    Combining my love for traditional techniques with my storytelling skills, I’ve composed a self-portrait without myself included. I’ve always enjoyed producing colorful creations (like the crocheted scarf here), as well as surrounding myself with eye-stimulating keepsakes (connected to special memories) to help ease my deeply depressive thoughts. In this painting, I aimed to symbolize maintaining my warmth and hope despite the feeling of unshakable melancholy.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
