I think the large diversity of different types of vegetation keeps it very interesting to look at and enjoy. I'm curious to see what your larger work looks like.

Lovely painting Steve, a "feel good" painting. Love the warm glow on the grasses and all of the different kinds of trees.

Thanks for your comments Rocky. I looked at some of your work. My favorites were the colorful landscapes. The painting with the butterflies made me think of some of Martin Johnson Heade's painting.

I noticed that we have a couple of things in common. I lived in Memphis for about 15 years and Nashville for 6 years, so I feel like a Tennessean sometimes. I too was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease about 15 years ago. Keep painting!

Steve, nice painting...but
is it supposed to be an abstract or a representational painting?
The shadow in the middle ground bothers me...where is it coming from?
It appears the sun is on the R, if you read the trees in the distance middle ground, so I'm basing my comments from that. So I think if you lighten up the middle ground somewhat, it won't complete with the background.
Then the left purple far background, since it has a splash of yellow/brown color, comes forward a bit...perhaps since purple recedes and the geometry of the shape seems to indicate it's closer, perhaps a deep bluish-green would work better.
