Chris Aerfeldt I love your work too!!! Really interesting images and lovely palette
By the way I was in Bruges a couple of weeks ago - my first visit. I am in love with Bruges. What an AMAZING place. The Groeninge Museum is to die for!

Venetia Gazila The project is exceptional because it has a dual perspective, with the positive and negative emotion, with subtraction and realism in the representation and clarity in the message.

Maria Amelia Sanchez Produce escozor al observarla. Notable obra. Arriba se consume y abajo surge la esperanza con la flor del tulipan. Felicitaciones!.

Bernd Hoppe It is a reduced, but great staging. An image that doesn't let me go. There are some secrets in this picture, in the view of the child. I'll see it more often, very good work, Karien!

karien deroo thanks Lia!!
I had a very nice mail from saatchi that I am placed second in Showdown, my artwork will go on to be displayed at the Saatchi Gallery in London, and a Saatchi Online staff member will be in touch with me shortly to discuss my prize.
So great I thought!!
but when I looked at the results of the showdown here on the site, I saw 2 different names, not my name or my work.
So, what do I have to think now???
Is this real or is this a mistake?
