Kinda don't like this one.

I think I see kinda what you are going for, but I can't describe it, but, it just doesn't work for me.

Might think I'd like it more (though not much more) if you had posterized the human form and were more realist with the sun.

But I don't know, just feels a touch gimmicky to me.


It has some elements in common with "Rising Sun" from a ways back--except this time the "sun" is eclipsed (& the figure is more prominent).

I do think the figure would be beautiful by itself, but I don't see the point in slagging one part of a collective work without seeing it in context.

Is it me, or does it seem like the critics have been coming out of the woodwork recently?


I've been here from day one terwiliger.


If I minded downer criticism of my paintings, I wouldn't show them here. I'm always interested in the reactions my paintings get.

T makes a point: this piece is among a few others that have of theme of rejuvenation. I want each painting to stand on its own, yet be an aspect of the whole body of my up-coming show.

Pinto, I give you credit for being specific. May I suggest: If I happen to do a piece you find aweful, your SILENCE will speak VOLUMES.


Sheesh! I ain't ever gonna let you guys see my Elvis collection on velvet under black light!


Heh John and Heh Garand.



You fooled me with the stone/canvas thing again!!!
