Start of a Pond Painting

I'm having trouble with the bottom of the reeds in this algae-covered pond.  They should be in clumps and instead they look like a massive upright group of grasses.  Fixing that will, I hope, solve what I think is the major issue with this painting.  I would like to have some reflection of the reeds in the pond, but the algae cover is way too thick -- I may make that up.

My paintings now up at Quatermaine's Coffee in Bethesda are generating a lot of fun emails and calls from people ... some of whom say they didn't realize I was a painter.  Funny how life can be so compartmentalized.
