First time seeing, love the use of color. Seeing the sunlight and seeing the different shade of green, I can see the depth of the forest. Also well, I enjoy seeing old building and surrounding by nature. Will love if may have more details on the church. To make it little more pop not as much, for I see it a little flat. Even with the back door making deep inside the church. Maybe a corner view will make the effect of 3D. But overall of your painting, I love it and can't wait to see more of your work.
What do you think?

I live near this church. Unfortunately, it collapsed after a storm.

Given that I live near this church as well, I know that.

I find it funny that we live in the same area, both of our names can be familiarized as Danny, we are both artists, and yet, we don't know one another.

Wow, small world! You must live in the Thibodaux area or Chackbay? I live further down the bayou in Kraemer.

I know, right? Crazy coincidence! Well, now we do know each other.

Excellent work on the painting! :)

Is this church in New York or New Jersey, I feel like I seen it also when I was young, like a place in the woods I used to explore? Great work.

Thank you very much.
And never previously, I've only been selling these for about a year, but if they were selling better at the moment I'd offer $25 off all sizes through January 5th as a holiday thing. Problem with people ordering online is the shipping though, I never know how much that's going to wind up being until I go to actually ship it. ^^;

This is very well done, the greens are very lush and fading towards the light (sky) the church is remenisint of sermons gone by in a time and place long ago. This composition does evoke sense of emotion with the many tones of green, a healing, nice work!...

Thank you. It's actually a church I used to pass by every day on my way to school. The thing had never been used in my lifetime and was really almost a shell or shadow of a church with some long-forgotten story hidden among the foliage. It collapsed about a year ago due to some road construction. Paintings and photos and sculptures are almost all that's left of it now. The original painting was sold to a family that had some claim of ownership to it, so when it collapsed, they fashioned a frame for the painting out of the church's actual walls. Though I kind of wish I'd had the painting appraised before I'd sold it; when I had it taken to make prints and mentioned the price, they informed me that I had rather drastically undersold it.

Interesting story, the old wood sounds like a very good idea for staying with the theme of this work, very creative of you...
