Scott...thank you! I played around in photoshop today and added strong shadow to this painting. I think it looks good and will make adjustments to the original. I had not thought to do a variety of shadow color...will go back to photoshop and try it out. *GRIN*

I can only think of one "criticism" for this piece. The background darks seem to uniform in color (for me anyway). Then again, it could be how the scanner/digital camera read the color. Lord knows I have had that happen to me enough times.
