Kiss In The Park by Leonid Afremov by Leonidafremov
First off, Incredible job with excellent technique. It definitely has a strong romantic sense to it. A couple little things that come to mind when viewing it though: the background coloring is a little confusing to the eye. Clearly there is a backlight of some sort but the array of colors makes it fairly hard to tell if it is lamps, sun shining through trees, etc. Especially with the blue shades in the background, it feels like they could almost be standing in front of a stained glass window rather than a park.
It is also clear that the ground is wet given the reflections it is giving off, but the reflections make less sense because of the background as it is reflecting light sources that don't appear clearly in the background.
As for the two strangers kissing, they look great, the only thing I could think of would be to add a little more definition to the man's face.
Other than that, I would suggest just a little more contrast in the umbrella so it stands out a little more from the background (but not too much).
Again, great job! this is one of my favorites!
Civil War by JozhuaWarren
Civil War
Why? How did this happen?
So much pain, uncertainty...
I haven't even done anything..

Or have I?
Maybe its because of something else;
Something powerful enough to rip me apart,
to incite my heart to rebel against my mind,
to force my mind to shred my heart in its defense.

Why do I let them rage?
Wouldn't it be easier to tip the balance and let one win?
Perhaps shut myself off and let them suffocate.
Surely that would put an end to the pain.

Why do you do this to me?
Why do I do this to you?

Love is sacrifice...
I hope you're worth it.

This was a fairly spontaneous inspiration, and my first one using windows paint. It was once again inspired by a certain unnamed individual

Hands by JozhuaWarren
Hands
It isn't complicated,
It is simply a passionate touch shared by two individuals
It doesn't have to mean anything, though in the moment, it is everything.
It is just hands.

I would like to thank a certain unnamed individual for the inspiration to paint this. This painting doesn't nearly do justice for the emotion and feelings it represents, but perhaps it can serve as a simple reminder for the amazing things that can be shared between two people.

The Fallout of Passion by JozhuaWarren
The Fallout of Passion
What happens after passion has run its course?
As the fires subside and the cold sets in?
The consuming heat replaced,
the empty cold of space,

Fallout falls gently
last remnants take shelter from the cold
Those who wondered
to what the world would end
Fire and Ice.

An incredibly quick doodle for a longfelt inspiration. Inspired by the unnamed, with a special thanks to Mr. Frost for his eloquent phrasing.

Only Miss the Sun When it Starts to Snow... by JozhuaWarren
Only Miss the Sun When it Starts to Snow...
Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast

Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
Cause you loved her too much and you dived too deep

Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only Miss the Sun When it Starts to Snow
Only know you love her when you let her go...

And I let her go.

Once again I would like to thank a certain unnamed individual for being the source of inspiration for my second super mini painting. They'll probably never realize the incredible amount they have taught me.

Here is to forever learning, and never breaking.

(description based on the song "let her go" by passenger)
