    All we can do is clap for you!
    These are fantastic, but you already know.
    The only thing is I like "Grey Pearl" better without the glaze. It kinda toned down the colours and dead-ened it a bit.

    I am also impressed with how you were able to get a female friend of yours to pose nude for you. I don't see myself asking any of my female friends other then my gf to do that for me.

    Thanks all, thank you Dahami, good to see you again.

    Pavel, I know what you mean, the color of the glaze is really more true-to-life than the first two steps were... in actuality the painting was never that bright nor pinkish... I am fortunate to a lot of art-model-friends who not only don't mind disrobing, they are ready and willing to be part of my projects...

    Just noticed the size on that one, I thought it was tiny. That's some seriously coarse canvas!

    these are really awesome, it's brilliant how you fused together breaking the edges, the floral design, and within that, the concept of the pieces as well. very nice

    I'm in love with these paintings! Ugh, the patterns flow into the figures almost seamlessly. The second is my favorite!

    Your figurative work is really lovely -particularly the sketch you posted. Honestly I would prefer these as straight figure paintings, but it's a neat series.

    These are absolutely stunning. The way you have the tattoo weaving in and out from the backdrop to the figure looks really cool.

    These are great! I like them all but in particular no.3 for the way you've painted that arm with those heat shimmer-like moving patterns and no.6 for that beautiful green you used on her left side. Beautiful work.
    Good luck with the show!
