Eg Elska Thig by Ausila Eg Elska Thig by Ausila
The Icelandic for "I love you." (At least it would be if DA would allow me to use the proper characters... this approximation will do) Icelandic in my opinion is among the loveliest of languages today.

Nice hyperrealistic stuff... well, atleast the lights are stunningly real.
Painting itself goes beyond my understanding.

the islandic word "eg elska thig" is close to the norweegian "jeg elsker deg" who means the same thing. island has probably the worlds most non-changed language in all those thousands of years. we norweegians spoke the same language under the viking-periode, but we change our language alot through the years.

anyway, great picture, truly impressive:)

I've got a big book of Icelandic grammar sitting in my bathroom. The continental Nordic languages changed for a reason: Old Norse was HARD!!!

Þú vannst stóra vinninginn :)

I like the upper pic from these three most, it has the best composition. The middle one is too symetric for my taste and the lowest one, I would allow there more white space in front of the mouth, so that it can breath (the picture I mean).
All in all, a nice series, also with the other mouth pics.
