You know Michelle, while I don't care for your childish and sometimes reckless style, I do enjoy how you can render fabrics and juxtapose ideas against a surreal environment that causes me and I suspect other viewers to be forced to think about what is reality anyway, and what you are actually doing to make us look at it according to your rules. Nice. The artist telling the world how to see it from the artist's point of view.

Yes, I've also never been a fan of the "Primitive Style" of painting. Grandma Moses...etc..
But that might not be what you're going for, here. If you'd like to know where you need improvement, I'd say pay more attention to your drawing before laying down the paint. Look at your first post. The lines representing the piano are not straight or equally apart. They've been hastily drawn in. Take time with it, like Carl is doing with his Grand Canyon painting.
You can't paint well until you can draw well.

Glad to see you continue to work on this in spite of comments about this and your work in general. My hat is off to you my lady. Look forward to seeing this as the finished product. When you submit it into any contest, be sure it is properly cropped to not show any background. Just the professional way to do it.

"Glad to see you continue to work on this in spite of comments about this and your work in general."
Yes! The comments are meant as helpful suggestions. I haven't seen any mean spirited critiques in here. As a community we want to improve as artists and also help others do the same. I will always welcome a truthful observation of my work rather than someone telling me "Oh, how nice," so that they don't hurt my feelings. I can't grow as an artist that way.
So keep painting....and drawing, too.

Earth, Mars and maybe Venus? Love it. Be sure to crop it properly for the final product.
