Thank you! It is always a great feeling when something is "created" to express feelings, so others "connect"... that someone, some where is appreciative! THEN the art is COMPLETE: for art should be a communication, to others! ALONG with expressing oneself! Really not sure WHICH of these is the most important!! With this painting, the power and strength and free, fluid-dance feeling that these trees express... was my ultimate goal! I think I actually might have even been standing in the water, in order to get the perspective so the trees became the "King Leer" of the design! (If they had been surrounded TOTAL with the background "mountains"... they would have lost their "power and dignity"!! But creating them, so they broke into the sky area...helped give them their "power"....Also, the rest of the painting kind of took "second fiddle" (by giving less detail/information) order for the trees to then dominate this creation!

Excellent painting!
