Thank you, Knik. This will get varnished and framed. I feel like I've turned a corner on color and hopefully perspective. Now to create 10 more this good, make a 3 fold flyer and start hitting up the galleries.

Beautiful painting! I like the blend of greens and blues. Thanks for sharing.
I do all my painting with a roller and latex paint. Shows my talent.

Thanks Knothead! Believe it or not; for the most part, talent doesn't play into it. It's a skill that is learned like fly fishing, chemistry, engine repair, etc. You just have to study it enough and work hard at it...hard work will eventually reap you a nice painting and an interesting skill. God Bless. Happy Holidays.

Great work and great expressions of nature! I bet that is a relaxing passion in painting these landscapes. I am sure you have some great visualizations and thoughts about being on the water.

Thanks for sharing Dwayne!

You're welcome, Shawn. Thank you for your support my friend. Yes, it is relaxing in the end when I am finished and have a quality painting that I can share. It does take me to the Smokies when I look at it, which is my intent. It can be a bit nerve racking near the end when a mistake could ruin it or at least change it too much. I have the weak off and will frame this one and repost. Maybe I can paint another just as good...we will see.

Thanks Jeff! I will be working on one of the West Prong tomorrow (I hope). If it turns out well I will post it. Oh, by the way, it's for sale on my ETSY shop. If anyone buys it I will throw in a nice dark wood frame and buy some supplies I need from LRO
