That lift is amazingly done, Jerry. The dark stands out differently probably because I can't see the texture of it like the rest. The tension is terrific with the heavy structural red on the balancing out the construction work, you want to stagger right, but the red keeps you from leaning too far -- like walking zig zag between debri and traffic trying not to lose your balance. Not only have you portrayed the mood you've captured the walk as well.

Veritigo for sure.

How can you improve on the next one? Well, I'll have to buy a new monitor before I can say.

Interesting angles...Dornberg forging through the weight of the city :)

i like the reds coming down,
the blacks coming down,
the whites going everywhere.
energetic and messy

I reposted the photo now that the canvas is dry.
did a few touch ups around the figure and signed.

photo-ing in the basement beside the computer(s) is always more true color for me than in the studio.

when I took the source lomo, bob and I were walking beside each other lugging stuff, between visiting galleries. the figure in the distance was some unknown character.

I took the photo for the yellow directionals, this depiction is from about 1/3 part of the photo where the interesting bits were.

Remarkable brilliant radical painting, of course. But I’m posting to ask a question more than to make a comment... can I ask who you’d list as your major “influences”, Jerry? [I’ve seen comments that your work is reminiscent of a certain Sovek, but having done an Internet search I think Sovek’s work is simply not in your league]. Your work - together with that of Dornberg - is really unlike anything I’ve seen before, apparently a genuinely original style: but perhaps you’re building on the work of artists I don’t know about?

Anyway, I consider myself very lucky to have been able to communicate with you via this forum: thank-you. - Guy in Spain
