You guys never let me down, thank you for taking the time, I really appreciate your opinion! πŸ™πŸŽ¨β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘


  1. Definitely the last.
    The first two don’t do much for me, but if I had to pick, the second.

    It’s the contrast does it for me. Red and white.

    Bear in mind my eyesight is shite. Seriously shite. This post, I just listened to it rather than using my eyes, to give an idea.

  2. The Rose is very good and has a kind of Jackson Pollock vibe, but my favorite is Playing with Crimson. Its like a Japanese character or a slightly drunk Zen calligraphy. 🎨

  4. πŸ’–ing the deep richness of The Rose. My choice would be The Rose + Playing with Crimson.

    1. Thank you, Rebecca! I’ve had trouble getting into shows at this particular gallery, I’ve been accepted about half of the times I’ve submitted, so I really wanted other opinions before making the choice!😊

  5. For me it’s The Rose and Playing with Crimson!

    I like the circular shape which also lends both fluidity as well a circular motion, a movement to the painting. It also blends the colours.
    The titles go very well with their creations.

    Wishing you the very best!
