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.
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. 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!
