watercolor and collage

I worked on this yesterday with our studio group. I'm not a fan of crucifixes and it came out a bit too much like that for my taste, so this morning I played more in Photoshop. Of course, I can never duplicate what I do in Photoshop with paint and brushes, but it can give me a direction without changing the painting itself. I'm soliciting any and all critiques.

I applied paint, collaged various white papers, added more paint, etc. It's fun to do a painting this way.

I'm really sick of snow and was delighted when another member of my painting group brought in some red tulips. That inspired me. This is all done with liquid watercolors which create wonderful, bright colors. First I scattered some masking fluid over my paper, hence the white spots. Snow?

Here's also a photo of our snow.
