Beneath this colourful exterior is much mystery.
We can weave what we wish from this amazing piece of ART.
We can aromatise our senses to overload and still be left wanting for more. I especially like how you have left the outline of pencil and built a collage of flowers and splashes of colour to give her substance. They say that "The eyes are the window to the soul" and her eyes are unlike any I have seen, so much beauty and yet devoid of emotion, letting us believe she is who-ever we want her to be.
The flowers framing her face give her a Spring-like essence, and I guess that is who she is to me, the giver of Spring, of freshness and vibrance of colour, the scent of lillies and tangerine, of blue skies and cool mid-afternoon breezes, I can smell it now, the subtle aroma of life. To think that this magnificent work has made me feel all this...........
That is the beauty of art and it takes a true artist such as yourself and your collaborator <img class="avatar" src="…" alt=":iconsnowmask:" title="snowmask"/> to be able to transform a painting into inspiration to a poet like myself.
Thank you both for this wonderful journey of my senses.........

This is so amazing, it reminds me of all the feminine scents<img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)" /> I love indian color vibes in it, the artistic brushes on her face makes it looks like acient stone figure aged by rain and winds means past, and flowers means now, and her looks are so hunting, tht makes this goddess of time<img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)" /> , also it reminds me of sunset on the sea, purple colors are the mysterious lighting and golden ones are the fading sunshine, the whole work is a bit sad theme, but the golden colors and romanitc purple, also the flowers makes it full of hope<img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)" />

Powerful in color, delicate in line, and fluid to the movement of the eye. This piece is a tribute to the subconscious making memories from the senses. Having this be inspired by a scent is so appropriate, because visually if feels like a memory. Actually, this piece is so distinct, when I fist saw it I was taken to a favorite memory. When I was little we visited Avignon, France in the early summer. There were smells of flowers, cotton candy, and coffee wafting in the chilly air with the shining mirrors of the wooden carousel flickering back the blooming flowers and leaves of trees. This piece feels like that moment. Powerful, memorable, haunting, just as a scent should be, captured in visual piece. Bravo.

Your work was stolen - [link]

Art4Love is selling it for $229 and the thief, Chad Love Lieberman, is claiming it as his own work. He is involved in a massive theft of a lot of dA submissions. Here is an article that might help [link]

This is just beautiful your use of color is like a manged explosion on a canvas. I really see your hard work here, you both did a fantastic job. She appears to be innocent yet wise and withdrawn. Again wow you deserve all these page views.

it's a rarity to see gallery mods with actual talent and a feast for the eyes in their accounts. what a blessing. i wish i were capable of even a fraction of this.
buying a snotty camera is nothing. and it goes to show that nothing can buy you talent.
