Your art is truly amazing! Shadows seem to play an especially important role in it, more or less literally, and I have to say I really love this.
The way everything but flowers is colored like the flower's leaves leaves strong impression (no pun intended...), along with a depressing message. May I ask, if you don't mind answering, is the topic of depression in your painting an expression of some of your feelings, or does it have another reason?

Sorry for asking that, but yeah, I really love abstract art, and the "half abstract" art as here, for example, is an even thinner thing to deal in. It's impressive ^^
I had been /trying/ to paint and draw that for some time now, quite a long time - "trying" because no matter how much I want or express it, I lack basic skill! But that's fixable of course, and I am working on that. Thank you for providing the inspiration to keep me on-course! (Although I would hardly swerve anyway, if I think of it..)
Anyway, maybe I'll get myself to actually post that stuff on dA! See you around I guess.

hi thx so much for your comments
...sorry to disappoint but there was no depression expressed from me in this painting...i love exploring the relationship between form and space, and thought it would be interesting to somehow alter the realization/concept of the form/shadows and negative space of a plant. i used the colour and texture/pattern to try and create depth to the space....but I love it when people have their own interpretations on all of my paintings..it really pleases me to know that you engage with them....Lesley
