You are so so so amazingly magical in your capabilities as an artist. I am sure that you have worked hard and been so diligent with your practice, and I must tell you that it really shows. I am so impressed. And I love the subject matter that you choose to paint as well. It's glorious! What is your favorite medium to use? Preferred brush fiber?

So wonderful to discover your work is here on dA too, Donato!  We me met at IlluXcon a few years back and you gave me feedback on my Kushiel's Dart piece.  It helped greatly!  I look forward to keeping up with your work here.
