 :thankyou:   :thankyou:   everyone!  Much appreciated.  It's so vivid in the photo, but the painting isn't quite as 'wild'!!  Thanks, again, for the encouragement .... I'm just halfway thru the second Lily, and it's neat stuff to work with.

Sharon,

Yes, the tree on the left is so dramatic. 

Like the way you varied the different tree/shrub groups.

Is the dark line along the right side of the stream too rigid (except in the middle near the big rock)?  Maybe some lighter spots or a break in a couple places.
