Welcome!

Very soft, keeps it's depth well and I love the cast shadows on the house.
Nicely done!

I like the very smudged/blended look of this painting. Because everything else is soft edged, I think if you softened the grass in the background to give a sense of distance and blend into the background it could feel a be more relaxed

I think it still works and looks good!

thanks so much. I did soften and lighten the field in the background a little. donna

I like the contrast of the soft landscape against the sharper lines of the house. Very nice work!
