Lots of great art here!


Came across your page while exploring the wonderful art on this website. Very nice work. Please stop by for a visit if you get a chance. Regards, Bud C


Hello, hope that you are well. I was surprised to find your myspace sites gone, why are you no longer doing the music thing? Your art site is fantastic - you must have loads of spare time to paint now. I am very pleased to hear that you are still lovin' the psychedelia. Paula


My favorite is the Drive Thru Laundry............GREAT!


Thank you for your compliment I truly enjoy my work!


"The Crucifixion Of Alex Bell" is my favorite in your collection of work. I think it's breathtaking.


What a brilliant collection, I love your dark side. Margaret, Artist at Work, htttp://artist-at-work.co.uk

Hi Darren, I just posted a new abstract piece to my "New Work" gallery. Please check out "Union" and let me know what you think. Thanks! ~Marianne


there was a big hopper show at the tate a couple of years ago , i read that his wife was incedibly jealous of any models he would try and use and forced him to only paint her , he took a series of stills and then put them together , which i think is why there is such isolation in his paintings , the light is amazing , so stll and theatre set like , i believe he was an unhappy man , its the stillness in your work that reminds me of him k


There is a Hopper-esque isolation feel about your work k


I like your style,they all looks like they have some kind of halo,or they are on some kind (pop-art) trip

Well, I know I have been here before but thought I would take another look around. I wasn't planning on going through all of your galleries again, but then I couldn't stop myself. You have a lot of incredable work. I think art really is your life. Ahhh, and I see you are a fello Sethian, great! Nice to meet you. I enjoyed my visit. Keep creating! ~Marianne
