Wow, very nice Randy. It really drives your eye to the focal point. The rocks are well done (as usual), and the diminishing detail and value change in the foliage as it gets closer to the edge of the painting is a nice touch. Beautiful!

Looking beautiful as usual Randy, no surprise here! The touches of pink are working really well, I'll be watching what you do next!

Thanks, everyone. This still needs something but I'm not sure what, yet. If I figure it out I'll post the changes....

Couldn't put my finger on what I really wanted to change so I just adjusted a few values and colors and decided to call it quits. Thanks for looking and commenting!
