Bob, What a great image. So realistic. Makes me want to jump off that pier and make a big splash.

Good grief. Photorealism and then some! Can't imagine how you did it,
or how long it took. What will you do now for an encore?? Nice job.

Thank you James. Actually, I have videos of people doing just that. I used a reference photo I took at my sister's summer place. :)

Geez Robert!

This may be your best work yet. I actually thought it was a photo when I opened up the post for the first time.

VERY well done. Bravo!:D

It's absolutely stunning, dear Robert. If perfection were of this world this painting would likely be enrolled in that bunch!

Robert,
All of your diligent efforts are well worth the amazing result,
just beautiful! I would love to be sitting on the edge of that
pier, just taking in the wonderful scene and ohhh, that water,
it is sooooo painterly inviting. Masterful!!! :)

Wow! I'm overwhelmed by the response. For some reason I'm not getting my email notifications since Yvan_C's post so I was pleasantly surprized to see the rest.
Thank you all so very much. :)

Wow Robert I thought it was a photograph at first, that really is amazing
work.
A really beautiful place as well. Your sister is very fortunate to have such lovely surroundings, I bet you visit a lot.

I totally agreed with Rob. This is so beautifully painted. I really like that lake reflection and the trees brush strokes. Excellent piece and delicated work. :):)

Robert what can I say you seem to have mastered the art of scenery....Breath taking.....I wanted to set my lawn chair down on the dock and kick back and throw my line in and wiggle my toes in the water !.....hands down this is good.

If I didn't notice the painterly effect on the background trees, I would have thought this was a photograph. Simply Awesome.

I think this is a new record for me as to the number of replies to a posting of mine.

Oh my Robert.......I just sat here staring. I am speechless. (and you know that doesn't happen often)
