    Gabe, the texture and colors are quite nice. This reminds me of a Pacific Northwest scene. For I know and love that green! Usually on the bark of Redwoods, Red Cedars, and Sawara Cypresses. I’ve...

    Nice, the dark forest complements the rock's underside, plus it creates depth for the scene.

    Have you ever explored back there?
