Okay, I have a LOT to learn about landscapes, but I was pretty happy with how the trees in the background actually look like they are far away.

Not so good on the shadows up front though!! LOL!

Hi Hattie!

It's Michael from the Divine Mercy mission at St. Ann's.

I REALLY like this piece of yours. Have you ever seen Japanese art? Yours would be "too busy" for Zen, but it's still a very fine drawing.

The simplicity is still there and I do like the perspective displayed.

Good luck with it all
Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

I really like how you handled the foreground tree trunk - really, really. And those shadows aren't so bad. What I am liking about your work is that you don't go into super realism - you have already developed your own style and those shadows are fine. I mean, think about it, my friends are telling me how much better I am doing after viewing your paintings! You need to not be so critical of your own work - but then that's what makes us artists, right? The striving for perfection. Wow - keep going!
