WOW, is this fun! What am I doing inside, I want to go outside and play.

I like it very much. It radiates energy and playfulness.

very fresh and intersting! I like the delicate handling of fall trees.

The figures also seems to fit perfectly with the rest of the piece and composition. It's often hard to integrate the subject and the background so as to compliment and integrate- you've done a good job.

cheers,

Stella,

I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty to do some quick changes.
This is how I see it.
The colors are wonderful, it's magical in a way.
My edited version focuses on the child & the person ready to catch the child.

I feel it
I like it
I want to have a bit more balance of warm and cool tho, and don't know how to suggest better mating the bottom to top except y jumping in again.
maybe by flipping it upside down and checking it out?
really nice as is tho, you are a strong painter.

Thanks, All.
It's made with watercolor pencils on Bristol paper about 17x13. I sent it to a juried show of Color Pencil Society and it wasn't accepted, boo-hoo http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/frown.gif . May be, it will land me a job as an illustrator?
