i think they would be if they weren't so telling of what they were- a woman bending over. i think you really got that across clearly in the simple shapes you used... love the paint application too! nice work :)

Whew! The heat from that oven is HOT! :) I like this very much, the old feel, the subject, your composition.

I love this. Shapes, feel, mood.
This could work on a very large scale,..as well.
Congratulations.-S

Each color-shape-part of this has such wonderful relevancy and comes together so magically as a whole...reflected golden-baked glowing arms, apron & face; warmth of colors and oven glow; stooped over-hard working tender baker; and boy do I ever dig the swirly texture of the wall behind her - looks like you ran your fingers through it like running the icing knife through icing.

Well, yeah. But they're emphasized clearly by color though, which to me makes a difference than lines. The black rocks in this and is used exquisitely. And the green swirl of backwall filters into her shirt like smoke. That play of color on the shirt is a great touch. Yellows well used for accentuated warmth.

Like the earthiness of it.
