Hey there! I absolutely love that! I love the eye, but also love how abstract this picture is. You did a fantastic job on this picture, and you should be very happy with it❤

Thank you very much! I am still unsure what kind of a painter I am, but try to figure it out organically. The mark making us very different than my tightly controlled colored pencils! I'm relieved and flattered that you like this looser abstract approach. Thank you so much again for your comment. ^^

Thank you so much. :heart: I'm uncomfortable with abstraction because I've held fast to realism in my fine art for so long, trying to perform as "professional" as possible in an academic setting which detests anime/manga canon. With these works, I finally was starting to blend my expressions. While I feel that most of the paintings are unsuccessful as works themselves, I think their purpose in allowing me to explore my expressions, application, and content is successful. That was a lot of exposition, but what I'm trying to say is that I'm very glad that you say you like the abstraction. It's a relief. ^^

Well, I would disagree with you, when you say your paintings are unsuccessful, because to be honest with you, I think they are beautiful and interesting to look at. I also think, they have wonderful stories behind and express great meaning, which makes them even better.

Thank you so much. :heart: I'm curious: Do you prefer my art with the expressive stories behind them like this, or the lighter surface-level visually interesting things?

Actually, I love the fact that you have stories behind them. I feel like it brings a whole a lot meaning to them, and really shows, from you, as an artist, how much you care, and how important these pieces are to you. I love your art. I think your pieces are very pretty and unique, and you should be very proud of them.
