Painter Akzhana Abdalieva

When the internet first started, and everyone got e-mail, there were lots and lots of junk messages that came through - chain letters and weird "Irish luck" notes and dorky jokes, all that sort of thing.

Thankfully, now that everyone's settled down a bit, this happens less and less. But weird stuff - especially Powerpoint slides set to music - still appears from time to time.

I got one such e-mail the other day, and almost deleted it without looking.

It's a good thing I decided to give the slides a chance! I've just discovered a wonderful artist from Kazakhstan, Akzhana Abdalieva. I love these paintings especially, because the tone and imagery reminds me of Ayten and Devran from my story Rome, Rhymes and Risk:

Cool pics! Thanks for sharing.

Yea, I usually delete those emails without looking too. Though the ones I get usually have "blond joke" somewhere in the title. Which is funny, cause I'm not blond.

I had to go check out the website. She's got some nice paintings. Of course, I couldn't read anything but I figured out how to navigate to get to the prints :)

Thanks for sharing. Sure she'll get a kick out of seeing a jump in US viewership if she tracks site hits.

Oh, I do like the artwork. I get those types of emails as well. And normally, I delete. Maybe I should check once and awhile.

I'm glad you all liked her as well!

You're not far off, Joshua - there were many other paintings in the email and a few of those reminded me of Klimt as well.
