i love the picture it reminds me of live and die in the same day

The second painting, of the little girl, is stunning. A little sad, but arresting. I, too, found the painting with the deer disturbing, but it's all in the perception of the viewer. Technically, both paintings are amazing.

how beautiful it has alot of texture and clor to it. :)

the deer looks like its resting - the other things look like orchids - i suppose the eye sees what it want to see.

this is awful its horrid what kid of monster does this,what is going through his obviously messed up mind? I don't want garish uglyness like this.

that is an amazing piece of art. thank you for sharing it with everyone Jake.

This piece of art peeks my curiousity and starts to get me thinking what emotions the artist was feeling when they painted this. dipicted in this art i see not only this deer and (i am guessing) orchids, but life and death and the worlds cycle as wella s flora and fauna.

Sad yet peaceful

Thumper is next.

I think those are orchid flowers over the deer. I find it deeply sad and lovely.
