I like that you entangle in your works the ballet delicately .

Really magical. You always select a most enjoyable palette for Your scenes. The dancer here is more merged and three dimensional than ever and her movements more fluid than ever ...

Always an enchanting view dear Katie. I love the idea fairies changing the leaves for autumn, and this is what it reminds me of.:)

This is amazing. People have already said it, but I love how this has a sense of filling the space like flora. Graphically speaking the way you have integrated this figure with the environment really sews it all up very neatly -- that they are creatures of the same world. The brilliantly controlled color scheme enhances that cohesion.

Not to go for a cliche too readily, but I think of some of the creatures of forest enchantment who are sometimes depicted with leaves as part of their garment. This feels like that, even though she is not attired visibly in that way. But she feels like she is wearing the essence of the forest.

Also the way you did the leaves and such in a broken way really lends a sort of transparent or translucent feel, as if looking past what we normally see into an enchanted world.

Very fine work, Ms Coops. Certainly one of the most accomplished of your paintings pushing in on Mastery because I don't see one stroke that could change plus or minus without lessening it. IMHO anyway.
