Lots of symbolism in this one! Love the tiger to the right...maybe a hint to her character? A lady unafraid to be bold.

It comes across very animated and lively and one can enjoy painted surface and depth all at once simply Marvellous

Very graffiti”esque” which I dig a lot1 Ne of my favourite things to do is watch the trains go by covered in incredible underground art work... Fantastic!

Re: Figurative Abstraction Is Best Art

There is much potential here even if you yourself do not realise or yet see it. Everything is unique from your brush stroke and direction of it to how the light is portrayed..glad you got rid of the words "show" is always better than "tell" in a visual medium such as painting imho ..which was something that struck me about this was that you actualy didn't need the words you were very capable at giving much meaning to this and as a viewer I was able to get some kind of story from it .. it has spirit, it has much movement and rhythm which is a real compliment and if you can get these things in your work early on it shows great promise as an artist the rest is a downhill roll ,..also I pondered on it and it sucked me in rather just wanting to pass by and it just wash over me like a lot of work. I think Bobbybirds has it ...it is very fresh and exciting what you are doing here.

Re: Figurative Abstraction Is Best Art

Thank you so much tidal! I love your comments regarding my work! Yes, the words were not necessary so much! I tried to be free with form and color. It's alive with spirit inside because of this freedom of movement of brush strokes and expression. Thank you so much!
