I have not painted small painting for months. I was working on the bigger painting like Tranquil Lake (that I posted earlier) and some 3D works for sometimes. I decided to do a small work and here is the painting. Hope to hear your comments. Thanks.

I experimented working with acrylic on rice paper. I have left it there for sometime without any intention to complete it. There is no reason for that. I saw the paintings today and I decided to give a finishing touch on them. I have signed them today, at last, two paintings done!
