There is power in being able to express something emotive through art and let it go, I find it’s this that keeps me engaged in using art to grow and heal…

    I’m really enjoying the work that you are posting. Once again glad to have crossed your path. I just wish I could see these in person as it is so much fun to stand in front of a painting and get into it. Peace always…

    I agree with everyone else, as I’ve said it over & over…I wish I could see it in person!
    This is amazing & I know it’s got to be KILLER in person.
    The sad thing is that non-painters who have never seen such paintings have no idea the difference between seeing the image on the computer screen & seeing it in person & how it really comes to life with all it’s layers & textures & the light hitting them in different ways at different times! I wish I could make everyone understand this. I have had so many people say “I just don’t get what is so great about that!” (NOT this picture, in general. ) I remember the first time I saw paintings in a gallery when I was a child & I was blown away. I am still always blown away when I see a picture of a painting I like & then when I see the ACTUAL painting!
    Anyhow, great title for a great piece that I know is so much greater in person! :)

  • I do have to admit this does look so much better in person, you just don’t get the depth as you do in person. Thank you so very much Lacey appreciate your continued support as always and I am glad for what you have written here :)

    Very good, my head on a Monday morning, full of rust, brittle leaves and half memories of a weekend.
    So true, that about seeing paintings for real, if i see a painting that i really like i get the same feeling as when i really really fancy someone….without the erection part, obviously.

  • chili!!! this made me howl… should this piece be flattered :0)
    Thank you so much for your kind and funny comment :)
