Me and my mum '97, grand canyon, acrylics, 50x70cm.
This is a very personal piece. The relationship between me and my parents is not void of lint. While I have been painting some photos from that trip to 'murica for a couple of month now, it took me some time to dare paint those that show us.
I painted myself older than I was in the photo, and originally I was holding binoculars. Well...
Let me know what you think.

Thanks so much, greg. I am glad and happy that it preserves its emotion once banned on canvas.
I feel that the one head next to her is too large...will change that.
Ps: this is '90 not '97... silly me

final... happy now.
By the way, to all except Greg, this is personal but I am not touchy ;) So, if something's bothering you: shoot.
she is definitely the focus and she doesn't look terribly impressed with having her photo taken
the mesh, etc. is a guard rail/staircase thing?
child and her sitting on edge of wall next to two standing in front of wall?
composition/placements/light/colors it's yummy, but never having been there i'm a little confused by it

I like that here the border become clearer, less vague.
Your paintings are emotionally meaningful. You know that moment that you draw.
There is a plot, there is life.
It is a pleasure look at your work.
They bring a certain calm.
You correctly digging your well of inspiration.

sometimes I feel like a motherless child...first thing that came to mind. Figures with their backs turned, somber look of the boy? Nice emotional moody piece
very nice! Beautifully done and very moody, as Bev noted. Says a lot about the family!
