Love the texture/brushstrokes, handling of the water....scale of boat/buildings a tad distracting;this viewer would've preferred simpler or less objects more water.
Artist Reply: Thanks for the comments--constructive criticism is so rare! But I'm not sure what you mean when you say the scale is too distracting--do you mean I should have placed the scene farther away from the viewer's eye? Or do you mean the scene is just too busy with stuff. Funny, but I added the boat later, then added the boy fishing. Good thing I stopped when I did!
