[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I spend hours looking at TL photos. Some of them are beautiful, some are creative, some are artistic, some are original, some have all those qualities, but when a photo that has those qualities besides brings out emotions hidden in your soul, I want to paint it. Thanks again, Alec Tempongko (alecnorman) for letting me paint your photo name "Longing".

Hi Maria :),
You are really good painter.I like you painting very much.Nice POV and nice colour.I will put this one in my favourites and in collection folder.I hope you don't mind.
TFS and Best Regards :)

Hi Maria,

Great artwork. You certainly did justice to my image. Well done.


Wow, Maria this is wonderful! And both a great tribute to photography AND to painting and your own art! You know an artist when s/he is inspired by things that touch her/his soul, and you've done a great job of showing that. You've really captured the boy's expression in the painting and I love the smooth contrasts and gradients in the skin, cloth, and barbed wire. Everything is unified. Good job imitating the type and direction of the lighting in the photograph too. Great to share this!

Sorry but i can only see your great talent on this one.....The light, the tones,the feeling ....
I am really impressed by your art.....Are you proffessional painter?
How many hours for a jewel like this one?

Saludos María

Very nice Maria! as Alec said, you did justice to his image.
Nicely Done. Tfs


Ola Maria !

I missed this one ! Impressive work ! Alec must be proud of this great tribute. And this little kid would certainly like to see it too !

Bravo! Hats off to your art. You are indeed a very talented lady.

I am happy that you kept yourself a bit more in this one. Next time perhaps we will see you entirely (^_*).


Very beautiful paint, beautiful portrait, beautiful light and colors!!!




This is awesome. You're so good in painting too.
The photo seems to be nice but your painting is never the less.

Very very good job. The expression, motive and colours are outstanding.

Would like to watch an exhibition of yours.

I like it:)

Realmente has hecho algo grande de una imagen ya de por sí impactante.
Buenos detalles y delicada iluminación María.
Un cordial saludo, JL.

Hola Maria, que interesante lo que tu haces, te felicito y admiro, yo tambien me paso horas viendo algunas fotos en TL, TN o incluso TE, y mis ojos y mente han viajado a otras dimensiones....alguna vez he pensado en la impresion de mis fotos en un tamaño mayor al que siempre utilizo que es de 8 x 10 pero esto que tu haces me ha impactado, es fascinante la manera en que logras maximizar y acentuar los detalles de las fotos, ..cuanto tiempo te llevo pintar esta foto?. Saludos Cordiales desde Tabasco. *Ninfa Urania*

Hi Maria! You're really very talented. Very few TL members could transform a picture into a painting. It's wonderful. TFS,
Freddie :)

wow this is hug painting.
really good job

Absolutley stunning. Your a very talented artist. This brings a new dimension to TL that I have never even thought about. As a rarity, I can't critique the photo because the astounding artwork that you have created outweighs the photographic values of this image. Very well done!
