Yet another masterful perfect painting.

Wish you would write a book or make a video on how to paint landscapes because you are a true expert. I would feel privileged to purchase one and learn from you. I would LOVE to see how you paint such perfect trees.

Many thanks for sharing your work with us, and look forward to seeing more in the near future.

Hi Karen - Thank you. With regards to trees. I used to struggle with them until I stopped trying to make them perfect. I don't know if that makes sense, but once I loosened up and stopped worrying about detailing them to much they started to look a lot better. Who knew?

I know what you mean, when trying too hard makes it more difficult. Sometimes less is better. I guess using the right brush and the right stroke is a personal thing, something I must find. Eventually I get it.

Glad to have you back.

Rich,
Just wanted to add that you have an amazing talent in your use of light. For me, it's what sets your work apart.
I am working hard on that aspect of painting, as I realize it can take a piece to another level, and your's is perfect!
