You're avatart is very appealing and I'm glad it is. This work has a nice athmosphere, sort of sad, but in a musical way I'd say. Like a song by Spain or something, with a night feeling touch. nice. The face reminds me of a mask, one obsession I have. I like the way the main figure's arms and neck are so long and seem out of place wich gives it far more expression then normal anatomy. But that could just be me disliking the normal.

there's almost a tiny sense of understanding in the father's face; like he knows what he is going through, so he's going to try to find some way to go beyond it.

lovely piece.
