    Great brushes - I especially like how you painted the tree on the right and the water is just wow! The sky is beautiful too.

    I have long been a fan of Michael James but would never have the patience to paint every blade of grass and leaf like he does.

    I think you would have many takers if you decided to share your brushes - hint, hint.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    Really terrific, Enchanter.

    Enjoying the moment tremendously. Those brushes are working out for you. I'm with June in that the tree on the right particularly is a fantastic treatment. I like the mix between airy painterly indication and detailed up with leaves on a closer plane.

    The overall effect of the location setting is very pleasing and refreshing where I feel nature in one of its relaxed states has it all in hand.
