Lovely, lovely, lovely. Good notes, much originality, very creative and has punch. Spot on with the occasion, Mardi Gras and Pendamic. Colourful and so appealing. Well done.

Awwww Mardi Gras, the colors, costumes, music, food excitement, face painting, jewelry. It's clear, well done and the story behind it is a sign of the times. Praying with you for next year. I like it great painting.

A very pretty painting with wonderful vibrant colors and nicely accomplished details. I especially like the details of her so very expressive eyes and the intentional slight pout she has. Makes her real among the slightly abstract style and background. Well done and pleasing to view!

Nice work Monica. Yes there have been so many things cancelled or modifies due the virus. Hopefully we will get this thing behind us.

Nice work of art here. The colors are just right for the look.

I am wondering if her mouth is just slightly off to the right and not centered under her nose. I am no artist so I may be seeing it wrong. No matter. It is still a great work of art Monica. Keep them coming ~ Steve

The girl is charming. She has painted herself a beautiful mask, but she seems to suffer being alone. The look in her blue eyes and her expression are sad. I enjoy your attention to detail. The colors of you used are harmonic and pleasant to the eyes of the viewers. The tight framing is adequate. The portrait is well composed. The composition is balanced.

Excellent rendition of Mardi Gras festival. Been there many times. I would stay at the Hilton and make the rounds. I especially like the Pete Fountain show at the Hilton. Lots of beads here. Fun time for everyone. Well captured.

Comment from Brenda Curley


Nice creative composition.
Love the festive clothing. The colors of the beads and hat are playful with the abstract affect. And,the eyes are so expressionistic yet lonely looking since she is missing her friends and family. The face is painted well. She is trying to bring some light to a dark time which will end eventually.
We have to believe in good.
Nice work.

I can see the sadness in her eyes at being alone. I like the colors you chose. Good bling and hair. My only suggestion would be to straighten her mouth. It looks pulled to the green side.

This is the safest way to celebrate the Mardi Gras.
Great acrylic painting with such nice colors, details and expression that shows that she is little sad not being able to celebrate in a usual way. Hopefully next year!
