I love the style of expressing your outwork. Especially your choice of colors and the way you portray, I think you have a unique style that will inspired many artist. All of your artworks is expressive just like reading a story. Every color you put in your artwork has a role and the white background, I think in your style it is an active element not passive. You're great, you are consistent in every artwork you made. Your style is always there but you have always new ideas. I don't know if you are born with that talent or by practice only, but the important there is you amaze me.

This piece is beautiful hands down it can make your eyes water. The highlights on the nose are key here. I have seen countless pieces of crying girls but the majority only have the eyes highlighted to make them appear to be wet. The line defining the neck however appears to be quite curved for the position the head is in. I also think the right eye (from viewer's perspective) would look a little better with more definition in the upper lid and tear duct area. The use of color is not only genius but not obnoxious or cliche. The colored tears introduce a different plane that is really interesting since they don't always follow the form of the face but I would appreciate to see what it would look like to have them follow the form.

Well, let's see. The artist, central and anchored to the bottom of the image, the pillar supporting the whole of her creation. The work is behind you, a thing finished, by it's position it is holding you up as well. But then, perhaps it only a frame, drawing the eye to the subject. The art before you does not present itself directly. You look away. Down. The thing you pursue skirts the edges of your path. Yet you seem content if slightly mournful waiting for it. As a controlling device the image, while stark, effectively draws the viewer to focus almost entirely on you. The eye flits away to examine the surrounding images only briefly, darting back to you repeatedly, looking for the connection. We, the viewers, imbue you with the bits of emotion we gather from the surrounding images, wondering if we've gotten it right.

In my humble opinion, an effective image, since you asked.

This piece has so much beauty as an individual, objective work. But from a view of someone who knows your work well, this piece has so much more depth and effect.

Many of your pieces are surreal, and individually strong. The soft hues and tones displace many of them from reality through a fourth wall device. To do something as radical to your stigma as removing them from surrealism and into a tangible thought creates a completely new perspective. "Agnes the artist" and the independence of your surreal work has always been the fourth wall barrier. This composition, by device of your organic presence, presents you as the human being; a commanding and inspiring harbinger of your prefaced reputation.

What I mostly like about this photograph is that we see a piece of you, the artist portrayed in real life.

The image gives the impression that you express deeper thoughts, emotions and feelings. The white background blends well with the concept and your definitely brought to the front. The red hair and lips makes people focus on your face which is great and the fact that you look away from the camera doesn't draw too much attention.

Overall I would have brought out the paintings a little more by using some of your art a bit darker in colour. I believe the composition is perfect.

I like the way that, to me at least, this seems to be a lot about eyes. I noticed that several of these paintings are arranged so that an eye is poking out from behind something else. Even the two behind you. it gives an interesting compliment to your pose. Maybe in some way you are unsure about your paintings, so they are peeping out - to see if it is safe to show themselves?

It is interesting too that you seem to almost mirror your painted style in the respect that some lines are clean and that some are stained, untidy. That you pictured here as being clean yet your clothes are not. It works well, within this photograph and within your work.

My suggestion would be to make the camera angle lower - even on the floor - so as to make you and your art seem more dominant. It would change the mood but would work well.

PS - the white tones in this work well.

The contemplative expression matches perfectly with the tight lines and freely expressed splatters and drips of your creations - not to mention the additional relative splatters displayed on your white gown, which only adds to the effect.

The drooping tangles of your hair are a perfect representation of the drips you display in your artistry.

For this particular photo, I only wish you would have reduced the upper white space and allowed for a complete image of yourself - equal white space above and below - to (I guess) totally encompass you and your life work.

Externally, you are a beautiful woman. I do not know who you are internally except for what you express in your paintings - so I can only assume you are beautiful on the inside as well.

Indeed, I would crop the upper 5th of the image, as well as some off the two sides. I believe this would substantially increase the impact of the image as a photograph.

withen this i find there is a sense of peace and almost dark ponderation.. your face reflects a certain unstillness withen your own mind. and the art mirriors that.
in a way you could almost say that this photo is like a mirrior, of your art reflecting yourself and yourself reflecting your own work.
the drips.. the mixed colors.. the void of white surrounding the image and the work and yourself sejests confution.. sadness.. maybe even a bit of a search for identity..
your vision of course has and always will be profound and haunting while absolutly beautiful. quite like the great masters of the old world
as for originality.. i have seen photography like this before.. but verry rarely or never have i seen the artist reflect and mirrior their work in the same picture.. and i must say it is quite beautiful
your techinique is perfect. its your own style and that is why you have your fame
and as for impact.. while the image is not verry powerful visually compared to some of the other photography on here, it still however carries its own strengh if one reads into it enough

amazing work as always
and am looking forward to your next <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I love this piece. However for a better photographic capture, I would take the camera down closer to the ground. Don't cut off your feet and it will be even better <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> <3 You may want to have the whole thing in focus or you may not, I like it either way. I love that the main color is white and the paint on your coat really completes the image. like how most of the paintings are partially covered by another, it adds to the feel of the image. It's simple but has a huge impact because of how beautiful it is <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I think the painting and the photo are beautiful, but after looking again I agree a change in camera angle could make it more powerful.

I don't normally have a modern artist I genuinely love. You, however, have the most amazing style. I love all the artworks and you are by far the best at watercolor. Seriously, amazing works.
