Thanks Mike! Always appreciate your comments. The photo is not the best, I might try to rephotograph it to get the better value of the colour contrasts... it's a bit pale compared to the actual one! Thanks again.

Exactly as I remember it too! I like the light and shadow effect on the right side house and the reflections in the water. Great job!

Artist Statement
for Joan Hutchingame
Joan HutchingameHi everyone! I'm just a budding artist! I've always longed to paint but put it off as an activity in my golden years. I was convinced to start earlier than later, so I went for it. I seem to feel that someone is painting through me... I always loved and was good at drawing but had never experienced oil painting. I immediately fell in love with it and would like to try other mediums. I've taken some courses with a few known Québec artists but now want to try on my own for a while.

I really like this... not much use in critique... I love the trees and the snow and the colors of the reds and yellows... there is depth.... if I had to come... view answer
