Hi Mike,

This is a great painting! It shows contrast but even more. I can see the strong hands in your painting as a gentle and delicate like this butterfly.
Butterfly looks like a real one. Fantastic work M! You are a great artist!
Best wishes to you too and your family.

Mike, so glad you went with aged hands as opposed to the usual young female hands. It makes it so much stronger and more real. Very touching.
All the best to you too in the new year!

I like the somber colors in this painting. Nice details!
Well, why are we here if not to create?

Way to go with the contrasts: strength vs fragility; neutral hands vs colourful splendour. The hands do well to frame the butterfly and I also like the details of them. This is a very strong piece of work.

I love this so much. Great work. I find it very inspiring, not only as an art piece but as a view on the world. Sounds cheesy but it makes me feel good.

thanks
