Wow. Nice forms. Love the outlines. Great movement. I have a difficult time getting that complex and having decent movement working that small.

This has so much depth and movement and complexity of shape and form, I love it.

Reminds me of a young Picasso - and that's a compliment. ;)

Very impressive!
Reminds me something like "Free proletarian slaves mining their coal..to burn." :) I guess, at first it was Vang Gogh's idea and Picasso use it after him.

I love the theme!

Dust Bowl horror vacui--you were born too late--this was your era.

This one is growing on me bschart. I like that you are bold enough to exclude color and do it in shades of gray. Maybe in light of the title it is appropriate in that twilight of awakening when nothing seems quite as material as after that morning coffee.

Bschart, do you paint many small works? If so, do you use them as studies or works for sale?

Thanks Anthony. I think?
Dave, I've been doing a lot of small pieces on paper recently. Easier to store. I don't use them for studies (usually) and I sell whatever I can whenever I can.

Those guys are poor fools! They were all first betrayed and then sold..
