You're such a technically fantastic painter that it's a real, real pleasure to view your work. Everything here is masterful: the rich, deep, saturated tones you've achieved; the slashingly strong diagonal composition; the way the pink of your wife's cheeks is echoed in the pink of the peaches. I think it might be a little more flattering to your subject to tone the makeup down slightly, dim the pink of the cheeks, but I also love the way you've replicated that color in the fruit. There's a terrific sense of realism achieved everywhere here and a certain opulence/decadence, too, as evidenced by the wallpaper. Astounding work!

Such beautiful work! I like the inclusion of the dog! He is totally invisible until you notice the wonderful placement of the ears and then his feet. The whole painting is quite gorgeously traditional, yet we understand this is a modern era woman...oh to paint like this!...I've a long way to go yet I think!
