Dynamic composition, masterful technique, and compelling colors. Though, I think my favorite thing about it is the mystery.

You're most welcome! I meant everything I said :D

By the way, did you happen to listen to music while you were painting this picture? It's just that it really looks so "rhythmic". I can't help but ask :)

:hug: Music is always saturating my work over here-- with this painting in particular, it was both music and memories of a trip I made to Russia-- I met the subject of this painting on the way there-- some really good memories, and lots of great music...

Awww RUSSIA must be an enchanting place! :love: How wonderful it is to be able to translate one's experience into a picture, and not just a mere photograph - a painting! :w00t:

:hug: I wish I could travel once a year-- it's extremely good for people to go where the language and architecture are completely different from where they grew up-- it opens up your eyes and keeps you WIDE awake in a good way!

Yes, me too :bounce:! My grandfather who was an anthropologist always told me that travel teaches more than school. It's just sad that he passed away before I was old enough to go on any of his trips :(.

I enjoy looking at photos of him from wherever. Maybe one day I can be as well-traveled :)

I think so much of any kind of endeavor like that starts out with the simple DESIRE to do it; I bet you'll be a world traveler like your grandfather... :nod:
