Look at you Edward!!! Amazing! I am just so impressed with the composition and you have me stymied with the awesome light reflection on the wood floor. Bravo!

Fantastic, Edward. One of my favorite museums. I used to live right around the corner. Love this painting.

This is a warm family moment...seems as if they are not sure to stay for the Braque(or Picasso) painting.:-)
Nice work as usual, Edward.

I thought I had commented on this a while back.
Great job! I like how the man i balanced out by the two boys on each side who are against a back light.

I love your museum pieces. One has a real sense of what the patrons are feeling. You somehow capture a moment, a hesitation...as if they are not sure what to think...but need to take another look. It is not a character study, but a moment in time.

Karen Bruson said...

Wow, fabulous job. Difficult subject to master but you did it.

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

Oh, this is one of the very best 'museum paintings' I've seen. Wonderful!

Gary Keimig said...

Nice painting, Edward. I can just see the impacts on those childrens faces trying to understand what they are looking at while "dad" sees it completely and is trying to explain it.

James Parker said...

I'm like Kelly..this is the best museum piece I've seen... by ANYBODY. The art is exceptional, but the essence of their feelings is not only captured, but embraced and nurtured. And the floor, Ed,.. I am floored.

Fantastic, Edward!

Gwen Bell said...

Excellent work, Edward! There is something very soothing about the color palette in this. I like the way you pulled in different values of some of the colors into various parts of the clothing and again into the painting. Very harmonious and appealing!

Celeste Bergin said...

I like the painting they are looking at!

Dewberry Fine Art said...

This is really wonderful. The shapes and the figures are very nice. Very convincing wood floor and the light from the window hitting the floor where the boy stands is perfect. The whole thing works so well.

JRonson said...

jeannette said...

Think it's great -expecially because it gives the idea that kids can also enjoy abstract art!! Yay, good for you!

I love these kinds of paintings. Is it a Kandinsky?
