This is very nice, Linda. You've done a good job on this!

Beautiful painting. Thanks for posting it. If I may ask, what sorts of wood panels are you using? And are there any that you've tried that are especially good (or not so good)?

Kind of you Georgi.
I use furniture grade panels, had cut and sanded by a master cabinet maker locally. My favorites are Birch and Maple. They are 5/8 inch thick.

Wonderful capture of light and shadow.

Beautiful! The palm tree seems almost out of place - but I'm sure it was there! It kind of acts as that element of surprise. Beautiful, subtle colors, really nice!

The palm is a balance for the heaviness on the right side of the painting. The two other palms in the distance tie it to them. An asymmetrical balance plan if you will. I wanted to bring an interval further down into the painting, breaking up the field and adding interest to the left side,as well as adding depth in the atmosphere.

Very nice work - love the "Fine Art" look - wonderful!

You did a stunning piece, I too love the moss and the feel of your composition.
Very relaxing and rather romantic in it's softness. Wonderfully done!

Ruth and Lavender,
I appreciate your kind feedback so much.

Skillful execution of aerial perspective in the distant trees...it gives a nice dichotomy of near & far. Thanks for sharing Linda.

Patrick, Very kind of you. My pleasure indeed.

My kind of winter! Just needs a little more sun, a relaxing chair, and Im there! (summer is a much better time!) well done!

Very nice. Great job on the atmosphere. I love the palm tree, it's like a "greeter", inviting you in and directing you to the clump of trees.

Indeed a master piece.

Just fabulous so realistic as we see it here in FL.. definately a simple palm like that just grows up all by itself, happens so much around here in So Florida, it looks so natural to me!
Love it, excellent works!!

Dear Colleen, Lisa, Eric and Kathie,
Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments. Kathie, Indeed, these palms shoot up often alone in a field with no other vegetation around. They are so lovely aren't they?

Nic looking painting.
12-21-2009, 08:03 PM
Just beautiful - love the whole feeling! Great job on the grass! must have taken a bit of time!

Todd and Cadub,
Thnk you both very much for the kind comments. Acrylics take me much longer than oils do.
12-22-2009, 09:06 PM
Makes me miss my parents - you do Florida very proud!
12-23-2009, 01:32 PM
Your comment means so much to me. I love Florida with a passion and feel very lucky to have been born and raised here. The natives see the wonders that tourists miss.
