Rita...thank you for looking.

Ginia....That is what I was wanting to capture...something soothing and hypnotic like cicadas singing in the trees during the afternoon.

Hi Fagan .. wow . the entrance to this new version just sings a 4 part harmony .. I'd still like to see those far green reflections grey green instead of green as it will really add more distance and atmosphere to an already great work.

:D

I love the foreground in its crispness (crispyness?), and the background in its softness. The only thing that bugs me is I don't feel that there's enough a transition from one to the other in the middleground. Not sure how I would go about changing that if it were mine, though......
And I really like that pink next to the green. That 's got to be one of my favorite color combinations, though I don't seem to be able to pull it off that well. You've done it much better. :cool:

Yep, crispyness sounds MORE fun.....it looked very crisp to me as well.....

and Aurora, the pink/green combo is my fave too------:D

well done Bev!

Wayne....thanks for the suggestions!

Aurora...thank you for commenting...I wanted an abrupt change from dark to light....does it look bad?

artbabe...thank you. *SMILE*

Bad? Oh gosh no. Never bad. I hope you don't think that's what I meant. I really like this painting, actually. I've just kind of been a dolt at self expression lately. Sorry.

Aurora...oh no! that is not what I meant either..*LOL* I was wondering if it looked bad...I was asking in general. I have trouble expressing myself a lot!

Aurora...maybe we can use sign language...*GRIN* I may be off kilter on this painting. But I really wanted a very drastic change from light to dark. I have sat many a time (in Oklahoma especially) in the deep shade of a tree looking out on a very sunlit landscape...that is what I was going for.
