Dear Ann,
Thank you for sharing a beautiful work and the precious process in demo. Me,too, love the quoted Japanese proverb that means "never give up or lose hope."
Cheers, Sadami

Hi Ann, what a beautiful finish! It looks great - especially those awesome trees and foliage. I also just love your new banner. What will you be on to next?

I really love the effect of the reflections on the water. Excellent work!

Sadami, thank you. I enjoyed your blog too. Nice to know someone appreciates that proverb too.

Glad you like the finished painting as well as the banner, Deb. I cropped the photo of the painting in Photoshop and stretched it. For my next painting, I'm considering a very close crop of a photo provided by Jaytee & Ruth for the Mindbenders project. The area I zeroed in on is about a 1" to 1 1/2" square. Should be fun ha ha.

Carole, I so appreciate your comments.

Sara, Thanks for your kinds comments.
