She's back for more(blood). I'd like to see the previous version. Will try to dig it up.

Hi Krystall,
I know you have commented on my past work and have always been so kind and complementary, thank you. I have started to paint again but it’s not the same. I have lost some of my motor ability but am now working on something very dear to my heart. Every day in my studio I’ve hit road blocks that I never imagined however not a major problem as I am totally passionate about my current topic and have the drive and patience to work thinks out.
I just viewed you recent work and I’m a bit confused. You acknowledged I think, that you don't like mosquitoes yet you spent time painting one? For me, you wasted some valuable time out of your life to actually paint this subject and then for some reason, asked others artist their thoughts? If you are trying to make some important statement here I’m with you but unfortunately, I missed the point.
My thoughts are of all the important things in your life that interest you and give you joy, why would you ever waste your special tallent on something you care nothing about? I know for myself at this point, without a real passion for the topic, it’s over before ever starting, not going to happen and waste of my precious time.
Just curious and mean no disrespect to you or your work,
Al

I don't like them either! Sure glad they're not that big! :) Personally, I think it's more fun to draw something you don't like, it's more challenging, definitely not waste of time!

Hello Al,

I love to read your comments (always) whether they are written to me or to someone else. I know who you are , that is why I do respect your suggestions and opinions very much.
I know accuracy , beauty of your great works and I am sure that your next one will be wonderful as well. That's fantastic you are painting again. Knowing your hands problem , it must be very hard for you.
Al ,I am very glad you have viewed my recent work. I will try to explain as best as I can why I painted mosquito. Many of my paintings as you know are very emotional, strong, serious and different in subjects. Painting them I feel tired , sometimes frustrated , emotional... To relax myself a little bit I am running away to easier, lighter theme, less important. Usually I paint flowers or even mosquitoes which for some reason are sharing earth with us. As an artist I think , that an old, wrinkled, ugly , sick, homeless .... deserved to be painted as well as pretty , sexy, young.... Do you know what I mean?

I don't like mosquitoes to bit me, especially when I sleep. I hate them but my painted mosquito is very cute, funny and colorful, I think. My grandson loves this painting and actually I painted it for him.

Thanks again for viewing my topic, Al.
All the best

This almost has a Dr. Seuss quality to it. TO be honest it doesn't feel scary or gross. The colors are happy as hell. The image itself is quirky looking. I like the painting but I think you can push it further. Paint it again with a different color scheme. And then again with the body contorted in a different way. If you really want to explore what you don't like about it, I think you should keep going with it.

The vivid, happy colours are a strange choice for this sinister looking fella, but it works. It's almost like you're making fun out of the mosquito as a way of approaching your dislike of it. Maybe you just came up with a new method of curing phobias! :)
