Open for Critique - Mary Beth Brath

Ok painting buddies. Any suggestions before I varnish? I finished the trees today and want to keep it as plein air as possible.

Mary Beth, I love the soft feel of this and your vibrant color selection. Since you asked...the post and marker are most definitely the center of attention here...maybe that is what you intended as you painted it so carefully. If not you could hide part of it behind a shrub or just eliminate it all together.

Good advice Julie. Maybe I should add a small animal on the post or even add a person standing partially behind the bush and reading the sign. Not sure if this would qualify as a plein air for the exhibit in the mansion if I make more changes.
