first thing that went through my mind when i saw this

The shadow people urban legend but inside their world and how they see it. nothing but shadows of their hosts, wandering their cold world,looking into ours,wondering if it is the same.Sometimes i feel they're world is better than ours,cold,dark,and silent.

I get a sense that there may be a murder soon...:O_o: that's just what it makes me think of. I really like it, the painting, not murder, though. Congrats on the DD.

I like this one a lot. The one guy in the white stands out to me. It reminds me of trying to recall the image of a certain person Ina situation, and with time, memory has only made it hazy and almost indistinguishable from one face or color.

Again, very nice.

Hi..no problem..where did you get the original image you painted it from? did you take a photo?

I take a lot of images using my b+w film camera on a slow shutter speed setting to try and focus on form and tone etc. For 'Decision' , i experimented by juxtaposing 2 separate images of exits at Zurich train station together to create a sort of imbalance and tension for the figure in the middle. I then create a tonal/form drawing of the image and use this to create my paintings. It helps me try and focus on the suggestion of form and movement. Thanks again for your interest :)
