I cannot make a "critique" comment as I don't have a premium membership, but I would love to offer a small bit.

You are truly a master with the palette knife, and with color blending, perspective, and unity. Your paintings are unique and beautiful, and I marvel at every one.

I love the soft, white-blue colors in this one; I am reminded of a calm, foggy morning after the rain. There are so many things hidden in your paintings, like how in the middle it is white, and slowly darkens towards the edges of the canvas, almost pulling you in, inviting you to walk down the path. It is at the same time friendly and mysterious.

It is hard for me to find anything to offer critique on in this painting, however, I am not sure of the orange and red paint on the trees. I don't know whether to praise it as tasteful disharmony, or a little too distracting from the color scheme and the overall light bluish-green gradient.. They are vivid, different colors thrown into a peaceful scene. I might have left them out if it was my painting, but, of course, I am always afraid of messing my paintings up!

Congratulations on your newborn grandson! I am very happy for you, and I hope he becomes a painter as skilled and well-known as you, so in the future he may continue your legacy!
