JJ, is this a proof print, or the final work? If it is a proof you might want to work a bit on the pine tree. If it is the final it is nice as it is.

Joseph,I'll be adding to the background to this scene,this is my seventh plate I've engraved and printed really enjoy hand engraving the copper plates and printing.The copper plates are easy to push a graver thorough.Go to page 2 & 4and see other prints I've done. J.J.
