Very intriguing. Modigliani and Klimt mashup inspiration?
The only distraction of note for me is the abdomen of the woman on the right - that vertical line might be rendered correctly, but appears unnatural on the centre line and with such different coloration.
Like this one a lot!

This gave me a sense of experiencing Japonism
( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japonism )
It has an antique feel, and is quite gentle and mysterious

Thank you very much! :DDDD
I agree with the Modigliani and Klimt comparison. Well done.

Whatever we do, it will always remind someone something that was done before.
There's no escape from it. Reinventing the wheel may be possible in the realm of hi tech. In art it seems next to impossible. We are all influenced by other people's work, but at the end of the day we find our own language. We have no choice in the matter. It happens naturally.
I've always liked your work. I always wait for the next one.

Hairy said it perfectly. Your work is beautiful.

A good friend of mine showed me back in the 80's how he incorporates elephant dung in his large scale paintings (yes, true, and it was dry so it didn't smell). Many years later comes an up and coming international "star" (I think his work is dung) called Chris Ofili and borrows my friend's sh.. without telling anyone or paying royalties!....

HW: interesting story about the elephant dung. It's all in the marketing.

Is he the one who painted Madonna with dung? That's crazy!
