    Maralyn,

    Your painting is beautiful; it looks like a photograph that was enhanced with post-production software. At first glance I thought it was a photograph.

    Beautiful work. I would love to see more.

    I truly appreciate realistic painting and love the essence of what you’ve captured in this painting. I could feel the autumn breeze and the varied colored leaves driving around me as I imagined sitting on that bench. The textures made the painting come alive. Thanks for sharing
