beyond simmilarity
there is distinction here
and romance
and an ocean of mid tones in this
that had drained out
of my tea, but
one can see common shapings
and color motions
and funny shaped teapots, dishes,
and blue, darks, skin and yellow

enjoying this very much
can see J's style filtering into your own
in this intimate and lovely space

No questions. No answers.

Observation: even expressionistically, mom's mouth?

Was thinking metaphorically/psychologically.

Hey, forget the artist's intention. I'll "perceive"/create my own story...:D

THIS is figurative.
This is the essence of Simonism and it is the new style done brilliantly.
I see expression in her smile.
I don't think it would be hurt by more work but I don't think it would suffer at all from stopping right here.
It is very mature in content and I like how you have stayed true to the essence of your style and added subject without painting it LIKE anybody else. Your rules of aesthetics are strong and the painting is as glittering as your buildings.
Breakthrough, if you ask me!
