I've never really been able to say something like this, but I think, I'm finally and honestly happy with my style.

I was always rarely proud of my works and usually skeptical, as everyone probably can relate with. You look at your own work and just sigh as you size yourself up against those bigshot artists with crazy techniques, skills, styles and knowledge in general. But then theres those odd few drawings you make where you really do feel like you did your best, and exceeded your expectations, and only you appreciate it that much-- nobody else can see the way you see it as an improvement that's beyond you. And it makes you happy to be able to say, "I made that!" Because I feel like I've improved this year!

This painting was inspired by RHADS 's painting, Nature Salvation. It's an absolute dream and stunner to look at.

In loooove with this piece. Absolutely amazing as always, I love the soft white tones in this one with the clouds but its contrasted with the sharpness of the hair. The subtle redness is also interesting too, I love how you incoporated the birds i makes it look so angelic. I love her expression too, she actually has an expression if that makes sense. Your artwork always amazes me! This has to be one of my favourite pieces to be honest. Keep up the good work! Making me all jelly and shiz :P Haha jokes jokes, can't wait for more from you, keep it up!

omg wow so beautiful. I am sorry to say anything critical, but if I may... you do request critique.
the one and only 'flaw' to this infinite perfection and beauty is the way the back is registering from a medium/small view. I think if you could possibly just ad a tiny bit more definition to really identify the back as a back - it would look better, even though it is obvious the way the neck is turned, just the shading and the deep v looks like a distoreded chest and sagging cleavage in a way. you might be able to change it by only tapering in the waist more making the back more of a V. i know that its realistic that her arms would be down at her sides and making the black edges of her body end where you have them, but i think if you just pinched it in as though her arms were totally infront of her or didnt exist at all, then it would be very obvious that the line is a back, since breasts would bulge out on the sides. i hope that makes sense. i love the colors and emotion here. your style is so glowing and wonderful mixing flat and shaded elements. i like that this one has a sense of darkness to it which some of your other pieces do not have.

I've been a watcher of yours and yet I feel like I haven't seen half of your art! Which is such a pleasant surprise for me because I can now look at your work and be amazed by it. This is just gorgeous and very stunning. I can tell you really like that flowy hair style. But also the transition from her to the clouds is so creative! Very beautiful.

I read your description as well and I completely hear you. I'm still in that phase where I "size [myself] up against those bigshot artists with crazy techniques, skills, styles and knowledge in general." But it encourages me to see that an accomplished artist such as yourself went through such a season of life as well. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and your art!

I know where you are coming from. I love going to museums and think, why can't I do work like that? 
Yet, I still enjoy my work, from time to time I can step back and say, " damn woman you out did yourself!" as I kiss my hands! Well you know no one else is going to do it! 

Now, moving on, If Cloudbreaker was mine I would have been kissing both hands for it is beyond lovely! Good thing you are not here are I might have embarrassed you. I might have kissed your hands. Awkward!!! LOL

in the mid 70s i had a pupil´s exchange to england - my english friend once quoted an english poet, don´t ask me who it was: "...head in the clouds, clouds in his head..." i liked this saying...
yes, you made a lovely  picture here, so fine and full of light, it looks very positive to me... :D
