    Thank you Thank you... ...I have to say that after 40 years of living in northern Canada snow doesn't take much imagination lol ............ Tropical heat, on the other hand...well enough said lol ......now if my enter key would actually work in this forum I could have separate sentences instead of everything running together

    Fabulous. Love the orange one owing to the subtlety. Really swell painting.

    The blue one is nice as well. I would mind the point that the river creates lunging toward the tree's stomach, as it were. I think a good rule to consider is rather than creating a tangent or intersection of three major lines like that, you might consider raising the snowbank a little before the point touches the tree. It also keeps it from being a directional pointer that leads the eye. It's not uncommon to run into that kind of thing while painting and I always toss in a break to keep it from becoming an unwanted focal point. This is just a suggestion for composition. Otherwise it rocks.

    I really love the new side of your painting you've been showing us. Shows that you have skills. How much have you painted before coming to ArtRage?

    moosie,
    You have well captured the contrast between hot summers
    and frigid winters in these appealing paintings to the point
    that I am now craving an ice cold Lemonade and a hot
    steamy mug of Ovaltine ... both at the same tiime. Well
    painted!
