The colours are lovely and very desert-like. This is now one of my favourite pieces of yours. Your painting style is so smooth and soft. I like it very much.

thanks. I hope my every work to be my best work, so I'll keep improving :D I honestly strive for that - I'm trying to get into progressively more complicated compositions. :) Thanks!!

a prophet can mean many things. A free thinker is what it means at its very basis, someone with new theories, wanting to share them.

I'm not quite certain what message you're trying to put across with this painting, unless it's a criticism of the patriarchal system imposed by the church.

Aside from that, it is a great piece. A lovely, almost cartoony style that still seems lifelike, filled with lovely colours and shapes.

Great work, as always.

its not a criticism of the church, its a personal little message about hehe.. well I think its personal. So it should be to you what I imagined it would be to anyone who sees it - a mystery. I wanted to evoke the same mystery as those jacob and the angel paintings, a feeling of something spiritual. That's all you need to know, the rest is up to you :)
