MY COMMENTS:
Sometime I think, that I have it all, but I guess I have.
sometime Between all that I have, I'm still looking for to start over. because, sometime all that I have doesn't see me, it is bigger than me and that I've had imagined to raise.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
what about Theme and composition, and tha painting it self
( style, visual linework...)

Cio,

it seems to me as if you meant to paint something very personal and kind of deep. So why not paint from your own heart, and not via Dalí for example? I mean, that Spanish background, is that a special place to you which helps you in making your point, or is it in fact a scenery from where you are/have been? What about the nude figure? Who is he? Why is he there? What does he do to make your point?

I don't mean to sound too critical here, but I see so many paint for the wrong reasons. Do not be anyone else but yourself. I guarantee you you have ways to express yourself with paint that will be far more authentic than this.

Another thing; is this how you always sign you paintings? It looks like grafitti to me, and takes too much attention.

It is very Dali-like

The rendering is good....your colors are pleasing

The composition is a bit too centered for me

Good work!

An empty picnic --

I agree about the off-centeredness...however, do like the style, design, and especially the palette. The vast wasteland enhances the mood of isolation. the skies of clouds promise eventual rain --

the background and the rose do it for me completely. i feel like everything else just distracts from those 2 things...almost like you could just paint over everything else and leave those 2 things...the smoothness of the paint application in the background is arresting...the flower too.
