Maria's Description: This started as a study for bigger painting but I kind of like it like this and decided to keep it.

Quite right. It's monumental.
Dear Maria, go on, go on, go on, don't stop. You are on a good way. I know you can do it. It shows great promise.
I am not convinced I can paint yet, but I know I can draw...Thank you for the encouraging my friends. Hanjo, your criticism in private may be offering its first fruit. I am working on it.
Maria & Hanjo... if you find your private critiques bearing fruit, do please consider sharing your experience with others. It would be very interesting to listen to both the teacher and student's view on how the critique is delivered and subsequently perceived.You may also stimulate others to participate in a public forum on your art practice.As you know, the focus of artprocess.net is artist-to-artist dialogue, and I hope we're now beginning to feel less uncomfortable with exposing our artistic selves - for the sake of the communication between peers, and whatever it is we artists insist on, and that we're desperately searching for.
Don't worrry J.P. No one is going to cheet and say all the interesting stuff behind everybody else's back (ha, ha). Private communication between artists is also natural, especially when big attachements are needed. And you are right, this is a place for communication between peers. It is not a school and therefore there is no such thing as "teachers and students".
