Selfportrait is a very difficult exercice. The most difficult probably, I think.
That is why I am not brave enough to try.
Bravo !

I like this very much; your expression is sublime. Do the birds represent anything in particular or are they decoration?

Your paintings are always inspiring and make me happy.

I think you would find that the art of Anna Wili Highfield would make you happy, too.

Just another amazing art from you. This is really amazing but I have just a little suggestion for you that you have to add some expression into face of the portrait.

Geninne, me encanta cómo te ha quedado. Sólo decirte una cosa: me gusta un poco más el dibujo que mostraste al principio, no sé bien por qué, pero creo que tiene una expresión más dulce que el coloreado. En fin, tonterías mías. Los dos son una maravilla, GUAPISIMA!

I don't know why, but your stunning portrait makes me think of St. Francis of Assisi. You have charmed the birds right out of the sky with your talent and grace.
