This is such a lovely memory and so beautifully painted. I especially love the leaves - and the litle green boat. Wonderful picture! Have a lovely, creative week!

What a lovely autumn picture! Brings back some memories for me too, riding a small boat with my grandfather a long time ago. Great work!

Sweet and tender! What a wonderful father-daughter memory. I love the softness of the water, too. Please promise me you won't go canoeing when Gustav's around, though. Stay safe this week, Eric.

Man, I really, really like your work. Seriously, no exaggeration. Everything you do is so consistently excellent.

This is a great piece. I really like the water and the background -- the textures are perfect. Also, the gradients on the leaves and the vests add an extra autumnal punch. Excellent.
