    Wow. That was a LOT of work. I'm 'digging' your use of colors.

    One of the advantages of being a ditch digger, I suppose, is that the low angle enhances the allure of dresses. Seems like a metaphor for the voyeurism of the internet and the barrier between what is being seen and that it is in a different world. Maybe it's watching the promise like a social instruction for participating in society if you play the game right, so keep working hard and this could be you. Or it could be that if you're young and pretty and wealthy, all good things come to you. Otherwise you're life will be toil.

    There's an uncomfortable tension here, as permeates most of your work. Interesting voice you have. I can often look at your work and my stomach goes into knots. But of all the people who post in ArtRage, I would have to say you are one of the most consistent and distinctly stylistic. And that's something many artists seek out, from one quick look your style is so identifiable, that one knows at a glance it's yours.

    Well done!

    The digger seems more envious than appreciative of the wonderful view he's enjoying. Not a wise attitude though because, as we say, more or less, "those who appreciate what they get, take delight". LOL Obviously I presume she's not the digger's fiancée ....

    I really like the fanciful and surreal elements of this as well as the story. A very vibrant interesting piece!

    And the Worker vs. Bourgeoisie kind of thing.
