This is wonderful, I love your style. I also enjoy the fact that you used moths instead of butterflies; I think moths are under appreciated and are under peoples minds when thinking of a form of beauty. You details are amazing, as well as creating contrast within a piece is breathtaking. The image definitely lets you really dive into the piece. Thank you for sharing this.

A great piece. I hope you don't take any offense to this, but it reminds a good bit of alex gray except that it may even be arguably better when compared to something of his ...not as transcendental and a bit more imaginative with some fun in there too.

It's seriously hard to put words to what i want to say about this. It's like the cycle of life and the mechanics of the brain. but really I have no idea of what it's really about.
