    Lois I have been waiting for you to post again- and this has made it all worthwhile. Love the warm tones, the fine details, and the amazing feel you have created here- brilliant work my friend!!

  • Oh, you sweetie!!!!!! I promised myself I’d hold back until I made return visits on my previous … but with life intruding lately, that took much longer than expected. I’m honored that you approve of this one … it’s a bit darker than I usually do, but then, I was in a bit of an uncharacteristically dark mood. Rosie, thank you so so so much for your lovely note and all your support … it’s so very much appreciated!!!

    Your framing and your post work always seems to express a feeling of distance to the heart. It feels like autumn is approaching and it’s kinda lonely out there. xxxx

  • Hi sweetie!!!!! Wow, you put your finger on the pulse of this one … when I was working on this image I was feeling a bit unsettled … not like me … and your intuition seems to have picked right up on that. Thank you!!!!

    Exquisite treatment, Lois…. gives the image much more warmth and heart.

  • Wendi, thank you so much … it was such a beautiful day but for some reason, the sky was a bit blown out even tho I used the nd grad filter. I was quite disappointed in it … but once I started monkeying around in Photoshop, it came to life a bit. thank you again!!!

    Oh,Lois, you are the expert at this technique. I love all of your textures. This looks like an Old Masters painting. You have some beautiful landscapes in your part of the country. Thanks for sharing your talent.
