You've captured the light beautifully!

Beautiful light and so crisp! The white over the grey has given it a lovely depth as well. Arnie

very well done. sigh. I've been trying a snow scene...not, definitely NOT my milieu so I give you kudos

I haven't seen much from you for a longtime crazy, probably because I haven't been here. So, now this has to be a tremendous move on for you. How beautiful.

This is lovely Christine. The way you have captured the sunlight glistening on the frozen branches is remarkable. I wish I could have watched as you painted to see how you achieved this beautiful result.

Thanks Everyone! So glad you all like it.
Mikey.. I've been painting quite steady actually. Just haven't been posting here because I couldn't get anything to upload. I've been approached by a gallery to represent my work and have several shows lined up that have come to me so things are moving art wise for me. I've missed seeing you here too.

I join in with " I love it ! " Perfect scene for the Holidays ! The capture of light fascinates me and you captured it ! I also love how the taller branches of the bush on the right add interest and break up what could have been a more uniform scene. Pastels are difficult. I admire your skill !

You have more patience than I do to paint something like this. It certainly paid off...Beautiful work.

Very nice. Perspective, color, composition, spirit, etc. Applause. But the lack of detail in the center does bother me. For me, it's as if you're trying to celebrate an empty space. I keep wanting to see more texture there.

It is beautiful, but I agree with hward. It needs something. Even if it wer water, it woould have something.

Thanks everyone... I am in the process of reworking parts of this.. mainly the water. I'll repost when I get finished.

I believe this is the final version whether or not it can be improved I am tired of working on it and think for the time being anyway.. the best I can do. A year from now I may change my mind but if I do, I will start a new one. I've tried to utilize input from several artists and I do think this a better version over the first. It was a grand learning experience to say the least.

Sitting here in 41 Degrees Centigrade it was lovely to contemplate :)

This is quite lovely - hats off to you. I think you improved the work and stopped at exactly the right time.
