The movement and light is really nice, reminds me of the inside of a seashell a little. Very peaceful, thank you.

To me this has a mysterious and ethereal quality to it. A wonderful personal touch...:thumbsup:

I love your palette choice, very appropriate.
The interesting thing to me is not so much the trees but the wonderful color field to the left. This subtlety in color shifting is very successful! It looks as if it has a hint of some architectural form, like the facing of a doorway or interior of a home. Is this assumption correct? or is it strictly non-representational?

Great minimalist concept IMO.
But I'd dispense with the rectangles on the upper left as I think they pull the eye away from the trees.

It is very peaceful and very gentle. I like this La and it is in your signature style. I guess the chaos makes us appreciate the peace when it comes. Keep having fun.......Lenore

I'm interested in the columns in the upper left corner. They remind me a door frame and door. It's rather surreal in it's concept. I'd be pleased to know what these objects are. KYRed

Thanks much for your thoughts all,

i considered wiping out the buildings on the left but didn't want the complete starkness of just trees on the horizon so i left the structure in and the theme became city vs country, of sorts.

The trees are the dominantly noticable aspect because i do prefer 'country' over 'city', but i needed to keep the 'city' ever looming over them, and them, ever supportive no matter the grandeur of loom from said city

if i were to psycho babble it, i would 'blame' it all on a pending subdivision in my front yard.

thanks again, your thoughts were most helpful

I think the buidlings on the left are necessary for this piece, and I especially like the way they dwarf the trees. But somehow the trees stand tall (figuratively).

good one La, really, really, like it.

La, I keep coming back and looking at this. It is mesmerizing and my first impression never changes: The Walls of Babylon.
