How peaceful and enjoyable to watch!
May I ask how you painted the very thin branches? Did you use a brush for those?

So nice! Congratulations. My favorite part is the setting (or rising?) sun on the horizon. I think I'll go put on a sweater now!

Again thanks to all for the wonderful comments about the painting, yes all the branches etc are done with a brush, a very sharp point one. Have a great evening Mike

Breathtakingly beautiful. Cold, crisp day with unspoiled snow and a stream that leads you right into the painting.

I can see why your wife wouldn't let you sell this.
I'm particularly fascinated by the snow and water!

Margaret, she came into the studio and I showed the piece to her for some feed back all I got was this isn't leaving the house enough said. I'm glad she asked for it now it will stay with us.

I LOVE it. It's absolutely beautiful. I'm living down here in Florida, after spending most of my life in Illinois. I so miss the beautiful winter snow scenes especially during this time of year. Thanks for sharing.

Very lovely, and the sun keeps the winter scene from being off-putting. The size of 4" x 14" amazes me.
