Hola Rob, me gustan mucho las ultimas obras, muy buenas.
Aunque yo no pinte, estoy muy ligada al mundo del arte, por eso todos los enlaces que tengo en mi blog, de artistas pintores.
Saludos
Concha

Lovely painting Rob. That winter light is just right...and I like the little car heading off to who knows where...sort of appropriate for the end of the year! Hope you have a happy new year!

Another beauty, Rob. You're lucky the postman is still able to get to you. Our local roads have been pretty much impassable for a couple of days.

Great take on this winter scene! Love that atmospherically dim backline of trees with the touch of pink.
