Hi Karpisek very good works! bye Ouro


I with pleasure have got acquainted with your creativity. I shall be glad to show you my ENAMEL MOSAIC and to receive your response. Andrey


Thank you Aarts, trying to live here and now is sometimes difficult - thinking about someone...mind sticking to suffering...but after some time dedicated to full activity it comes clearer again. Meaning of this quote is also a reason why I decided to terminate my internet submissions and paid shops. I will save money to buy some garden and paint more rather than sit and hit the keyboard. Regards, Jan


Very interesting work, love your quote re living in the Now. regards, aarts


Mamtani- nice poem :) Thx!


Greetings - You are searching for spiritual values in art - good start...

love "tracking in space" beautiful soft subtle colors!


I like your abstract composition, very eyecatching!


Your early work and your post graduate work display a freedom that seems constrained in your Bachelor and Graduation series. Your concepts show maturity beyond your years. Best regards, robbie
