its beautiful sooooooooooo beautiful

ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR PAINTING! IT'S CREATIVE, AND SHOWS DIFFERENT PERSONALITIES OF THE "PERSON" HIDDEN (OR SHINING THROUGH) IN THE PAINTING. THIS PAINTING CAN BE PORTRAYED IN NUMEROUS WAYS. GREAT JOB!

lookes like the artist painted over a good pic:( wornder if the painting was pretty b4 tht?:) idk but it was cool

When I look at it, it's like someone trying to disappear or someone who feels like they are not there or not important and are disappearing into the backround.

oatmeal drowned?

seen a extremely similar composition of Nocturne 110 back in the 80's by another artist .

Ummm....he seems to have some difficulty getting his eyes to agree. He needs to revisit his fundamentals.

is that someone peering down from the heavens and crying because he does not like what he sees. it's stormy, gentle and beautiful all at once. i love his use of colors, he makes it work.

I really love the man's facial expression; I feel like it's missing something though.

The artist's use of texture to create atmosphere reminds me of early Manet (The Fifer, The Dead Toreador).
