You did a wonderful job with this - so very realistic and the water just shimmers where the sun is hitting it. Great job.

This is beautiful, and wonderfully arranged compostion. Love the one bent stick in the river, and the way the darker green foliage pulls my eye back toward the sunlit area. What is the size?

Thank you!  It's so good to hear exactly what you like about it!  This piece is a little larger than 5" x 7". It is currently being professionally framed and I didn't measure it before I left it so I don't have the exact dimensions.  The hoop that is tightened with a screw is only available in an 8" size so the piece has to be re-hooped as you work on it.  I can't imagine making a very large one but I may try it one day.
