She totally digs this one. Your stlye has a lot of feel. Very loose, and free. I need to loosen up some. Don't take this the wrong way, but this piece reminds me of Van Goughe.

Could you please share your insights?

It would also be great to see the two paintings side by side. I would post them here but I am supposed to be working :evil:

Oh yeah, they're both wonderful Wayne, thanks!

My insights .. just following up on what Scott spelled out for me in the last thread and so I took it in photoshop and pumped it up and down and found about 3 different versions that would make super paintings if I can capture the radience. Hopefully will have one to post later today.

here is the old version. Scott's comments are here (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=59003)

YESSSS! Now it's really come to life. Beautiful work. I liked the first one, but when I saw the changes--wow.

Nice! The addition of the blue is perfect.

it used to be alien eyes (nice ones)
now boobs,
subtle maybe.

I like the bold brush strokes and the vivid colours. I agree that it does have some Van Gougheishness to it.

Hi Wayne!

Just got back online and saw this one. I'm honored that you thought enough of my suggestions to just go in and DO IT!
You are obviously working very hard to improve,...develop,..and find your distinctive niche,style and success.God,..your attitude reminds me SO much of myself a few years ago when I was DETERMINED to become an accomplished artist,..and BEGIN to try and master my craft.Basically,...I worked myself into a quasi nervous-breakdown. Wife,..son,.two jobs,etc. Working 21 hours-a-day is probably too much for anyone.
Nevertheless,..an art career does require alot of determination and miles on the end-of-your-brushes..;)
I commend you sincerely.
And, although I hesitate to offer too much advice to ANYONE;..one cliche comes strongly to mind......try to thoroughly enjoy your creative journey. It will take you on adventures that you might never have imagined.P.S: I invite you to email me for ANY advice or encouragement that you may wish.Any friend would offer you this..........:) NICE WORK..Cheers-Scott

Well Scott, I will certainly keep that in mind .. yes, I do get frenzied out at times but most times I love it .. I simply love it and by nature of my heart, I have to master it or at least do well ..

Thank you very much for your time and efforts and I will add your email to my email address book and when I do bother you, I will include my personal email address as I sometimes forget to check the one I have listed with WC.

later, and again, thank you.
