Ah, reality....peaceful, serene, restful. I will have pleasant dreams tonight!

Lily's work is whimsical and unique. She's one of my favorites.

The Visual Philosopher:
I don't think that an artist who has been to art school and is featured in an impressive number of quality publications needs any "constructive criticism."
I do agree that the website has some much better work (more stimualting, really) on it than these two peices.
Check it out! :)

Strange and simplistic. What is the significance of the fungus?

These are alright. Folkart-sy, I think. Some of the work on your website are much more interesting, in both composition and subjects explored. Also, I found the portraiture much more convincing on some of works I saw on your website.

Some constructive criticism:

The use of faded color gives me an eary feeling of a childhood I would rather not remember. It brings back the scent of macaroni and cheese at my old babysitters and the feeling of boredom with nothing but a box of half broken crayons to bide my time. I feel it would be more striking and less bland if maybe there were a focal point, at this stage the images look unfinished, I am not sure what I should be focusing my attention on to grasp the concepts at hand. I feel if maybe you built up an area with more bold color the images would be more successful. However, I have submitted 3 times to this website and still have not had my work published so maybe I should be criticizing myself! I feel with a little extra push, you could have something grand here that not only brings back the smells of my boring childhood but strikes my visual palette. I think you have something here lilly just a little extra would set me off!

what is it

Style, simplicity, and message make this a uniquely moving rendition.


Nice clear simple! I like it!
