It seems like a simple enough design yet with the right lighting and colors there's just more to it.The sky says something with the non traditional colors yet inviting. The shadow of the foreword tree is cool and calm. The slight hint of the bright warm sun in the water. I don't know maybe I'm dreaming how does it strike you. Getting down to the last couple of painting for 2013 this is a small collector size 6 X 8.
