We're all friends here.

I need your opinion. Your honest opinion. Insult me if you have to. I first presented this painting to my friends on Pleonast and it looked a little something like this:

I asked for suggestions on where to go from there and got a lot of "paint an ocean" suggestions. So, that's what I did even though I am not a fan of painting oceans - mine always look fake. But, I did it anyway.

Now I need your opinion again.

Here is the painting in its current state. I made it a little bigger so you could see more detail...

See the grass over on the right side? I feel like something needs to go there but I'm not sure what. I thought about a little girl with a windblown dress and a floppy hat but this painting looked more - grown-up - than that, if you know what I mean. Also, sun or no sun? And where to put it?

So, I need opinions. Come on, I know you have them. Any other suggestions are welcome, too.

Maybe instead of a girl w/ wind blowing her dress... you could make it a statue instead? Take it for what it's worth...I'm no artist. :) I think it's a lovely painting.
