wow. the colours are beautiful the way you put them together, and the eyes are so deep...full of misery and regret...like he/she is looking on the world today, sad and regretful of how they treated it. i dpnt quite like the black in it, it would be improved by erasing a few, but the overall effect is stunning. I like the way it sort of builds up in the middle, makin it look like a rubbish pile, or dripping dirt and sewage. this is very intimidating. I like the reds and greens you used. the shades are good, and they contrast with a good balance. good job.
What do you think?

First of all, I love the concept. Showing how pollution affects humanity by actually using the human face... Wow. And the emotion conveyed in the eyes... I think that the skill of the whole picture resonates from there. I see sadness, I see a kind of forlorn regret that just solidifies the impact of the whole idea. So.

I like how the coloring hints to erosion and covering of the face, or "Earth", especially what I assume is the nose.

I've seen and heard of ideas like this one, yes, but I think it's how well you executed this one that makes it such a gem. I'd love to see follow-ups of the same abstract interpretation, because I'm sure you only get better and better. Speaking of which, I think I'll hit up your gallery now. Needless to say, I'm both impressed and "impacted."

Dear Catherine,

I just completed a fictional novel that deals with the subject of the human disconnect in the modern age of capitalism, materialism and industrialism. I searched thousands of pics, came across yours and found that no other image more beautifully captures the sentiment of my story than your painting. I'm contacting you now to kindly ask you if you would be willing to allow me to use it for the cover art of my book. I can send you the novel in its entirety, along with a proof of what the finished cover would look. If you agree to let me use this image, I would of course fully accredit you in the preface of the book. My email address is: robertmiljan75@gmail.com. Please send me an email and I'll reply with a copy of the book. 

I hope to hear from you!

Kind regards,

Robert

I really feel like you can see a sort of deep sadness in the eyes. The dark, grimy colors do spell out pollution, but they also remind me of decay, like a zombie. Lovely job.

Digg the drips!! plus the lines & and the translucent aspect of it (watercolour effect). It also seems to be a metaphor for the pollution in our words since the chaos of colours are placed in the mouth area!

It was actually meant to be noise pollution! Everyone just seemed to run with their own interpretation.
