Many thanks for your kind words, Ruth!  I'm glad you enjoyed the funny stuff ... I know I enjoyed painting it and living most of it!

Hi Ruth

Thank you for your faith in me to comment on your artwork. I certainly am not a good one to be a critic. I have only been doing this since June 2011. As I look at the work in chronological order I can see vast improvement. On your later work you have a great grasp of tone and shadow to add 3 dimension to the piece. On the ship I would go for a higher angle to get a little better view of the distance. As it is, you only show the forground and it makes it look as though the world ends at the back side of the ship. Other than that (which is minor) I love what you are doing. If you keep growing this much with every piece, you will be scary good in no time.

I don't know if anything I have said helps you. But I don't feel qualified to direct anyone. Just keep on keepin' on!

Hi Ruth: This is kinda embarASSing but I just discovered your message.  Thank you so much for your encouraging words!!  I've been having a lot of trouble prioritizing my fairly new life as an artist.  I was a legal assistant for 25 years working for demanding attorneys and am used to taking direction, kicking ass to follow it (them) and working as a team.  My gears are way shut down sometimes as a result of resigning that career and trying to discover my new Life. I'm beginning a book called The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron for aspiring artists which helps one discover their creativity from blocks, fear, self-sabatoge, etc. So So much to learn, discover, and do and don't spend enough time on here at all but that's gonna change starting now.  I didn't even know there was a place for comments way down at the bottom of my page!!! Til a bit ago. You are very talented.  Malasia??? Really? Wow.  What an exotic place on Earth to be. Were you born there? Do you enjoy living there?  Most importantly, to me, how's the food?  Yum! : )

youre very welcome Ruth...keep up the good work and always strive to improve and get better as you go along...would you believe I am still learning and working at improving my work...I take bits and pieces from other artists and incorporate them into my works giving it my style or twist...trying to make it my own...when i see a piece or work I like I try to see how would I have done it and then do my version of that piece

thank you very much for your comment!  I think the picture you were talking about is not a self portrait. if you meant the same picture as my profile picture than it is me, but the other one next to it, in my gallery isn't me.

thank you very much :)

no, my MOTHER went to school at Fairmont High School with him. My grandmother had a bunch of pictures. I took a trip up there several years ago and the lady in the musuem knew of my mother (also a famous musican) and said " oh, ive got to show you something" and she took me upstairs and showed me a bunch of on stage pictures of my mom and James Dean performing. It was an amazing trip. I learned so much. They even rode the bus together. then this lady took me down to some coffee shop and the bus driver was still alive (late 90's) and he remembered them both on his bus. I felt like i stepped back in time.
