In talking about placement... I really like the whole lead in and placement of the tree. Then, the almost white reflected area of the water is just the right balance.

I agree with Page - I want to be part of such a great group.
Another of your beautiful and atmospheric landscapes. I love them.

I've been reading about the elements and principles of art, such as unity, balance, rhythm, harmony, etc. While all were important to creating a good piece of art, ultimately the artist's own vision is the goal. Funny how I never manage what I see in my own head! LOL I still think this is a pretty piece!

Well, if your group didn't give you an A-plus for placement on this beautiful piece, you should come down to participate in the Miami group where placement rules are thrown out the window.

I agree with the others, of course, except I can go further. I am truly convinced that if I am good, very good, that when I die I will go to Portland - except it will be raining less and far less cold - you know, Miami weather.

This painting is really gorgeous, and your placement of the principles is good in my opinion. Love the olive/rust hues.

This has a special quality to it. It has a lovely softness-dream-like.
