Delta Ponds Looking South 6"x 8"

There must be hundreds of paintings at Delta Ponds.  This one has lots of things to do better next time but some things I think worked.
This scene was too complicated.  I need to think about having only 3 or 4 masses.  I wish I hadn't made a peak on that mountain to the right.  I suppose the one on the leftt (Spencer's Butte) leads you out of the picture but that doesn't bother me right now.  I pretty much like the grey of the distant trees and especially happy with the trees that are creating the main reflection.  I've been working on how to paint trees that don't have leaves and I think that worked here.
