Thanks, Mikey. I thought I had to keep the image under 100kbs. Then I noticed the painting of the eyes and how large it is. What is the size limit I can upload?
On the far right, it was intended to be distant mass of land, but it does look more like the ocean swell, doesn't it? I could put a tiny, soft, lighthouse on the far hill.
Yes, I agree I should soften the horizon.
Do you think I need any close-up birds, either on the rocks or something more detailed, on the beach, at the water's edge? (Sometimes, I just don't when to quit.)
Ok, it worked!!
I think maybe a very small boat to the far left of center, on the horizon, would be enough. (and do close-up birds another time?)

Any suggestions for a "great title"???

Thanks for writing.
