Finally done, thank you everyone for your help
I'm about to try this as a landscape painting, based on the rocks near where I live, a celtic-ish fishing shrine. It feels fairly balanced to my eye, with my fish carving at the focal point when I divide it in thirds. It's for a small galllery that exhibits local work, I want to get away from the typical "Nova Scotia fishing village" cliche a tad while still fitting in. I've included a photo of the last one I did as well.
Is there anything that really stands out as a problem in the composition?
progress so far and advice on symbols
I'm now at the stage of putting some carvings on my stone. Here are a bunch of quick ideas, mostly looking for a pleasing visual design. I'd value people's input as to whether any of them stand out. Also, carvings on the path or no carvings?
Thank you all

Another small step - getting there at last
I've finished the stone I think, now working on the vegetation then soon will be done !
Any thoughts most welcome ..
(And Velocity - I wish I could paint like that - Roger Dean is just so creative, I've always loved his stuff!)
