    Beautiful Composition, Color and Light

    This painting stands out for it's carefully nuanced effects, excellent use of line (drawing), and values, and flowing, balanced composition. Upon first look, however, the technical reasons for this painting's success are far from my mind; I'm drawn into the story and imagine the plaintive vibrato of the widower's violin.

    Great composition, lighting, feeling, emotion and palette choice. This piece is a masterpiece.
