one



There are so many aspects of this pose and composition that I like. I hope you do too. A lot of people keep asking me if I painted a cancer patient. If that's what you see in a woman with a shaved head then that is totally ok. If that can be inspiring to someone who has battled or dealt with cancer in some way then that is even better. That was not my intention initially. In this case the shape of the cranium without hair is just beautiful to me.

This is just beautiful, I love it. And I agree with you, I see beauty and indeed boldness in this not cancer. It's just stunning...

Beautiful! Love the emotion and "airy nature" of it! Has a similar feeling I tried to capture in the last piece I did, but much different image.

Beautifully done. The clothes and shaved head feel more like a dancing inversion of the (male) Buddhist monk to me...

Love this one, Justin. I see a woman who is free to be herself and so comfortable in her own skin. Love the palette too. You amaze me Justin. You are just getting better and better, if that's possible.
