Artist Comment

Acrylic on canvas. 20 in X 28 in. 2005. NFS.

A rendition of a photo which I thought was rather sad, of a girl dressed in red. This piece attempts to have some of the qualities of ukiyo-e. It's something I started a long time ago, and it sat there unfinished until just recently. I finally got the urge to complete this piece and I'm happy with the result.

I feel that these pictures of my paintings loose a great deal of the essence of the actual piece. I wish that you could see the original, but alas this is the best we can do for now.

    Hey mentis! Long time no see, sorry I've been so busy. Wow - awesome work! It's really hard to work with natural media, but you did an excellent job! *bows before talent* I love the expression and color choices - it makes a wonderful composition. Keep up the great works!

    The girl looks like Utada Hikaru in my opinion.

    I think this painting looks interesting,
    Really flat , remind me of picasso's work s ^_^
    Nice details on the hair , i think it looks really nice , it kinda give the char a stronger expression somehow >.>
    Well anyway, It's a nice painting ^_^

    Thank you for your kind response, friends. I have uploaded a slightly higher quality picture of her, though you may not be able to tell. The colors are more accurate now, however.
