This was a Christmas gift for my sister. It was an 8x10 on canvas. Hope everyone has had a wonderful week!

I really like this. Your color choices give a very chilly atmosphere to the scene. Well done, :clap:

Like the warm light against the cold colours of the snow. Well done.

Thank you so much! Anything you see that could improve what I do would be great. I'm all about learning. I started painting a bit over a year ago but I started a new job and and didn't get to paint so much. I recently started back and this was one of the first ones. Again, thank you so much for the compliments!

Thanks Kathrin :) I worried that I would overdo the glow.

Nicely done John. I also love the sky colours.

My only suggestion for the future is to think about composition. You have the house pretty well smack in the middle. If it was off to one side (positioned at about 1/3) it would create more tension in the piece and be more pleasing to the eye.

You know, I never even noticed the house was in the middle of the painting...that's probably the logical, orderly side of my brain arranging things subconsciously. Thanks for the input. I do greatly appreciate it!
