    Lovely paintings and the second one feels very magical with the change of landscape and the appearance of the girl...love them both. Well done, Pat

    It's interesting to see how you changed between versions, I think these would look great in a frame - separated but side by side.

    Both look great!

    Oh.. My.. WOW! These are gorgeous!!! I love both of them.. but I think I like the one with the girl better. It seems to draw me into the picture more.. and there's so much to look at while I'm there.. wonderful!

    I agree, both are beautiful Pat and my preference is for "A Walk into Autumn".
    June.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    Cool!

    I would only suggest that you consider relative scale a bit in popping in a character. The trees and bushes look sort of small for nature. But other than that she's a good example of making variations using existing elements. The style and colors fit pretty nicely. Did you take the girl from another painting or is she painted for this background?

    Anyway, it's one way to face the fork in the creative decision making process -- take the left and right fork and get yourself 2 paintings.

    Nice ones, Pat!

    wonderful work here Pat, I love mountains and you have created a beautiful set here, I like the girl as the "path" runs fairly straight and leads one into the painting as Bushcraftonfire mentioned. the one of the stream seems to run a bit too straight right out of the picture for my taste but I like the yellow bush on the left a lot so each has its own charms... well done!...

    Many thanks to all of you for checking it out and giving all the comments, and which one you like best, it is so appreciated for comments and advise.
    DAkey, the girl was painted long ago in another painting that I did not like, did not post it lol, so I cut out the girl and saved her for another painting, took a long time to find a canvas for her lol
