I really like about the moon like an hot air ballon made from a lightbulb. A nice use of oil but --- about the composition I had the impression that something doesn't work and I think is the scenario, expecially the tree, imo it contast with the house, if the house go on a direction (and i think that bring the viewer outside the scene 'cause it's pointing away from the kids) the tree goes on the opposite direction. So I think that the house and the tree are misplaced. About the background it look too STRONG, but maybe is only my opinion and also considering the oil is acceptable.
But is very original and nice. Keep doing the good art!

Art is art. It should not be judged based on standards of "good" and "bad." It should be "judge"d based on the standard of intention. Does this art convey its intention to those who view it? I cannot tell because I have not been told of its intentions. But, then again, I should not be told these intentions; I can assume that, since this is the finished product, the submitted product, the final product, it appears as the author intended it to appear.
I think that this art is lovely and creative, but that does not mean anything. I think the house and trees are witty in the way that they are drawn, but that does not mean anything. The artist should not cater to my desires, only his.
The only thing that matters is that this artist shares his work because it is finished. It is done. And I rate this deviation with five stars in every category because it is exactly as it is meant to be.

I think you stated about art in your critique is the epitome of what art should be in its most perfect form. Your description of art is so articulate when it comes to capturing the very essence of art.

I adore this painting. Absolutely delightful.
I love the concept, how you took an idea that I have seen before, and sort of remixed it with the light bulbs, it's something that I could see selling very well as a canvas in a big department store, because it's out there, but still commercial. This would look great on a child's wall, or on a off-beat valentines day card, or a phone case, it's really hitting every market.

You hit it out of the ball park with the moon, I didn't even notice the big light bulb was actually the moon until my 5th or so look, and it really blew me away. It almost looks digital, like you overlapped a picture of the moon onto the painting, and the fact you did that by hand makes me envious of your raw talent. The stars are fantastic, how they fade down is really pretty, the clouds are on point, and the lighting is fantastic.

Now, the very bottom of the painting is where you could improve. That house and tree are not the best, and the little plants are not doing it for me either, it looks rushed. Her face could also be a little more inspired, because the little boy is excellent, and I don't think the girl matches. So that's where I docked you some points.

Overall it's a fantastic painting, and I would totally buy it if I saw it for sale at a store. Oh, and your use of color is also very very good. The blues are really doing it for me, and how you showed restraint with your blacks also shows how well you understand color.
Fantastic work!!

This work is absolutely gorgeous. The suttle tones really make the piece. The lightbulbs are so creative! This picture certainly tells a story as to whats happening. It has almost a child like feel to it that I absolutely adore. This piece should be on the cover of a children's book! You can really see the amount of thought and consideration that went into this piece. This piece is absolutely perfect. I cant think of a thing it lacks or needs improvement on. Also I cannot give you enough praise on this piece. It is really really lovely. Don't ever stop dreaming and coming up with wonderful stories. They say a picture speaks a thousand words and this really does just that.

This is so beautiful, absolutely stunning piece of artwork. It's so emotionally touching, The concept is so intricate and the details are perfect. I absolutely love this <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> Good work!! The stars are sick btw.. I
d love to look at some of your other work... Keep it up! If only I could paint with that much power (: This is so incredibly deep... The shading is so perfect... How in the world... This I definitely a piece worth an award. End game. This will most definitely be core inspiration for my future works... Not saying I could conjure something up anything near as beautiful as this, though.
