I laughed when I saw you describe it as "safe." I think I know what you mean, but I like this a lot... particularly the change in textures from foreground to middle ground, the variation in the size of strokes on the trees, and the interesting perspective, including the orientation of the canvas. Great feel to it.
Sorry I can't leave a more tecnical critique like Elliot and others do.To me it is delightfully refreshing. You know I love the wonderful clear colors.Page
