That's really great. Nice colors, good composition, and lots of nice detail.
I hope you painted this BIG. With all the stuff going on, this looks like it's just begging to be a big painting that the viewer can get immersed in.
EDIT: A just saw 5 feet by 4 feet. Wise decision.
And while I hate the hell out of it when I hear people say that they can't paint or can't draw (you can't because you haven't worked at it enough), this is one of the main reasons why I really DON'T paint or draw (in any serious capacity).
I'm not only a control freak, but I'm also IMPATIENT. So I'm more of a photography guy, and my impatience has increasingly driven me into more studio-driven settings where I have more control and don't have to wait for the proper light (if possible, I'd rather just MAKE IT instead of waiting for the sun to make it).
So yeah...I have the utmost respect for serious drawers and painters. If nothing else, I seriosuly just admire their PATIENCE. Their dedication to a single piece over such a large period of time. I don't have the discipline for that shit. By comparison, I've got ADD. If I'm working on a single photo for more than a week, I say, "fuck it" and move onto something else.
