    You certainly gave the foggy effect quite well. Maybe too much of the painting is high key, so probably a differect aspect ratio of the sheet, much wider than high, with more of the fence in the close range and maybe a tree in the close/mid field, thus more visible, would be interesting to consider as an experiment #2 ...

    Not to disagree with Caesar, but I could see this sky really working as a place to drop in a written poem or something, perhaps as a card that goes with a bouquet sent from the florist, sized down. There's room for text is what I'm saying.

    It's very artistic, the way you've painted, the subtlety and colors. I wouldn't know whether it would do it justice to have it printed, because subtlety is very iffy when printing even in the high end jobs. But on the screen it looks great where the subtleties show up.

    Love this one, it is so open, it gives space to imagination, reminds me of Leopardi's poem "The Infinite":

    Always dear to me was this lonely hill,
    And this hedge, which from so much part
    Of the ultimate horizon the view excludes.
    But sitting and gazing, boundless
    Spaces beyond that, and more than human
    Silences and profoundest quiet
    I in thoughts pretend to myself, where almost
    The heart is overwhelmed. And as the wind
    I hear rustle through these plants, I such
    Infinite silence to this voice
    Go on comparing: and come to mind the eternal
    And the dead seasons, and the present
    And the living, and the sound of it. So through this
    Immensity is drowned my thoughts:
    And being shipwrecked is sweet to me in this sea.

    That's what art's about, isn't it -- at some point it's about the relationship between the art and the viewer, sort of like speed dating. (D Akey)

    Oh, Madonna mia! L'infinito di Giacomo Leopardi!
    Great translation. It keeps enough of the flavour and of the poetic force of this immensely valuable sample out of Leopardi's many class masterpieces.
    What an incredible pleasure of sounds and feelings and sentiments and thought, among conscious, suconscious and unconscious it gives and its reference to that instant when we perceive that sudden, shivering, immediate consciousness spike to be a lonely, naked "I", subject, in sč faced to an overwhelming mysterious, external reality made of all the rest, a per sé. Kierkegaard's anxiety or Caspar Friedrich's masterpiece painting sublime put in words and souns ....

    For anyone having a a software with a voice synthetizer for Italian, it could be interesting to listen to also to its sounds and words in the original language. Even better it would be to type "L'Infinito lettura" on google search and enjoy its reading by either or both of two great and now deceased actors very popular few decades ago, Nando Gazzolo (my preferred version) and Vittorio Gasmann. Just listen, it's sheer music, like an elvish poetri or song ....

    «Sempre caro mi fu quest'ermo colle,
    e questa siepe, che da tanta parte
    dell'ultimo orizzonte il guardo esclude.
    Ma sedendo e mirando, interminati
    spazi di lą da quella, e sovrumani
    silenzi, e profondissima quiete
    io nel pensier mi fingo, ove per poco
    il cor non si spaura. E come il vento
    odo stormir tra queste piante, io quello
    infinito silenzio a questa voce
    vo comparando: e mi sovvien l'eterno,
    e le morte stagioni, e la presente
    e viva, e il suon di lei. Cosģ tra questa
    immensitą s'annega il pensier mio:
    e il naufragar m'č dolce in questo mare. »
