My favorite part of all your works is the strong gaze in your portraits, regardless of how you abstract or deconstruct the figure. This piece is no different. I think the best aspect of this piece is the contrast between the dominating swaths of color, the black shirt-like mass, and the strength of that gaze. Despite how obscure the eyes are, they pierce the viewer, and make it a little confrontational which is really intriguing. My only suggestion is to perhaps treat more areas like you have the ear on the left. The areas where there is less mass and the marks get sort of gestural and organic are really successful!

I hope this was helpful and I hope to see more work in the future. I really admire your talent and style!

This is gonna sound corny of me to say but i'm gonna say it any ways. But eyes have always been referred to as windows to the soul, and in all your pieces you seem to always give the subject a soul. Something life like, as if the subject could jump off the page and interact with the viewers no matter how dream like, organic, and abstract the colors and composition is, the work is surreal and gorgeous. Every splash of color and touch of fine detail draws one into the piece and just over flows with emotion and spirit, keep up the great works! I haven't seen a piece you've done that I don't like or have not been impressed by. Your work is inspiring for others who work in this type of medium and subject matter.

sorry for this but I'm supersticious...
... P.M .9 years ago
a person dared Jerry got dared to sleep
... ... in a house that was belived
... next day his friends
waited for him out
side the house.... ..... ..... ..... They had
to go inside and search for
him. They
went through every room
exept the
attic.He wasn't supposed to sleep
there. He was supposed to
sleep in the
living room they went into
the attic.
They saw Jerry's corpse and they just
left because they were
scared. But that
night they all died because
of their
friend. He killed them all for making him
sleep in that house If you
don't send
this to 11 comments you
will die tonight
by Jerry. Example 1: A man named
Stewart Read this and
didn't believe it.
He shut off his computer
and went
through his day. That night while he
was in bed he heard
something outside
of his door. He got up to
look. And now
he's dead. Example 2: A Girl named
Haley Read this in the
morning and she
got scared but she didn't send it. She wanted to know if it was true. She went to school (She was only 13 years old) and that night she died. If
you don't post this on 11 comments tonight you

I know you probably get a million of these each day, but can I just say that I love your style and your choices of color? Your work is stunning! I'm not an art critic, but the piece is so subtle yet striking.
