Stunning. The blossom looks amazing. I love this opera and this painting from it too :):)

A painting Giacomo Puccini would have greatly appreciated and I really love, as can be testified by the fact that I did a painting ages ago inspired to such a title and opera! Bravissima!

I love your style. I always have a sense of asian theme about your work. (which is why I enjoy it so much.)

Did you know you've got a request to tutorial a background in the Technical forum? :D Seems I'm not the only one impressed with your backgrounds.

Coop, this is beautiful. You certainly have nailed the skin tone. Now, I would like to see something in the upper left corner to balance the figure. Maybe some flowers or Branches, ETC. A great image.

This one is magnificent. I see it as looking at one's reflection in a pond, perhaps the Japanese nature spirit. . . who looks at herself in a placid pond and sees reflected to her not a woman, but a blossoming tree.

I think your handling of color and texture is beautiful as ever. All about opposites. Opposite textures, opposite sides, etc etc. Fascinating, but it's all quite beautiful. A geisha's koan perhaps, Ms Coops. :):):):):)
