It's very good Stevers, now you need to make a picture of it by adding some interest like a specific tree, birds, animals or even people. What you have done is fine, but it's background. Now bring it to life...

Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before, I swore---but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand, My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.

Beautiful Stever. It strikes me as being a sunrise (not sunset) and it says to me it will be a great summer day.

Your asking so I'm giving. Your tree trunk across the river looks too big to me. This shows up in your other work as well. Just something to think about.

The land on the right seems disconnected from the water, almost floating on it. Lastly, the clouds appear to be woven into the sky and should be more random in shape and location.

As a wise man once said to me. Just keep learning.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.
