I like the first one, when I look at I think of the part in fight club that goes 'under and inside everything we take for granted, something horrible has been growing' or something to that extent. I especially like the sky.

i hadn't thought of that, but now you mention the fight club thing it fits pretty well. one of the things I love about art is how people bring different things to what they see Smiley

I love the first one for its surreal -ness (for lack of a better word) and the second one just makes me want to think about it...and what its about. I really like that you paint from your brain - with symbolism and meaning - rather than from a prop (prop meaning a person, place, thing, picture in front of you)

thank you Smiley
I am capable of painting from "real life" like still lifes, etc., but I love working free with thoughts and pushing paint around a canvas and seeing what it wants to be. I never see a blank canvas really. I am glad you enjoyed them both Smiley
