Thank you! Coochie is a holiday kind of Island, so I guess I was thinking the same thing :)

I love the allusions to the ocean and the far away mountains, almost as if you live in a cabin in the woods, and you are on your walk to the beach. Completely perfect work, makes me want to study under you.

I like to observe real places and then just add a touch of mystery, and let the viewer go wherever they may. I'm glad it is taking you somewhere! :)

Thanks - cypress has such a rich colour to it's foliage, and such a gnarly texture to it's bark, it's quite a challenge, enjoyable but tricky.

You never learn if you never try! One good lesson is how to be humble - everybody turns out a lemon here and there...and waiting until you are really good - that may be a bit subjective. Sometimes the better you get, the better you think you should be and so you never get to show off your work (just talking in hypotheticals) - All the best with your art anyway!:)

I like how the focus and detail are spreaded all over the canvas in a really harmonical way. Simple idea yet very interesting to look at. Well done!!

Thanks:) I ended up obscuring the main focus behind the tree so as not to make it too predictable or obvious - glad you like it!
