    Description

    Receiving is much harder than giving. We have invented a framework about giving that appoints it value. Giving it is valuable; it is what a good person does. Each time I give something, I feel the built-in rewards of the framework affirm, “You are good person.” This brings a sense of confidence and control. Nobody says this about receiving. Even the value placed on giving throws a shadow onto receiving, as if giving is superior. Not only does this make receiving challenging, it makes it inferior. To receive, I have to make myself soft and vulnerable. Receiving is to allow oneself to be penetrated, and this is scary.

    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.
