    Dear Pai, Is your style and colors, is a nice harmony in it, the young girl remember me also a ballerina, for all that I like it but I will be glad if you came out with some words about what was your intention to represent.
    Your paintings are the most of the time complex and can be viewed in different ways .
    I don't know if you care or not about people understanding or not exactly what your inspiration was, some artists do some other don't...

    In the case of this painting, the feather are beautiful but they came from a very heavy bird who perhaps had his ancestors who did fly in the dinosaurs time but which actually don't fly, in plus only males have this kind of very bright feathers (like in almost all species) the female don't and you place the feathers in the right place for a bird but tell me how this beautiful girl would fly with the end of his legs or whatever, It don't look to me that the feather are on his arms and she move his arms in the incredible hope to fly without feathers (which are males feathers) ,
    now this is the exact trascription that I am able to see in it,
    I have no idea if is what you intended to do or if eventually is without significance or if I am not able to see what exactly you intented to represent.

    You know that I like your work

    This is beautiful Pai! Like a "flying dream"... one that makes you sad once you wake up and realize you really can't fly. Awesome colors!!!

    Wow, Pai, this is just one beautiful and dreamy-like painting. I love your color technique on the peacock feathers and the beautiful brush strokes on her dress. Creative and a classic.

    Stunning Pai. A beautiful palette of beautifully integrated color, fine, expressive drawing and emotionally powerful. It seems a dream full of hope, aspirations, desire, longing, exuberance and possibility all rolled into one - complex set of emotions ever longing and intent to embrace and experience life. That's my take - and I'm uplifted and feel like I fly high just being with your work.
