Something somewhat more linear in terms of defining forms. Was done around Christmas of last year, I think. Oil on paper, about 22x17.

I stare at her and imagine polynesian shores at her shoulder with such Gaugin colors. Simply lovely.

I like how you have contained her. Beginning with the red line, it makes the eye travel across to the other side.

So sad and pensive; reminds me of a story I read long ago about hope reaching its fingers through an iris window of soul.

Seeing your earlier things enables us to see just how far you've evolved. It's a wonderful little walk along a path of your life.

So this is the beginning? The epicenter of the explosion of personal growth? Yes, I believe I feel the ground quaking.

Beautiful! The two leafed trees appear as fans removed that once covered her breast...and the staggered red line invites your eye through right to left...a different direction.

i like the design of the peice, looks well thought out and i also thought of gaugin when i first saw it.

I like the mood and her face very much.

I think that the soil on the lower left looks a bit floating, especially since you used heavy orange in the sky. I would darken the ground up to give it more solidity, some brown or red/orange there.

Ladies and gents;
Thank you so much for looking and commenting. I'll try to mend whatever may require mending.

Just lovely. Love it. Hope is in your subtle use of colors, in the cool loving acknowledgment of female, body and nature.
