Hauntingly beautiful. The texture, the cascading lines, the depth - I love it. It takes my breath away every time I look at it.

I have always been an avid observer of people and how we interact with each other and when i find myself in places where lots of random people are moving about on their business..i can't help but wonder what they are like personally,about their lives and emotional states etc and then i think about myself in that enviroment and then the creative ideas start to come...i also love expressive oil painting ..its tactile properties and fluidity on the canvas....one of my biggest artist inspiration is Frank Auerbach!!
hope this is helpful and thx for liking my work

No problem I find your art amazing, just how it holds so much emotion. Does it ever scare you when think to yourself, about all these people their different personalities? I mean all these people they have thoughts, actions, mistakes, careers, family's? I mean if you think about it, we are never truly there are we? I feel quiet old, it does not help I live with everyone over 40... my grandparents have always told me I have an old soul...? All these people happy, sad, suisidle, nerds, greeks, higher ups. We are all human, yes? A 12 year old

has a great emotional feel, for me "wintery". the reflection and the "no legs/feet" add a sense of transience. love it

Amazing. Almost looks like the people are in water...reminds me of this virtual college commercial where this guy says he wants to his "own way" as opposed to everyone else, and he starts walking in the opposite direction everyone else is going in...and that person in the middle of the picture seems like him :)

that's beautiful, it's so haunting. :omg: something about it almost seems supernatural, maybe its how the figures don't have hard lines and they just fade like cascading water. I wish I was a painter, that way I could do something this memorable. :-D
