Based on what I said before Fraser, I LOVE this. I really like the additional colors. It adds so much character. The extra picture within the picture is also a very cool, though surrealistic way to break up the space, which I also quite like. It's one of your trademarks, as I recall from when you were doing a lady standing on a balcony watching ships in bubbles floating by. . . It's rather trippy. Talk about depth, eh? Hahah. Depth within depth within dimensions. . . very cool. Anyway, I like the purple quite a lot. Good choice. I hope you enjoyed the process.

I think JustJean and I are coming from different directions in this case. But I respect her take on them. May be a naturalist painter vs painting a painting as an end in itself kind of contrast in the evaluation of a painting. Maybe the first one is more appealing for other reasons. Dunno.

But when one starts out with a color statement as this was before, I interpret it that way and I comment based on where I think you're aiming. Hope it was fun and yielded something. As I say, I prefer this second third fourth one.

I guess I have not yet seen the original, but this is stunning!

I like the blue which really brings the vase to life in this painting but I also like the patch of heavy texture on the wall that shows more in the first painting :D:D

A beautiful example of using composition to raise the bar. This has much more impact than the original using the same elements.

Oh no.. time warping....I just hope I don't end up in the 1600's. I am sure it wasn't nice for herbalists.
Beautiful again Neil, instant warmth with this one. A complete winner.
