I love those long shadows. There is something about backlighting that is wonderful as the sun catches your lashes and makes everything so good to look at. r.

I agree with Rahina.

I too love the long cast shadows from the trees in the foreground.

Fantastic job at creating a lot of depth in this painting. It feels like the trees go on for miles and miles.

Just great!

Love that cast shadow. It sure makes the painting. but that green. We are still getting snow here and I would sure like to see a little of that. 1/2" and 23 degrees last night.
Great work, don

It's a big, beautiful land you live in Gary, as shown by those lovely landscapes you're doing. But it is a land of extremes, isn't it? Actually, I wouldn't be at all surprised if we have more snow too. Last year we had snow on June 10th. Thanks for the kind words.
