This painting has the look of a rich illustration you would find in a book from the victiorian times. I love the reds and golds together. What a beautiful piece!!!

I just love the serenity of this piece so much. The colours, the simplicity of the lines, it all creates this beautiful mood of whimsy. Wonderful.

Wow, can't believe these are paintings; they look so "clean"!

I love the peaceful beauty you have here. Her face looks soft. The curls under her face make it look very storybookish, too.

If you don't mind me comparing your work to someone elses - this reminds me of alan lee's work:) you painted everything so softly but all the colors are vivid and striking - This has to be my favorite of your works that i've seen so far...but i havn't taken a look at your whole gallery yet;) :) I will have to use your work as inspiration for my next painting as well hehe

Beautiful piece. You've got a very interesting and lovely technique, I can see it being used to illustrate lyrical retellings of grimms fairytales. I love the colours, especially the shadows around her neck with the blue, simpy beautiful.
