A panoramic landscape with a hilly blackberry patch and a appalachian tiger swallowtail in the foreground. Looking down on a rural farm with crops, chickens and cows in the middleground. In the background you see a chuch and farm, and the distant river and mountains. The size is 16"x20", oil on canvas.

That's incredible, waltcurlee. Is your inspiration what you see? Or completely imagination?

I am really amazed at the composition in terms of the perspective, balance, harmony and the exquisite detail. It is a well thought out landscape, and you manage to include enough detail to make the overall scene lively and interesting, without being to busy or overdone.

Congratulations. I like it. I confess I like paintings done in the "naive" or "primitive" style and I have a few Haitian primitive paintings in my collection.

The only thing I would have preferred is if you left out the butterfly. I have nothing against butterflies. My only suggestion is that I hope you resist the temptation of creating pictures that become overly sweet or sentimental. I confess that I find the work of Thomas Kincaid (self-styled "The Painter Of Light" ... yuck ... how pretentious and self congratulatory ) ... NAUSEATING. Sentimental paintings become saccharine- like and cloying.
