ah, now...this is a very intersting painting.

are the figures trying to tear the house down or keep it together? is this house a haven or a hell? it's like gleeful pain...

great colors, as always.

There is nowhere to live.
A house a a shell.
Life is still beautiful.

'Spent quite a bit of time with this piece - it's arresting. After some thought I'm most taken with the background the presence it takes in the unfolding drama- the effortless movement from shade to shade - the hint that it makes the corner of a room where the is scene unfolding.

I'm quite struck by the overall color balance in this piece and the minimalism of it. Most excellent. :D

timely revisiting
mind conjures stories of irrelevant christmas consuming monsters
not about this, more about my lack of organised consumption
& being judged accordingly by effervescent relatives :eek:
again, interesting push & play of exterior & interior :)
i wunder the question, has interior won this round?
no! look! an escape route, up to the left... phew
more depth, more distance, more purse'pective
more more more more more more struggle
its the time of year for life's tricky
& children & artists know it :music:

Reminds me of our kids fighting over stuff. They're not quite as haunted, though. I really would love the feel of this piece if it wasn't like I actually experienced it, like, 15 minutes ago...


It's mine.

good distribution of colors
solid comp towards the edges

Powerful messages delivered so, seemingly, simplistically.
