Thanks to you all, for all your thoughts and replies. I haven't really
been ignoring you, but the result is the same.
I fell in Sept and only a few days ago started (I think) painting again.
I did make a few changes in fore and mid ground, and rather than mt. reflection, added what I hope appear as ripples in the distant and mid ground water.
Joy, I hope I softened that area enough. Is the water better?
Suzie, Welcome, and thanks for your input. You're right, the V right side needed something, but I think this scene has too narrow a scope for V right side sandbar. I think what I've done with the foreground makes up for that side.
Patricia, Thanks! I wonder if you're right about the trees. I may try to shorten the pine. Taking 2 1/4" off would make it even with the Birch tree. I may try for 3/4".
I have a lot of catching up to do, I will try to work on it this week.
Again, thanks. I couldn't have gotten this
far without you.
Have a safe, prosperous, and pleasant 2020!
