    Enthralled by our walk thorough the Costa Rica rainforest, we venture down to a babbling stream; anticipation throws caution to the wind and builds confidence to explore. Once refreshed and ready to journey back to the lodge, I look up into the dense forest with its tangle of roots providing distinct but precarious footing and realize "the only way out is up."

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.

    This painting just draws the viewer in. Really like the reflections in the puddles and the depth of field.

    So good!


    This really speaks to me. Well done!
