  1. I am immediately drawn to the spatial segments of this composition complimented with a harmony of light and color values. I fail to relate the title to this work but find it to be very well executed and aesthetically pleasing.

  2. I like your technique and skills very much. Your use of color is powerful. The warmth of the canvas is immediately evident. When I enlarged the art work to full size, I found the child. I think sometimes it is difficult not to be able to see the original work. No criticism is intended about the size of the child. This was your creative choice and it works well even if it is difficult to see online! Thanks so much for your submission and I look forward to seeing more of your art work.

  3. : One of the master work; though the theme is ages old; but then using that theme he has marveled with strokes and colors; look at mothers eyes; how the tender love flows from her Self towards her child; the child is not that visible; may be the artist wants to paint the portrait of Mother; universal mother with child in her embrace.; highly suggestive and perfect. Color combination is finely executed; again the originality the artist has achieved.

  4. Interestingly ambiguous Virgin Mary this one. Placing the child outside of the work as both lover and voyer is a challenging notion against the heavily pictorial rendering of a modern cyber damsel hellbent on her sexual whimsy for admirationand desirability. Lovechild, poster pinup, fetish: credibility be damned. Feminists might have a field day here. Perhaps I see wry acerbic humour in all aspects of this thematic rendering where there is none.
