as I start to post...it seems I am first...
but, as many times before, as experienced
my post may show up many times after the first...
a sign that you and your works are beloved...
that says more than I can summize in words...

and now, of course, I have to "get off the phone"
so I will revisit...bye for now!

ZIIIING! This is awesome! I love your fuzzy leg. I love the slant, like you can feel the earth's curve. A little Tic tac toe thing happening? :)

Jerry this is spectacular! I love the angle - all the people - totally dig the lady sipping from the bottle...absolutely fantastic body language!

Oh yeah! Perfect!
The colors, the angles, the light, the composition, the girl taking a sip. Wonderful.

This one is outstanding because I believe that color is more important them detail. Tight constructed paint by number paintings often bleed into the fine arts. This may be the other extreme thats why I love it. The style in original.

i like the grouping of varied figures
i like the grouping of shadows
quite wild and exciting

your lomo moments...
and your progression of paint expression

the lean
and now, as Artistanne points out...the "curve of the earth" too...

the play of light and dark
the play of paint/hue against and with other paint/hue

jesture and feeling of place and person
a shared place...where ever it is...however it is...
perhaps culturaly separate...but personally universal

All things are said already:) I like it lot!!full of sun/water/fun energy.

I like it but, I think the guy upper rt draws the eye too much because of his dark head against light sky. The seated girl, imo, deserves to be focal area instead; she is more interesting. Perhaps darken her hair and lighten the guy's head.

This is great, Jerry! But why aren't they all looking at those wonderfully crossed legs? :evil: Exquisite! Jim

Great integrated weave of darks and lights.
Your paintings look almost always so personalized, like you really get their gestures, posture, emotion,like you know them well inside their skull.(in that case must be hard to part with yr paintings) Or is it that you are just a very good "novelist on canvas" and add and form the characters while painting?
Just wondering about this subject while enjoying this great work.

Exciting stuff as always.
I study your compositions.

Whether predesigned,..or a fortunate happenstance..(as a result of MANY lomo photographs); the design and composition of this one is both exciting and interesting.

Good Stuff! -S

The angular composition, light and colors make me feel like I’m on a boat speeding along on a hot sunny day. I know this is a beach scene but there’s such a strong feeling of motion in it they could be on a speeding boat. Excellent job Jerry. :)

sweeping movement
through the back

great multi-tilts

things converge
nicely and the light
is anchored by the
boldest darks

a cut above all

For once excuse me but

ça bouge
ça remue
ça s'amuse

encore ... encore ... encore ...

it has a nice dornbergarian feel...tilting rocks, red jumps and purple moves!!

07-23-2004, 02:03 AM
I really like this style painting. It's almost as if you are catching the action between movement and focus. Great Work!
