Really like this - and how you've cropped the top.

Like it a lot

This looks great Diane.

Poignant and packs quite a punch!

This painting I found I wanted to look and discover. The cropping of the heads brings about the intimacy of the pose - although it is not a pose. The lines and colour being such, they too have added a captured "moment", the "sitters" suddenly aware they are the focus. A very good piece of art.

You’ve caught something quite personal here Diane, a terrific painting. Puts me in mind of the portraits of children by Joan Eardley ......they are captivating.

Fiona mentioned J Eardley, yes, they reminded me, too.

This is really captivating, Diane. Beautiful.

Thank you Romila, Denise, Heather, Ellen and George :) Marjorie and Fiona...I have looked up Joan Eardley, love her landscapes! Have ordered a book! Thank you Clive, I appreciate your comments.

Don’t know your location Diane but there is a Joan Eardley exhibition at the Scottish gallery in Edinburgh July 28th - August 28th. I can promise, if you like her work you won’t be disappointed. I think there are three of four books out, and one recently released.

Thanks for the info Fiona, it would be great to see it. ( I am miles away on the border of Birmingham and the Black Country.)

Hi Diane, yes Spuggs is still going strong she is ten this year. I’m sure she will outlive me! 😂 Would you like to adopt her? Lol. Can you get a train from Birmingham to Edinburg?

This caught my eye greatly, its really good, the depth in the background and the exaggeration in a 'mannerist' way of the figure on the right. I love how you are experimenting so much and are brave enough to share it here ... and now I also have read about this Joan Eardley who I have just googled and am really stunned by much of the work I have just seen.

Thank you Justin, I appreciate your comments and yes Joan Eardley's work is excellent and I can see why it appeals to you.
