It's a masterpiece! I love the colors and textures.

I have so much admiration for you for finishing something so ambitious.

Thanks guys!  I haven't been painting long (it's been 4 years now) and this is only my 3rd large watercolor (I've done less than a half-dozen small ones).  My husband says that I've been able to do this because I'm too mule-headed not to do it right.

I already see areas I'd like to "fix" so I'm going to hurry and get it matted/framed before I wind up messing with it and ruining it.  I have an image for my next painting.....I just need to get the gumption to start it.

Wow! You've got to be crazy after working so long on one piece. It was worth it! I know that you're going to pick it apart like any artist would do to their own work, but it turned out amazing! I hope you do well in the competition.

You always have the best stuff!!!  Your people have so much character - and now this!!  A most awesome landscape.  If ever the term "born artist" applied to anyone it would have to be you!!  Great job and good luck in the contest/exhibit - you deserve recognition!

Please forgive my less than elegant response, but wow. Just wow. The attention to detail is wonderful, the colors pop and the scene just looks real. Smiley
