 ::)  Chuckle, I had fun with this piece.  Started out just the cabin, then I added the lake, then the crops.  Well it just kept growing!  The fish "rolling" in the lake was a challenge, planting crops, took some thought, the tractor - getting it to fit was interesting.  Then, had to have a shed for the tractor!  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did painting it.

I really like this. I can imagine them on place mats and cups. There's something about it that although simplistic, it grabs attention.
Well done.  :clap:

That's it, you have got complementaries. The overall tone of greens is complimented by the use of reds and, the speckles of yellow in the crop rows compliment the blue water.
Lovely.   :)

Topdoginuk, thanks for your kind words.  I'm new to painting and learn with each new piece.  I appreciate the feedback on the colors.
