Can I be frank with you? I've watched over a considerable amount of time you upload these wonderful & I mean that, wonderful paintings. I'm not blind I can see that you can paint & very well indeed. However, I always stop & pause at this one for a lengthier time & I now know why. All of your work is exceptional, it is but this one says a little more about you, And that artist within your character. There is something a little more artsy, a little more out of the ordinary, a little more creative in this painting.
I'm not one to tell you how you should run your practice, a man has the freedom to do as he will.
However, if you would consider my thought........there is a bolder side of you that isn't quite showing, not arrogant but bolder. It's a side that I can see here & there but not quite get a real good look at. I was wondering what it be like if you blew it up, let it go so to speak "break it out". Cause see, It's clear you got the great talent but there is something, something huge, something just waiting to be expressed but for some reason your not letting. Please do consider this creative explosion, thank you.
