A Primitive "folk art" style of painting

As promised, here is a photo of one of the acrylic paintings I was working on the other day. I had to clean off my crafting desk, put away the thread, felt, and other bear supplies. Finally, I was able to pull out some paints, a stretched canvas and see if I could come up with a project I had in mind.

Since the weather is getting cooler here I wanted to do a snow scene. I looked back through my stash of decorative painting magazines and found the perfect backdrop. Of course, I didn't have the recommended paint colors, so I improvised. I wanted to attempt a primitive "folk art" style of girl with lightened forehead and long nose. Here is what I came up with. It's titled "It's Snowing!".

It's been a while since I dropped in to see what you have been up to... she really is quite lovely.
