  5. Wow...

    I was intrigued when you first made mention of this work, but now I'm even more so. Really, you could have pulled any old thing out of your hat and I'm sure your fans would be pleased, but you pulled out all of the stops here. This is a beautiful, ethereal piece of work. Her eyes suck you right in.

  6. A beautiful piece - I love your use of colour tones. Copic markers are so tricky to use. By the way, any reference here to the book by A. S. Byatt?

    ReplyDelete

  9. I adore your work, hon. I think its really cool that your showing your appreciation to your fans. Your definitely an inspiration and idol to me.

  21. Been fan of yours for some time now, Nati. A silent one, but a fan nevertheless. Thanks for giving us this opportunity to win such a beautiful piece. Please count me in the contest.

    Also, I think you shouldn't be paying for the Shipping cost: that'd be for the winner to pay you. Just my personal opinion.

    Cheers and good luck everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  106. To be honest, I'm not in this for your competition. I just need to say thank you.

    You've provided and given me so much inspiration over the past years.

    I've pulled myself through college and been given an unconditional offer to university thanks to artists like you.

    I've watched your style change, grow and develop as I have done with my own.

    I always anticipate seeing new work from you, it always gives me a little buzz. And if ever i feel like I've got nothing left in my artsy fingers I come to Nati-art and get filled to the brim with new ideas.

    You're an outstanding contribution to the artistic society.

    My favourite piece will still and forever be the draginfly picture from 2003? I think. Gripped ever since.

    Much love.
