How could these be so beautiful,colors just jump out from the painting. As they were hiding in other paintings and show themselves only in your artwork.

Hi, I would just like to let you know I was looking up the painting "Starry Night" by Van Gogh, and came across your work. I am in the beginning of art school and you where the first artist I wrote about in a class for visual arts. I think your work is captivating, your use of such vibrant colors, and ability to create movement and reflection are really beautiful. I enjoyed going through your work and writing about you and your pieces. I hope one day to own my own. Today is my last day of the class; we have to go back to the artist we talked about in week 1 and do another paper on their work. I am choosing When Dreams Come True to right about. I feel so moved by your work and feel it’s only right that you know your influence on others. You have inspired me and I would like to thank you!

This is perhaps my favorite of your paintings that I've seen thus far. I would even go so far as to say one of my favorite works here on the entirety of deviantART! Truly amazing. :love:

I've searched through a lot of art trying to find something this amazing. Really, everything about this picture is spectacular. The bright colours look amazing, and I am so impressed that this was done without a paintbrush!

Hi! I'm Marina, and I am a student of fine arts.
Normally don't like modern paintersv (with the exception of the Impressionist artists, but they are died); and has been to see your works and fall in love. :+favlove:
Just say that as a student of Fine Arts, I deeply admire your work.

Sorry for my english, i'm spanish!!

I love to paint too and I add waaaaay too many colors for my teacher's liking but I adore this. Do you go to these places? Are they pictures? I could browse through these for a while. I will probably make one of these my wallpaper. All credit to you of course. How big is the canvas you worked on? I am sorry for my monologue :]
