very good tealent i like it so much keep it up this good work

At first I was a casual observer of the two paintings.

After taking a second look, I was intrigued and amazed that the images are vibrantly alive and glowing, have soul with a internal gleem showing through their eyes.

Wait a minute this was supposed to show a sad stereotype, and yet the women in the picures are about to exlode into a butterfly, a metamorphosis into a higher being, while keeping their internal delicacy.

Then I thought maybe that is the artist herself, ascending and excelling into a higher dimention.

I looked at both for a long time. In fact I could not get enough especially the first one due to amazing level of details. Great Job !

At first I thought I knew what social stereotype these two pieces of art represent. So I casually glanced and left.
After a second look, I was intrigued and realized how vibrarntly alive the images are. Wait a minute they are supposed to represent a sad stereotype but the images almost glow and seem to have souls with a gleem of hope in their eyes as if they want to explode into a higher being, a metamorphosis that is about to happen the next second.

I think that is probably the artist herself who is exceling to a higher dimention...

Love the pickled one â€" so light, and yet so profound… Watching her watch (is she?), shelved, ..

Wonderful work! Great idea! Keep up the good work:)

Beautiful work! The first picture feels to me like the woman is expressing her true personality through the shot of red toenail polish - all her passion is depicted there. The second picture is a reminder that the unborn don't know the ugliness of the world yet. Very different - but still beautiful!

very sexy,love the touch of red, without it there would be a different message.

Wonderful paintings, nice work. :)

I love the beautiful faces of the pregnant women in the 2nd piece.
