I enjoy a lot of your paintings. You use the shower curtain a lot as a prop, and in this case it suits/enhances the mood and intimacy.

Up close it looks impressionist and from a slight distance it looks photorealistic. Very impressive.

A beautiful piece - it made my scalp ripple with pleasure when I viewed it. Brilliant handling of a tough technical problem. :)

beautifully done. i love the layering and you really captured the transparency of the shower curtain while still giving it a presence.
a lot of challenges in this piece and you executed them all so well.

Reminds me of Chuck Close - the thumbnail looked like a photo, upclose it's a bit abstract. Great painting!

You have the most amazing eye for translating reality into paint. I'd never know how to make the shower curtain and water drops look so good and alive :)
