1: Your art is meaningless without a title
2: You need a story to define you art
3: You have to tell people what your art is of
4: If Marcel Duchamp is one of your influences
5: You never completed a painting
6: You've never painted
7: You have never took a course in art
8: If you JUST do photography
9: If you never fill up a canvas, or piece of paper when drawing
10: If your best painting or drawing is abstract

Ahahahahahahaha! This is hilarious.

" 6: You've never painted " Oh? So this means that all of those ridiculously good artists who draw hyperrealism with only a pencil aren't artists?

And about number 10, you know what I'm lazy and this is far too hilarious. hahaha

Ignore what I said about your painting. I've been looking at it more and more and I fucking love it. It's definitely my favorite of the ones you have so far

I really don't know why people are insulting it either. That and the one with the blue hair shows improvement. But dude, you need to think about my advice with the mediums to mix with your paint. And your strongest paintings are definitely your most emotional.

Clever title on aging. As far the message goes you hit the right point; letting the viewer know exactly what you're trying to convey without being too mysterious about it. The composition is strong; good choice with the position of subjects.

I'm feeling that you could have used more colors in this painting considering your style and that you blended just a little too much. With using more color the emotion behind the concept, I feel, would have come off a little stronger. I don't know, I feel like more blues and purples would have really added some more dimension to it. Otherwise, it's pretty tight.
