I've fussed with this picture for so long....well maybe eight or nine months...that I think I just have to stop. While on a drive last October I stumbled upon some really pretty scenery in Conway, took lots of photos and did maybe a dozen oil and watercolor pieces, including this. It is the largest and for that reason, perhaps, it has occupied my attention far more than any of the others. Maybe it looks that way? Has had too much attention? Not really sure it's integrated and balanced well; some of the phrases maybe don't go with others.....the foreground is maybe in a different "language"? An artist friend, whose opinion I value, offered early on in my work on this that it looked like three pictures! I think I've reduced it to no more than two!
