*"Fallen angel" is a street story about some young girl who went down the wrong path in her life. The girl and her shadow are reversed. Thus the reflection in the mirror is what she has become. A shadow of her former self. . . .

    Thought provoking image. The squalor of the room in contrast to the picture against the wall. The picture a longing for a better life, an escape route. Very good.

    it’s like years have passed and she’s still there, in the same hole, in her same hole

    So interesting, so well painted. I love the flattened shadow legs of the real girl. You’ve made the picture-story stark and sad, but there’s so much in your color and attention to detail that still offers hope, still offers life.
