Wow! The detail on the Mandela is amazing and so beautiful. This is such a unique painting ... I love the way the sexual energy is both intensely pure as well as subtlely proud at the same time. You definitely bring spiritual enlightenment thru in your work. Please seriously think of doing an oracle deck, as I suggested in a previous critique. I think your work goes a long way to re-instating women as objects of beauty rather than objects of lust. It is extremely hard to portray nude women carrying a spiritual spark of energy, yet you achieve this effortlessly.

I love the combination of the old art style (the mandala) and the new one (the photoreal illustration). It is a wonderful composition!

I love the woman's upward gaze, and her strong yet casual pose. She's beautiful.

I would really like to know if you paint using a reference, or maybe you hire models to pose in a studio for you?
I dream to reach your level of skills one day...
my best wishes to you!

I showed it to a living buddha and he asked me why I didn't paint a "大裸体" [fully nude] figure, like the Tara figures in Buddhist iconography. I had to admit to him that he may have overcome all his inhibitions, but I was still too attached to the world to overcome my own!

Out of curiosity, are you working towards overcoming those inhibitions, or accepting them as a part of the person you are? I'm intruigued to know, if you do not mind sharing. ^_^

I strive to overcome them every day. It's a struggle. I was raised to be determined, idealistic, and self-sacrificing. I spent fourteen years in the Navy, though much of that time as an operating room nurse and a magazine editor. It has served me well, but now I am learning to relax, to take things as they come, to let go. Otherwise I can't sleep at night and drive everyones else around me crazy. Plus I don't get any work done if I don't rest properly. As for inhibitions in my subject matter, I have to say I just paint the world as I see it, and I like to surround myself with beauty. I've seen some ugly things in the past, and I don't feel any need to bring them into my art. The sort of sexual energy that you see in this painting is a life force, the power of raging hormones, but also the divine urge to create, to nourish, to be fecund, to perpetuate. All part of what it means to be a woman!
