    That's definitely one of the most elaborate comments I've received on this image and I appreciate it! Digital landscape painting is still something I'm kind of struggling with, even three years after this image was posted (they seem to come a lot more naturally with traditional media for me) - but now that you mention it, it DOES look like it has a bit of a motion blur quality to it..

    Wow, I love it. Know what feeling I get from this? It's like the fleeting beauty of driving on a highway at 60 mph, the scenic view outside your window a blur. When I look at this and see the blurry effect going on in the painting, I'm like, "Please, slow down. Can't we stop the car so I can see that beautiful lake more clearly, so I can enjoy it? Why are we going so fast?" Not knowing that this is the finished product and there is no slowed-down version. But that's what makes a painting or picture good. I took a photography class and learned that a good picture puts the viewer's eyes on a certain path, like an S-curve. This picture is kind of like that; it puts my mind on a path that we're going at 60 mph, and I'm imagining a better view if we only slowed down. Or it's like we took a blurry photo and I say, "Come on. Can't we take a better one?" I'm not saying the painting is bad. Quite the opposite. It's good that it makes me imagine things.

    Also I've commented on quite a bit of your art recently. I'm not stalking you or anything, it's just that when I see more of your art on the side I click on it like an enticing advertisement.
