MY COMMENTS:
I originally posted this as "Country Love" on this forum a short while back. It started as a watercolor, but is now a combination of water color underneath the oil pastel bar colorings rubbed on top of mainly the sky portion.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I'm surprised and impressed the watercolor paper held up through the changes made. The paper even feels stronger now with the new layers.

I don't have any particular questions, but I wanted to repost in case anyone has any comments or suggestions before I call it "finished" and start something new.

Thank you.

I want to take a big deep breath- the country air in there is almost tangible.
Great sense of space.

Great job in capturing that.

Joni this really turned out exquisite! The painting does have an amazing amount of depth to it, one can smell the dirt and run right down the middle of that field. Wonderful work!

I like the lighting you made in the field to give the field more interest. This makes it come to the foreground more. The shades in the sky are right on. Outstanding

I'll leave it as is then. I didn't really expect only "good" comments. I'm honored tho by them coming from artists such as all of you. Thank you. Joni
