    Oh, Anja.....your work always makes me :sigh: :lovey: They are all beautiful!

    For the wedding gift - #1! :cheer: It is a wonderful portrait of the two of them. Milena is a beautiful girl.

    You did an amazing job. They would be happy with any of them, I'm sure. :)

    thank you, terri-:)))
    your opinion is always very important for me, really..

    here's another one of Milena , from the same frame as the previous one, just a bit 'lighter'....im not happy with this one though.....i have feeling that somethings wrong with it, just cant find what it is......

    ..even though a bit of kitsch was intended here (some of you prolly know that im a kitsch fan, he he he) am still not sure if the thin line (of kitsch) was crossed here or not....what do you think? (im opened for critique, i have really tough skin, he he)

    thanks!

    Can you explain what it is you mean by "kitsch"? I don't do this process and I don't know the terminology. :)

    So, from my untrained eye - I don't see anything wrong with this one. In fact, it's almost nicer than the darker one up there. :thumbup: You've done a great job with her eyes. I love it!!

    ouch, sorry!-;), ive took the word 'kitsch' from a dictionnary....the polish 'kicz' was translated as 'kitsch' <<the other word for that was 'trash', but i wasnt sure of this one, he he...'cliche', maybe?

    'kitsch' can be very deep term (expression ?) - usually its negative for 'art' things, but taken differently(with a distance kept) can be something really fun....couldnt explain it better-:(...i think i might need some 'english language first aid' from Santino with this one, hmm...Peter?

    I would love to try some of these. :)

    Stunning! Absolutely bloody wonderful as ever! :thumbsup:

    I'd be tempted to give the second as a present. In the first I can see him smiling, but not her. In the second there is a smile just about forming on her face. :lol: Their expressions seem to be a closer match in that one.

    That's.... if you can only give one. :mrgreen:

    And I much prefer the darker one for Milena. I get drawn to her eyes more on that one.

    Thank you, Ksmattfish! thats exactly what ive been talking about-:)


    Littleman - its a print made at the board instead of a regular paper....

    Ferny - i like the darker one more too, he he , but it all depends - some of my friends like the lighter one more....so you never know....thats why ive decided to let Milena decide....she doesnt know it yet, but she'll prolly get all of them, ha ha ha :lol:

    thanks for comments, guys! :hug::

    Wow bella these are awesome, Im loving the painted white boards :!: I also love the dark one with the flower colors painted in, she seems to pop out behind the flowers more.

    Way to go :thumbsup:
