I really like your work! I see we share an interest in Surrealism, Graphite&Charcoal, and the movie " Naked Lunch." Have you ever seen the stop-animation of the Brothers Quay, I think you would enjoy their work.


I love what your doing, and how you have adapted the surrealist influences. Margaret, Artist at Work

Hi! Listen, I have about 6 months to prepare for my first solo show, and I was hoping you could assist me. I will need to have at least 30 paintings to display. If you could, with as much honesty as possible, please name 2 of my completed pieces that you feel I should definitely show. Also, please share 3 things with me, based on my current work, (remember be honest), that you would recommend to me for improving my art in general. I am fine if you post this on my public board because it may be interesting to others. The feedback from other artist on this website is very valuable to me. Thanks! ~Marianne

Bartley, Fascinating artwork! Thanks for the add!


I have a new painting up take a look and let me know what you think.


Thats beautiful , I love that feeling of being blind to anything but love , I love the madness and childlikeness when you feel you are seeing everything for the very first time , my son once said to me that you can only smell roses once and that is true but when you are in love it is like smelling them for the first time every time , life is full of wonder. When i think of love i think of a hot deep red. k


can you tell me about lover seeing only you , the title and thought behind it intrigues me k
