Art appreciation.
  There are many things which bring people together in this world. One of them is an appreciation of Art, the arts, and literature. I have always loved books, and reading, and find that a well written book can be a great inspiration of the imagination. I have seen the same thing with music. Many artists work on multiple artistic disciplines. It rarely surprises me when I find an artist who also delves into the mysteries of life through music and words.  I had a lucky day yesterday. I recveived two lovely notes. One was a link to a review of art by a friend on site: https://baugelitt.eu/lart-et-la-beaute-clin-doeil-a-mes-amis-artistes/.  The

Flo (Progressive) in Hunger Games doing a hadouken... Let's just say, I've heard of hunger games and even suffered through the first movie, haha. - I might have to do some research, but just in case, I'm going to generate a backup... Hmm... Spock, at The Wall (Game of Thrones) having trouble with technology... Now I really want to look up what a hadouken is...

Just a quick update: lots of changes in my life lately, and I have a new child to welcome to the world, a daughter, so I've been busy and away from my communications and computer, and artwork, too. I will be back soon and will update, and get back on ...

My first visit to this gallery, and I'm completely swept away by your adaptations from the photos and other media you've used as references (and many kudos for your care and attention to cite them and give credit; not every artist here is so dedicated). Your work contains some of the loveliest images I've seen here at dA, and more than a few posted here are so striking that they took my breath away.

What hit me most is your painterly style, your ability to see inside a photograph and catch the hints provided that tell you about layers, texture, color, lighting, etc. So much talent, and so much skill. Then too, I was delighted by how you work at different stylistic approaches: oil, watercolor, etc. I'm not a visual artist (more a musician), but it's all so delicious.

I'd like to see more of your work that focuses on teens and younger girls. No, I'm not a dirty old man like David Hamilton (where is he now?). It's just that you have a real sense of how to represent the facial features and the gazes of the naive, the optimistic, the unjaded...and the very youthful bodies that are just budding. Any chance you'll be doing more of those?

I also like music and used to do a lot of creative endeavours with music.

Interesting. As a musician, my curiosity is piqued! What kinds of things did you do?

I used to have a 4 track back in the day and did a lot of song writing and home recording. Eventually I got a laptop and learned some of those digital recording skills. I used to post music on Acid Planet, but Sony eventually decided not to continue to support that site, which was a shame, because there was a LOT of interesting music from independent folk that is now lost forever. I used to write more complicated music, but there was a part of me that felt it was wrong to be able to write and not play (young people make strange decisions) so I actually went to writing stuff I could play, and then built up my skills a bit. As with the art, I think I enjoyed the continual learning, and the challenge rather than some of the traditional sense of why people get into music. Met lots of interesting people, too! Lately I just practise guitar, and having been saving up to get a new cabinet for my amplifier. I haven't recorded any more complicated pieces lately, - life's been busy and I was kind of depressed for a while. There. In a nutshell! haha. what kinds of music pique your interest? I like all kinds, to be honest.
