all the times I couldn't answer you
(and I couldn't look at you)

I love how emotion-driven your works are, and the strong contrast between the intense detail of the mouth and eyes and the indistinct quality of the hair and background, almost as if she is surrounded by mist. Your technique has an air of careless perfection that is emphasized by the softness of your medium. The cool colors give an almost bruised, vulnerable expression while the value range that is used in the eyes and mouth make a focused centerpiece for the work. The traces of contrasting color keep the piece visually interesting. The subject matter is well-rendered and pleasingly proportioned. To sum up, through amazing vision and technique and use of color and value, you created a beautiful, emotionally impactful work.

*I don't really care for the originality category; no work is really original, and if it was, artists would not like that it didn't learn and borrow from the past.

I logged in to my page and when I saw this I stopped and had to look at it.
First of all it made me want to cry beause I feel what she shows.. at least I
have felt it. Unless a person has experienced that, they cannot relate.
The beauty of this is how exquisite you have captured her.. and it. the thing, the
demon inside and outside... The use of colors and palette are well done, the
technique is great because when it works that is what matters.
I am not a technical artist... I am self taught.. but studied abit later..
Form and function... color and mood, light and use of it.. all are good..
Excellent piece.

I love the detail you put on the mouth and her eyes, especially that little wrinkle/fold under her left eye.
(well, my left, her right)

Tutta la tua galleria è splendida, sei un'artista questo mi ha colpita in maniera particolare, nonostante nella tua galleria ci siano ritratti più colorati, più complessi. 
Non saprei bene direi il perché, ma ha qualcosa che mi cattura, uno sguardo che mi spinge  a chiedermi cosa ci sia dietro...

E' davvero bellissimo. Ti faccio i miei complimenti ^^

Dear Agnes,
I have written you a question on Youtube regarding one of your Drip Painting videos. Please enlighten me as the type of canvas that you used. I ask this because whenever I attempt to smudge paint, this process consistently reveals the texture of the canvas and not a smooth surface finish that you gracefully demonstrate using Enamel Paint.

Kind regards,
Kit (Youtube post is also 27th of Jan 2014)
