The scene is nostalgic,beatiful, very well composed, very well excecuted, it almost looks watercolor. I like  the placement of the signature. Very good Skylar, your are a very talented artist

This is really great!  The car has exactly the right treatment, and I like the shadowed area between the foreground and the car.

Kisu - Thanks. I was really pleased with how it turned out. I tend to paint really quickly, and sometimes don't look at the over-all 'til it's finished.

Thank you, Kika. I may have to paint more on the subject, considering the reactions I'm getting.

Absolutely love this one! Love the license plate, too, by the way!  Your colors and values..... everything works beautifully!

Jan - Thank you so much! It seems when I call upon my childhood memories, the image seems to strike  chord. If I was smart, I would just do nostalgic images! As far a vales go, that has just come with practise - lots of practise.

I really like the composition. The two pathes, the trees framing, the gates leading, asymetrical design.
