The overall composition is great in all the pieces, the only thing I would comment on is diversity of the theme. When one thinks of winter rusty leaves (browns & greens), and snow / snowflakes come to mind (blues / whites). Some elements of snowflakes building a face would have been exquisite. A snowflake or "snow element" encasing one of the faces.

Other than that I feel the colors fit the the theme you were going for very well. I also don't know if any lore or mythology is playing apart of the design decisions you made. Only three of the four pieces give me a winter vibe. The two up top and bottom right proclaim your theme to me. The last one seems a bit more morbid.

Hopefully this feedback was helpful for you.

There is a definite spiritual sort of haunting beauty to them, and another thing they remind me of is like a Victorian elegance, with a touch of Davinci they are breathtaking, I'm turning to mush here because of them, thank you, Mike.

I love the second one (the red one) Is like impressive, I don't know how to explain. Did you paint it with blueberry tea? Cause I have it and it has the same color, but i didn't imagine that if you paint it would have the same color on the paper

Wow. Incredible use of color and line! I like the freshness of the splatters in juxtaposition to the clean details.
Also the dynamic expressions on the faces are beautiful!

Thank you for sharing! (And holy crap! You're selling cheap! Props for loving your audience.)
