day's weather. When it rains, the houses cry with paint dripping down their sides. When it snows, the legs of the houses become frigid and no longer sway with the wind. At night, the houses slowly creep towards the center of the city. During autumn, houses turn beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow, while during the summer, the roofs imitate flames of fire blowing in the wind.
