Sinking into Never

I finished this painting of Neversink last Sunday (started/finished it while I was stuck recouping at home), probably the first real painting I've done in a few years. I've done some pen and inks, but haven't gotten to sit down and use brushes in a long while, and probably one of a handful of watercolors I've done. The last one I can recall was of the Ponce de Leon Hotel courtyard a good 7 or 8 years ago. Watercolors always seem so weak, not bold enough - but this subject was perfect for them - what with the sky/trees being washed out into white. It had to be either watercolor or airbrush and I'm not quite set up to do airbrushing yet. It's about 2 feet wide by 3 feet tall. I'm planning on sending this off to the Speleoart exhibit in Bellingham Washington for the NSS Convention they are having next month. Still working on a title - the best I've come up with is "Sinking into Never," but I'm for any suggestions!

No No Gesso... just some really expensive watercolor paper that still warped even though it was really thick.
