it definately stirs something in me, different to most o f your other stuff, got real spiritual connotations to it. i watched one of your videos but was a bit confused, do you draw with graphite onto prepped canvas then paint over it?

this is awesome, I love the things done with the background, the perspective/spectrum rainbow...and the grey as well, as though its a road sign point in the right direction...though maybe im looking too far into it...

Wow. I am a huge fan of this piece. I have been trying the mixed medium approach to surrealism as well. This is quite an inspiration. Great work, and I hope you make lots of money from this and any other future endeavors.

Ah very cool arrangement. Reads to me that the back of her mind is the prismatic point, and vision moves outward rather than in, through her hand and eyes.

Yeah, I love this too - the toned-down colors and the shadowy graphite are so complementary. It looks so simple but the details make it just complex enough to be truly interesting!

Yet again one of those extremely regretful instances where I wish I could see the piece itself in person, rather than being limited to the confines of a digital screen.

Your work is profound and inspiring :) Will be watching you :hug:

Wow,this one is really interesting I like the concept..it´s some sort of modern seer,eh?The bird is a nice touch!I just miss something from the background..it´s a little bit too light for my taste,that white part,because then I cannot concentrate on the subject,but alas it´s beautiful and you´re the master here not me! :)

The motive in the circle..are that waves?
