Well, I'm back. I think I got lost in the O-Zone for a few weeks. This painting/illustration is from pictures I took in Downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico of the Mission. The mountains in the background are from Sedona, Arizona, and the tree is from Washington State Capital park. I hope you enjoy it.

I love the colours; your painting has a bit of a mystical and dreamy feel to me.

Great scene and great idea to make a composite from various locations. The only suggestion I would recommend is to make the tree much darker since the scene is back lit. I do like your painting a lot.

Thank you everyone for your kind posts.
Jibes, yes, I thought about darkening the tree more, but then I decided I wanted to show the accents of tones on the edges. i may make some changes and try that to see what it would look like. Thank you for the input.

Very, very beautiful graphically styled rendering of the real scene. The reality isn't simplified, rather perfectly distilled in its essence.

Intriguing exploration. I like the relationship visually between the cracks in the dirt and the tree branches. It's all as if you're assembling components, as one might in exploring history or a travel and making notes in a journal. Cool.

I have to say you have a unique style on your illustration/painting. I seldom travel or not even travel, and this painting shows me another culture and how you painted in from your "eyes" you see. Beautiful. Love those grey reflection shade and cracks :)

Very elegant - engaging while tranquil. Very nice.

I must thank all of you for your kind comments. I am always learning and appreciate the wisdom of the people around me....especially when they enjoy the same thing I enjoy.
D Akey, yes, I wanted to have a repetition of the lines in the tree and the ground.
