Eerie feel... in a most cool way. Get that lonely, time has stopped vibe. Like the hi key scheme and the architectural construction throughout. If this doesn't grab one's attention.. time to take a pulse.

Your vision of art is amazing. I see all your works, and are better and better with the pass of time.

Your style reminds me a lot the work of the master Edward Hooper.

I feel lonelyness and beauty in a pure painting style of seeing the "reality".

You are and great inspiration for me.

Congrats and Best Regards.

Nacho Frades.

I like this Bombay Beach series--the warm palette and feeling of isolation and desolation. Definitely "dirty beauty."

I thought that your workshop was probably with CA, and am looking forward to seeing some of those too.

A creamy effect in acrylic..love it! It's really true..all of your works really inspired us to draw more & more.I can learn so much from this painting..the beauty in it's simplicity.

You handled the color in this one nicely, and I like the long composition. It goes nicely with your subject. Like NF said, it's Hopper like in it's mood.... I wonder if mail ever gets dropped in that lonely post-office mail box?
