If this is a self-portrait, you keep a very good shape, considering your recent motherhood...

Just joking. Please, forgive me.

The problem is, I don't know what to say just now. I'm just FEELING things, and I can`t use my rational criticism properly. I love all this paintings. So feminine, and so powerful at the same time. Beatiful and expressive.

The black lines drawing the body around and getting united up in the hair... The gorgeous posture of the whole body, worthy of a Modigliani's model... The anonymous face, where we can imagine numerous different faces and recognize even familiar women... The strange but harmonious and touching mixing of colours...

I'd like to be present when you create works beyond time, like this. A woman, who can be from any space and time. She has no nationality, no culture, no traditions this time. She's just a human being in front of an artist depicting her. She could be even a prehistoric lady, and this could be a portrait inside a cave. It would be much better than arrowed boards, mammoths and deers...

Congratulations, Galya. Your STRENGTH is impressive!
