EXPERIENCE
I see two hands connected at the fingertips sharing the same ring and two white roses; one wrapped around each hand with thorns drawing blood. There is an important, loving connection between two people here.

ELEMENTS
The hands are very well done. In particular, the thumb on the top hand shows a good grasp of foreshortening where you create the perception of depth. The proportions of the fingers are generally good as well. The line work on the rose bud to the right of the bottom hand is well done.

The one area I would look at for improvement is the vines. They don't look like they are wrapping around the hands. If you look at the edge of the wrist, you should see both the top of the vine and then a bottom portion where it begins to wrap around the other side. As it is, it looks like pieces of the vine sitting on top of the hand. As well, maybe you don't need the vines on the top fingers of the bottom hand. Maybe fewer wrap arounds with slightly more detail in the vines themselves could leave a bigger impact.

The use of light is very well done. It is clearly coming in from the left, leaving the right hand side of both hands in the shadows. Within each flower you can also see the shape of the buds as the shadows from the folds of the petals help define the structure of the flower.

EVALUATION
I think I can see a clear idea of what you were trying to express which is why I gave vision the highest mark. Your technique is solid and it would be nice to see a broader range of subjects in your gallery. You definitely have the talent. I hope to see more pieces from you in the future.

It's beautiful, but I'd say that the vines look more like they are on top of the hands other than wrapping them.

Oh wow, this is so beautiful <3 I love how even though the rose is holding them together, it is also harming them as well ^^ Great piece overall :D

Wirklich ein tolles Bild - technisch und auch von der Symbolik her.
Rosen haben halt immer auch Dornen.
