Esther , Timothy , Ed , Artloft & Charlie your all so so very kind ...Special thanks Paul

I felt like this over my vacation. I slept on a 'down pillow' in the hotel room. Oh my gosh!!! watery eyes, runny nose coughing and more!!!!

I love your use of color and negative space... you have such a gift.

no words can express what youve created here paul.violence against women is so swept under the carpet,tolerated or explained away far too often,and the worst is when they blame the woman herself.her eyes show the terror hurt and sadness so well paul,a very meaningful important work this is:) l/f

I normally abhor images of violence. I've seen enough pain in my life to want to crawl into a hole. Regardless, this image captures the hell I've endured, and the spirit of survival and hope. Bravo! I'll be buying one soon.

Paul, this is truly a disturbing yet wonderful watercolor. Well done! f + l.

Wonderful work Paul...

Eyes say it all.... !

Surbhi your so so kind my friend , regards Paul

Complimenti sei davvero bravissimo.

Paul Lovering replied:

A special thank you Mario

I've got sour grapes. This should have taken the Mouses' 1st place. This painting has raw emotions, not contrieved ones.It radiates gut wrenching horror or terror or sorrow or all of these qualities.Pain is running through the viens of this person.And those screeming eyes.With out a doubt this is not a fluff for a house wall but a statement for society and a place of prominence on a museum wall.One of your best.

Paul Lovering replied:

Each line expresses another quality of her being and her person, from the noble line of the chin, to the emotion charged eyes.I appreciate your gift of seeing beneath the surface and also what's right in front on one's eyes but usually missed. v f
