love your style. its what im aiming for in my work. Your capture a mood which is both harsh and soft. I find this to be as close as you get to creating a real atmosphere. Great work. Really admire it.

Thank you so much for your comment. I have looked at your amazing gallery...wow. I love the unseen/unknown crayon on duraplex pieces....interesting process. After reading your thought processes too, it looks like we feel the same emotions when observing groups of figures and their emotions and relationships to everything around..
Wish i could come to some of your classes

Your paintings are some of the best work that I've seen on Deviant Art so far, they have so much atmosphere and a strong, painterly quality that I adore. Keep up the great work!

Совсем недавно присылали эту работу, переживали, что не могли найти автора. Было приятно снова увидеть ее на deviantART.

Отсутствие сюжета в данном случае говорит о гораздо большем, чем если бы на холсте развернулась целая драма. Никакого действия, полное отсутствие цвета, никакого обнадеживающего источника света, ни одного лица... ровным счетом ничего - и в этом вся суть. Настоящий шедевр.

Wow this is powerful... I notice that sometimes a piece does not lead to some emotion or thought, but just leaves your mind speachless. Just keeps you staring silently. And this is one of those pieces.

It's just my personal peception of course. What I meant is that for me this is a sign of great mastery of painting, to produce something like that. Thanks for sharing your work, it's fantastic!

I have featured this deviation in my journal as a thumbnail because I like it and want my watchers to see it.

If you object to your work being displayed in this manor - I have every respect for you and will remove it as soon as I receive a note from you asking me to remove it.

Keep up the really great work.

Andy
