I was especially drawn to the star shape in the upper left, in a good way.
She looks exhausted, must have been a long night:)
I would love to see some color punch on her shirt or chest/neck area, maybe a repeat of the light blue?

Hmmmm. Was at your website about half an hour ago. Looking at everything and thinking...this guy is a programmer? Meaning most programmers I knew couldn't release the mouse long enough to pick up a brush. Fantastic!

Love your style, color, love everything about your art. Really!

Love the expression...and the orange. M

The tourquoise on the left vibrates! Gutsy and lively as usual Jerry.

Love this......especially the expression on her face.

She does look tired. For me, ower was out for 29 hours. Is that coffee? Did they brew it over the barbeque?

mcknight { danforth ave. got power first, we went without for another day and then spotty - they were really unhappy to have so many breakfast customers, (at upper left are waiting people reading newspapers etc, right out the door). Apparently the night shift could not clean up so...}

Rabbit Twilight { it's close }

narista {thanks}

mfoxmelanson { yeeaah! }

Dana { maybe not exactly a programmer, though I do that, more like an unwilling bug buster & system designer. I have a totality based mental approach. }

Luzie {I might need to adjust the eyes a bit, but I want to keep the same wacky distortion throughout. }

I like them all .. nice look to this ..

modified the eyes

still has that looming look - like what is going to happen next, but a tad more sultry.

I can relate to her look....we were one of the very few in our area who didn't lose power....We had MANY house guests! (hmmm blessing or a curse?)

The painting has so much depth however, the figures look flat to me. It is very intriguing. If feels as if she is handing me the cup of coffee.

Both the tired-looking girl holding a mug and the left abstract shape intrigue me. Such a good balance.

Another winner Jerry!!:clap: :clap: I am always amazed at what you create!!:D

I love the character of the lady in the front,
and the sharp perspective that pulls you into the center.
Very interesting painting.

Where in Detroit is this from?

of shapes lines

the angulation, placement, play of shape and line
is nmatural now

no need to hardly think about these now

color is on the horizon

always nutricious and delicious
memories... brain notes

Hi, Jerry!

I just wanted to congratulate you on the Alan Edwards Award you got for "Click" and sale of the painting! I instantly recognized your style when I opened the center section of Art Avenue magazine!

You work is getting better and better!


(sorry to get off topic)

Rita{ the slide I sent them which admitted the piecewas shot indoors with out door film none of us are happy with the adjustment in art avenue photo. my fault though. I got new slide makings now.
that piece sold to some people in California from the Vancouver show. --- thought that was very neat too. Thanks for visiting.}

giniaad { we are sharing engrams}

dornberg { you are right it was almost sleep painting, except when I came back and fixed everything - that was like dream painting }

Rieko { the left abstract shape includes a leaning man reading a newspaper, soneone behind him, and a couple of people sitting on stools at the counter.}

John H. Wulkan {personally I like it when I get flatness and depth - it feels like a funhouse}

Great composition and colors!

I've got no questions or really any comments - that havent been said. The bit of story we got was interesting and worthy of a painting.

Oh! I think I remember that place, you have a wonderful city, and a subway system any American city would envy. Especially Detroit! :D
