    It started with a desire to make something with a dystopian/futuristic vibe while not being completely obvious about it. I wanted to create some sort of toxic world where you have to wear a gas mask to even go outside. It may not be obvious that this place has environmental dangers...but the girl can feel her throat tighten without the mask. She can feel the sun burn within seconds if the umbrella is lowered. She is a bit rebellious and naive and doesn't like to cover her entire body even though she knows the dangers. The outside world is potentially deadly...but it makes her feel alive.

    Beautifully rendered and interesting. The painting makes me stop and really look at all the choices the artist made. Quite a beauty of a piece.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!


    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
