Nice view between the two buildings. It is so bright, it is a bit washed out looking IMHO. I hope it is just the computer.

Hi, Laura. This is lovely! I do agree with Mary that it appears very light - it's probably the photo. My only suggestion would be to perhaps darken the sky a wee bit so there's more definition of the buildings and boat.

Maine is so beautiful - you're lucky to be there! Thanks for sharing this bit with us!

This is a lovely composition Laura... It looks pretty white bright on my monitor though... Could you add a little more definition to your building on the left and your gate in the foreground? Your flowers and foliage are beautifully painted!! I like this!!

nicely done... a tad too much pure white for me (at least on my screen)... and - maybe it's just me - but it seems as if your gate post and gate lean toward the left... if so, this throws me off... if not, my eyes throw me off.

Very nice Laura!! Makes you want to walk on through the gate.

You people who do foliage that great need to come give me some lessons

Love this Laura... so fresh and bright...
