Comment on this artwork

This painting was from a time around year 2000 when I was painting a lot of scenes around the Mississippi River aside Minneapolis including St. Anthony Main. Of course, I would snap photos, but found that sketches were the best resource when it came to executing the painting. Sketches promote interesting compositional directions. I am not interested in seeing if I can render a scene from a photograph. It is good to know you are able to render in a realistic way, but paintings that are simply facsimiles of a photograph are absolutely not interesting to me.
