I love the creatures, especially the one on the right with the long snout. I'd love to see this in color- Very Bosch-like.

This is SO Tim Burton! You've got great depth in this. The framed picture on the left above the fireplace even shows great depth in it. Nice piece that I would expect to see as an illustration for a book.

Go buy some scratch board and see if you can get the same results!

i'm glad that the tim burton and bosch infuence came off so strong... those are some of my heroes.. i put this painting in a critique for my last day in 3rd year painting at my art school... the majority of everyone's paintings consisted of abstract expressionism and while some paintings were very good... most weren't. my professor had nothing to say about this painting other than it was to illustrative... i appreciate the positive comments from you people though http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

I must make a piece of art everyday for my own well being.

very cool. I was also thinking "Evil Dead"

05-06-2001, 05:52 AM
that's interesting you mention evil dead... i'm a devoted fan of sam raimi even though he made a baseball movie... i think the log cabin plays a crucial role in the very concept of this painting series.. a labyrinthe of rooms... i just need to paint the entrance to the fruit cellar...

What I love about this painting is that it says 'to hell with subtlety' and does so effectively. It sort of reminds me of a demented pop-up style children's book. This was a real treat, Cabal. Loved your other work too.

Cabal...as you posted this piece under Everetto's "never ending story"...also...
I posted my reply to your piece (as well) there...
I tried to copy and paste the reply here...
tried to put a link to that here...
but the puter or the website did not "like that"
ie...I was not allowed to do that...
it was lengthy...
so hope that you will check it out there...
sorry for the inconvenience...
I do hope you will read it though...

wow, what a cool surprise. this is great. there is so much to look at in this painting it's almost overwhelming. part of the point i'm sure. love the burton and bosch influence with a little clive barker thrown in for good measure, but really, what makes this painting so effective is how well it's painted. great composition and paint handling.

Haha, amen to that :cool:

I agree, the first thing I thought of when I saw this was Tim Burton. I'm also a fan! The snout-creature reminds me of one of the creatures that the dead couple turn into in Beetlejuice (you know what I'm talking about if you're a fan!) :)
I love it, what a great piece.

Hey, thanks for the links on Everettos thread
I enjoyed the gallery stroll very much
....and still dig your piece

Cool idea and great painting!

(I like the one Amy linked to, as well!)

thank you all for the responses and compliments. i enjoy seeing the connections to Tim Burton with me being such an avid fan of his films. i guess it shows through in some of my stuff. helen, amy linked one of my pics? what was it in the context of? just curious.
i need to post more work here. i've got over fifty paintings, drawings, sculptures, etc photographed and digitally loaded. i just need to find where i put the disc!

Cabal, the one Amy linked to was by James Ensor - sorry for the confusion!

a great monochromatic work
strong range of values makes it work
engaging geometry in the room
with the corner catching and bouncing
the eyes
fun characters crawling out
