    GREAT! Such tremendous feeling! Wow! I just love the strong interplay of both darks vs lights. The splendid sense of proportions. Unique composition/design. Your artworks are quite truly INCREDIBLE! Really BRILLIANT stuff! ;-)

  • Thanks Paul once again for your great comments – the works ‘mourning’ were originally inspired by a Japanese Theatre character – and their use of expression to portray emotion

    Yes, I can quite clearly see the effect, now; like a Japanese Noh Theatre mask. ;-)

    (Not trying to be in the least bit facetious, though; I swear, the work reminded me when I first looked at it; as being a rather like the face of the famous film actor John Wayne; as though he were barking out some very loud command.)

  • I can see that .. yes…the eye area especially
