her beauty rests not with the sight of her flesh....
for upon that gaze one turns to stone...her tears
are for embraces lost, through jealousy and spiteful curse...that made way for her tragic loss...

I love this so much!!! Do you sell your prints on your own, like artist to artist, or only here on DA? I would love to purchase a print of this 11x12...or if you swap prints, maybe we can trade, if you like something of mine that is..let me know!! This is wonderful, just my style,,,i have the perfect frame for it!!!!! you are brilliant!

Hi no worries with the English, i understood just fine. Well if it is to much of a pain i understand. I just hate to buy prints here on da, if the artist can benefit from it ...between artist to artist. I usually just print mine at home on printer onto photo paper or regular paper. Let me know what you think. Thanks for considering it. Hope to hear from you soon.

But...you mean you want buy a print directly from me?It will be an honour but I don't really how i could sell it O_O I'm not good to give a price to my work...I have a printer so...I don't know (maybe I'm silly but i really don't know what to do in that situation XD)

Well instead maybe we could swap prints?! I will send you a print of one of mine you like..and you can send me one of yours..easier that way. I love to trade with other fellow artists..nice to have the love of art in common and share. Let me know if there is anything of mine you like and i will send to you. Just standard sizes..8x10 or 11x12.
