Painting snow on location

This painting was done in front of my home on a snowy evening.  I painted it with acrylic but when I took it inside it melted! Snow had mixed with my paint creating a lovely thick medium.  I thought it was ruined when I saw the drips but some sections actually looked beautiful.  I touched up the car but left the raw drips on lower right of painting,
