I'll admit the message behind this took me a while to decipher, at my first interpretations I thought you were just exploiting the feminine figure and contrasting with some obscure background sort of in a Luis Royoish cliché way, throwing in some environmental theme to spice up some sense of a deeper meaning.

And it was annoying.

It was annoying to see a hot naked chick in a subtle seductive stance, in a picture that appears to be connected with an attempt to raise my awareness of environmental issues.

But after watching the clip in the link I came back and realized the chick blends perfectly with the place.

I disagree on calling our race a "throw-away society" though, because I am aware of the considerable amounts of people that in essence have nothing to do with the chick in the picture.

And I disagree on assuming a pessimistic attitude when our cognitive abilities are 100% functional. Doing so only ensures the possible doom you mention up there...

Ignore the rest of this video and jump to 7:44 [link]

is a fantasy painting that represents our single-use-item-throw-away society.

CLOTHES? WHAT CLOTHES?
I REALLY NEED MORE SLEEP!
CURSE YOU ALARM CLOCK!
WAIT THAT'S MEAN TO THE ALARM CLOCK.
ANYWAY IGNORE THE COMMENT ABOUT CLOTHES AS SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL THAT CLOTHING HER WOULD BE A SIN.

:clap: A very fine sentiment, well expressed. :winner:

I like the colour scheme to this, and the composition is very strong. My compliments on a fine piece.

I JUST LOVE THE INDUSTRIAL ARCHTECTURE AND SOFTNESS OF HER SKIN.

I ALSO FIND HER HAIR AND CLOTHES TO LOOK JUST BEAUTIFUL.

This is no kind of place to frolicking about, naked. I hope, at least she's wearing proper footwear.

I think your speech about "our throw away" plastic society is B.S.
What's your solution? Paperboard use kills trees we are told. Plastics can easily be recycled. Blame the people like yourself. I like some of your art but your politics are naive. You came from Russia?
Go home young lad and solve their problems and then go hide out in gutless, socialist Canada where the specialty is moving terrorists to the US.

amazing how much detail there is to be seen in your work. Just one thing I wonder about: is the woman in the painting part of a photograph, or did you paint her yourself?
Either way, amazing!
