    Finial on the Black Bear

    I need a tidal....




    Rob this one will be in my portfolio also.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Great work Dave.

    I love the picture Dave, but I think you should do a variation for some novelty prints. I think the small tree in front of him needs something like this on it.

    I like Larry's suggestion for the title.

    I think the limb needs lightened some, the hole in in the tp might be a bit harsh, and need to soften the edges a bit, but here's a first try at ps.

    I think you got it Larry. I think Dave could put this right up there with dogs playing poker and make some retirement funds.

    Edit: I think "the scent of fall" may still apply.
