How nice.. aside from the come-to-be expected high level of competency,
this composition exudes the peaceful solitude of snowy woods.  

Very painterly, this one.  And intriguing depth of field created by deft illusion of lighting, shadow and shade.

Thanks Denis, im more interested this days in this kind of peaceful forlorn landscape, places that are the same kind of sanctuary as my processes of drawing is for me.  As you know the "realism" that happens comes from a complete emersion in abstract forms. I started a very large one of this, twenty times this size.  It’s so great to hear from you I hope all is well

its not really a large version of this but part this series 40" x 50" is huge well  until its on a gallery wall supersizing how small they look.

The attention to details as the branches lace and interwoven to speak the colours of winter. Absolutely beautiful

Slight typo- "Interwoven" should have been ''interweave'' Sorry for that. I understand all too well.

Your work, as always, stuns me with it's detail. You make me want to strive even harder to finally reach such skill in my own drawings!
