A beautiful piece. I love the colour combinations.

Very nice! Good depth, and the gold and violets really work. You get the feeling that the earth is holding her breath, waiting for spring again.

Artist Reply: Thank you, Randy. I rather like this one myself!

The purple and gold combinations here is subtle and beautiful. It is simultaneously cold and warm. Unpretentious composition.

Artist Reply: Thank you, David. As I said to Emily, this was really a drab scene but I liked it enough to "force" the color!

Such a beautiful landscapre.

Artist Reply: Thank you, Emily! I did exaggerate the color - dead weeds generally look DEAD!

Beautiful work.... parts almost look like a watercolor with the loose soft feeling. Is that snow painted on... the white specks? Or is is shine from the varnish?

Breath-taking Betty, just stunning! Love the light dusting of snow that is falling, the purplish haze of the mountains, and my goodness those buildings way in the distance with snow gathering on there roofs tops, just excellent!! The golden colour of the grasses, and the trees all barren and naked waiting for their winter coats.. absolutely wonderful! The whole painting is so perfectly balanced!! :o)

Nice warm painting - although at first glance I thought it was snowing and realized it was just canvas reflections in the photo.
