Thanks again Richard.  I'm currently working on another piece which I am painting from the photo, but am trying to do a more impressionistic style.  Ordinarily I would try to paint every leaf!  I would appreciate your critical eye.  I'm at a point where I need direction on some things. Hopefully posting it soon.

If you took the photo Cheryl you created the composition. You chose what to include and what to leave out. I think good photographers often paint great pictures because they have great references. if you've got a good composition, why not paint it as it is?

Thanks so much Richard for your note.  I can't say I did much on composition.  I struggle redesigning a scene, so  I paint from reference photographs.  What I paint is usually what is photographed.  When I have tried to restructure the scene, I struggle with the acceptable placement...what would be a natural rendition of the change.  I appreciate your experienced opinion!
