Well, it looks like it could be a Paul Gauguin but am not sure which one? Good one!

Is it Rousseau? Lovely strong shapes and colours.

I thought Rousseau too but this looks like a lion, not a tiger. It suits your colourful style, Jenny.

I’d go for Gaugin as well by the style but not sure of the title. Well painted.

It’s Gauguin, I’d have to look up the title… excellent Jenny!

I go for Gauguin! Looks good though!!

Interesting that most have gone for Gaugin, but it is Rousseau, from his painting The Dream. He’s probably most well known for his tigers, but this one has a lion. The similarity with Gaugin is probably because this is a very small section - if you look at the full picture you can see the difference in style.

Lovely Emmm yes I agree although a little like David Hockney with some of the 🍃 and branches

Great contrast, A flavour of Rousseau?

Very very good Jenny and just checked some "Art Books" of mine and yes Rousseau style.

Thank you Faye, Jill and Richard! Yes, Rousseau’s The Dream.

Excellent Jenny.

Jenny, I admire your ability in producing detail at small scale.

This is lovely Jenny, it stood out in the gallery...and I guessed Rousseau too.

Thank you, Denise, Frank and Diane!

This is fabulous, Jenny! Love the way you've framed the composition. Beautifully painted, and you've made this your own.

Thanks, Seok! It was fun to paint.
