Thank you very much. I wish I had a better photo of it for my gallery and portfolio, but I sold it time ago and the person I sold it to doesn't live close to me and wouldn't you know, every time I am actually in his town, that is when I don't have my camera handy. :)

Yeah I should probably not worry so much about it, it's just the perfectionist in me that it bugs now and again, but the rest of me thinks its not that bad and if its nice enough for someone like you to like it, the perfectionist part of me should just shut up. :)

All artists feel that way, we are all perfectionists but always feel their is something missing in our work. I think you just have to step back and appreciate your own art for just what it is.

I think you're right about artists tending to be perfectionists. I think that is why we tend to be more needy of praise about our work than most people (because behind our own eyes the beauty of what we created is often largely eclipsed by all the imperfections we see when we look at our work) but it is also the thing that pushes us to keep trying and to get better. So it is both curse and blessing. So yeah, you're probably right about all you can do in the end is step back and appreciate your own work for what it is... I just wish it were as easy to do as it is to say.

Thank you so much. I wish the picture of the piece was better, but ironically the bad light flare of the camera actually works with the piece. But anyway, thanks again, I really appreciate your comment.

I had to check and see if this was really a painting or not. That's a compliment by the way haha.

Very well done, I love the dusky rose color and how soft the whole thing looks.
