  1. Love this piece!! It is beautiful!! I’m curious, a lot of what you did in the beginning, most of it was covered up, except for the silouette and a few other tiny places. So except for the silouette place, was that necessary? Does it add anything? Just curious. Thanks recording it and for sharing this. Love it.

    Love the music too!!

    • Thank you so much for your comment Mignon! Glad you liked it. To answer your question now, I started this piece (and this is happening very often) with an idea in my mind and ended up with a totally different painting. 🙂 Working and seeing the painting evolving makes me to simply change my mind, other ideas spark and so on, but in the end everything makes sense and every single layer you add has it’s own importance, trust me! It’s not a waste of time, effort or money. Without those layers my artwork will be just flat and boring, so yes, they are necessary. And it’s great fun too! 🙂

          Your art speaks to me as it carries a beautiful organic-ness to it.
