Finally finihed this 18X24" oil on canvas. I have been working on a few portraits and had to set this aside from time to time. It is from my photos taken at Joyce Kilmore Memoril Forest in NC.

This is gorgeous and looked difficult to paint. You did a great job.

Beautiful job Mike, love it! I'm going to attempt one like this again. I did one a while ago, I didn't really like the turn out.

Nice perspective. Has a definite "you are there" feel to it.
