Very nice! You know, the little box of matches made me think of Andersen's story even before I read the description. Poor kid must be very cold what with the clothes She (He?)'s got on.

Agreed! I would much rather be a little on the warm side than on the cold side!

eep I don't have time to comment on everything so I jsut picked my favorite. Yes this is so full of emotion I love it. It is so revealing in a spiritual way.....kind of like defeat. Or atleast that is how I feel about cold when it becomes winter. The colours are awesome and if this was done in oil paints i aplaude you...I can never get the blending quite right on them. But yes I wish I could hug her, she looks very sad and such. Keep on doing your great art.
