Keeping my hand in

Here is a little painting that I painted from a previous plein air painting. Sometimes, the 2nd (copy) painting doesn't retain the original feel. In this case, I think it is better than the first one. I like how those green trees are bending toward the water.

I like this one too. It seems to have timeless feel. I hope to see it. Can you bring it to Breakfast?

Sweet work, Celeste. I love the colors and the contrasts in this one.

Beautiful effect, and I like the composition very much. The "leaning in" of the trees brings intimacy and interest to the painting.
