I like the yellow and the blue. Not sure about the red, though. The frames on the table make me happy.....

the horizontal complex makes the whole thing more busy.

First of all SORRY SORRY SORRY ordie4 but you may have noticed that I have been taking you for a woman all the time.........

As to your painting; I like the red but would add some darker yellows in SOME of the flowers and fade out a little the brown of the table (?). Anyone else of this opinion ? Or am I too picky ?

I like this but I would really enjoy it more if there were expressions on the people in the photos as my eye is lead there.

it is busy...but that is not the issue...(especially for you)
being disconected is...

your other work is so mad-cap wonderful
maybe you are trying too hard this time

as for this piece...
*contrast...in flowers particularly, as mensioned
*simplifiy the background as J mensioned
*unify the colors...relate them...to connect the piece...
*the orange/ red of curtains and flowers...maybe even put
some of that color idea into the table
*the blue sticks out too much...perhaps add some of the
green into the blue...or more blue all around...or...

I think you get the idea...?
it is good to experiment...just keep trying...

and do not abandon your mad-cap style either...
I am very fond of it!
