Subject to Interpretation

Here's my submission to my group's new winter project: "Subject to Interpretations". I disliked my first stab at painting from the photo and this 2nd time I cropped tightly and zoomed in to put a clump of grass front and center. It is the grasses that I liked best about the photo--so why not make the grasses the star?

This has a rather hallucinatory Redon-ish quality.

I LOVE this. Your colors choices make the water pop and is the perfect for highlighting that clump of grass. Bravo for redoing this until you were happy with the image because we are crazy about it now.

Beautiful. I love the colors and it seems to me like looking at a wonderfully colorful landscape through the sift diffusion of a frosted glass. Lovely textures and color.
good of you to focus on the best part of the scene. It works for me.
