This was inspired from a photo of my dog. He is the chocolate lab. I painted this after he passed....right from the heart. Thank you so much for your very kind words :)

If you do not mind - one suggestion for the future. Water does reflect the sky, but it is never really the same shade and absolutely the same color. Next time just be aware of it. No, painting does not have to be realistic, but the same color on the sky and in the water makes the painting less atmospheric emotionally than it could be. Just a suggestion. I really love the atmosphere. I am just thinking how to inforce it. How I would Inforce it. )))

Thank you for your feedback, Katya! I really appreciate the advice, as I am self taught. It has been a real learning curb...mostly fun...but can't deny wanting to throw a painting or two out the window. hahahaha

I think most of us here are self taught. ) I am at least. And that is why I think the feedbacks on my search are very important to me. I am hoping that this platform is not simply about saying "good job". As artists in our own searches I am sure we can offer one another personal honest opinion. We are not experts or teachers, we are in far freer position) )) you are making a marvelous search into art)
