I have been trying to think of something less inane to say than "I really like this!" This is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing both this detail and the gallery shot.

This painting immediately caught my eye. I love the use of colour in this painting and how it relates to the emotion expressed by the person. Especially the fiery orange forms a nice contrast with the dark blue.

Very emotive, and quite outside your usual theme.
