This is incredible on many levels. One being that, for me, it strongly relates to a short story I wrote, about a girl who is bullied for being different and grows wings to fly away from her bullies. I like that your painting implies a story and your style is very inspiring. The only concrit I have is that the bird doesn't appear to be sitting on the girl's hands naturally but everything else is great about this.

It's pretty rare to see work that looks this alive,
Thanks for the challenge.
(by the way, I had to wonder if you have any Native Indian blood in you).

I'm a friend of David's and a fan of his shots, especially the images of Kierra and D'Arcy, there's so much love behind them. :heart: I saw the other painting you did of the girls, really awesome. This one is great too, she's a fascinating subject isn't she, with those intense eyes of hers. Nicely done!
