Thanks. An early painting of mine done back in 2000. Completely spontaneous. Nowadays I layout the landscapes in most of my paintings ahead of time using photos as reference to one degree or another, leaving room for some spontaneity in places.
You're simply fantastic..your surreal landscapes are amazing.And I can say the same thing about the Music you listen to.^_^ YES..is one of my favorite Progressive Rock Band of ever..near King Crimson,PFM,Asia,Orme..Steve Howe is one of my favorite Guitarist..he is a genius..
Thanks. This was one of my earliest paintings. It was fun to do. Sometimes I can get rather bogged down with some of my spontaneously created paintings because I'm not sure in what direction to take the image. This is one reason why I tend to use photos to go by more in my later work. With "Fountainhead" though, everything just seemed to fall into place.
Thank you. It's funny. I remember when I finished it back in May,2000 I felt satisfied with the painting but not in a real emotional way.I even remember thinking to myself at the time, "why don't I feel more happy about how it came out?" Sometimes I wish that I could see my art as others do.
Stunning and imaginative imagery! Really beautiful, and I love that I can see hands and legs and bits and pieces in there, whether or not they were intentional - in that way it's got that Dali landscape quality, but I agree with the mention of Bosch. Both great influences to me too The greens here are really warm, and I think the little parts of purple/red/yellow etc really lift the whole painting. I'd live here
Thank you. When I draw or paint 'biomorphically' (spontaneously created organic imagery), they often unintentionally resemble faces, various body parts or animals. I never consciously try to do this except maybe once in a great while. I'm glad that you like my painting.
Thank you. This is one of my first paintings that I did (April, 2000) when I first started to seriously paint. I never received much of a reaction to it though. In fact, I just decided at the last minute to dig. photograph it to be included in my files along with my more recent work. I'm glad I did though, considering the positive response that I've received from it. Here in the Tampa Bay area galleries tend to lean toward one extreme or the other: elitist, avant-garde galleries or galleries that cater to tourists and feature quaint seascapes.
At first the concept remind me of the center peice of "The Garden of Early Delight" from Bosch ! And I think you did a great job creating this surreal/fantastic environement... the line work is well done and the backgronda and sky are well executed to !!!
