VISION: I gave 4.5 stars because I think, even though this is a sublime drawing, if you had drawn a background it would be even more impressive. Moreover, the color and finish are almost perfect.

ORIGINALITY: This is a pretty impressive painting but you have done much more original ones, but somehow I think that originality in this painting is not what you wanted to show in this painting, it is clear that this one is trying to express some feelings.

TECHNIQUE: The technique you used to make this painting is amazing, you perfectly combine watercolors and acrylics to give give the feeling of cold that conveys the character of the painting. The facial features looks completely professional and as I said before, they show me many feelings (cold and repented feels)

IMPACT: The impact of this painting, in my opinion, is what makes it stand out more. These cold waterlines expressing the pain and tears of the character makes you stop and think about some things of the past.

In conclusion: It's a great painting, but maybe it would be more impressive with a background, even if you just give splashes of colors around here and there (although I understand that you want to bring all the attention to the main piece).

Such wonderful realism here, especially in the way her lip is pressed against her hand, but such ephemeral abstraction at the same time. So great.

The colors are what make it. And I love how you managed to make the emotion so clear on her face, it makes me feel like I'm with a friend who needs comfort - it's really human and raw.

This is an amazing piece.  It has touched me more than any of your others. It's what I am trying to overcome on a daily basis.  The face is just, for a lack of better words, beautiful.  I love seeing your progression through the months and admire you as an artist.  Have you tried to put together a series and get into a gallery?  There are many galleries in Seattle that would really dig your pieces.
