Thanks Bill! Thanks Rebecca! This one turned out nice -- one of my favorites to be sure. I actually managed to stop myself from overworking the background which made all the difference in pulling the viewer's eye forward. Anyway -- check back in a couple of weeks -- I'll have another building painting done by then. Much less daring cropping though.

Best,

David
