15 X 12 in. Cradled panel w. canvas skin.

Again I must apologize for the quality of the photo. The background greens are not nearly so bright in the background, but the rest of the colors and values a reasonably accurate.

I really like this. The shadows and light are great and the fuzzy texture of the seed pods(?) is perfect. Well done, Cliff!

Thank you Cindy. Those are goldenrod flowers taken after a really hard frost.

Aw, it's sad and beautiful at the same time. I like it a lot... I am also 'waiting for spring' here in Chicago.

:clap::clap::clap: ... and I like the greens that show on my monitor - very dark with just a hint of lighter viridian type green in places (and still very subdued).

Very pretty, Cliff. I like the fuzzy look on the plant, (golden rod). The contrasts are very nice and strong.
