this reminds me so much of jerry that is difficult not to think he is the author. It's not one of your best, oh anonimous you.

I really like this one...but is it focused correctly? It seems to be reallly blurry. *GRIN* The brown blur detracts from the whole I think.

everything this says, especially turning its back on its fans...like this, subtle and gentle....who is this fellow?

Except the strange looking brown on the viewers right it is a wonderful choice of sherbets:) Yumm!

ok so it is more of a sketch, but i thought hte impact of it was good enough to leave it.

Why Anonymous? Your style here on WC is so distinct.

09-11-2002, 02:06 PM

I thought,

Jerry ...and the artists here well versed in expressing themselves uniquely and successfully ... imho it's the paintings with what's considered the odd difference that deviates from what I have come to expect that I find most interesting.

In a gallery of five of your paintings in a row, this one I would keep looking at. It's more than just because it's simply "different", it shows me something more, draws me into the creating of it and emphasizes your style.

course I'm a little "different" myself:)

It's strong, I like this one.

I think your point speaks to the problem that salmarino thought he was solving by being disruptively involved in sex cartoons.

yes we do want to aggravate (or stimulate), and we do want to appeal, and we do want to share in our discovery, and we want to have a good time - but we also want something beautiful that stands on its own as a piece of art.

Luckily it draws you in and it draws me in to.

I will keep trying that again in different ways and if it happens we will be lucky again.

Oh no ..."salmarino"!!!!!!!!! my face turned red because I wonder now if I insulted you? That was'nt my intention:)

"but we also want something beautiful that stands on its own as a piece of art."

Thankyou, I have been thinking about this post and wondering what your thoughts were on it- and still forming my own opinion on it actually. I'm tending to agree that the art does need to stand on it's own, as the artist does, and the paintings "in a row".

But it would still the painting that I would focus on and want to take home! *smile*

scrap...scott closed the thread and told him to take it to debates..

09-11-2002, 07:47 PM
better, Jer

I agree with the BABE....shhhh

I was just going over my mass of painted surface trying to pick the ones I felt least symbolized what I wanted to paint and I chose:

<img src="http://www.neoncrunch.on.ca/pix/thumbs/greenfairy.jpg"> <img src="http://www.neoncrunch.on.ca/pix/thumbs/shoestoo.jpg"> <img src="http://www.neoncrunch.on.ca/pix/thumbs/liviasgarden.jpg"> <img src="http://www.neoncrunch.on.ca/pix/thumbs/shadeless.jpg">

to be culled and become new paintings that may go better with the growing body of work.

like trimming the fat

Oh! you're THAT JerryW! I remember that GREAT tinyhead you used for a long time but I was scattered in so many forums I didn't see you THAT often to know!

09-12-2002, 08:49 AM
Hey Jerry,

don't get rid of the green fairy muse. That one was one of my favorites......it stands out for sure, but in a good way!

btw, i like this painting too. I like the broad strokes on the facial shadow, the angle, and the colors.


09-12-2002, 12:57 PM
Your final additions have sealed the deal!! It feels more grounded and complete now. I really like it!

09-12-2002, 05:23 PM
I'm glad to see you did something with the bark-like texture of the T shirt arm, it was bothering me. Now... wonderful!
These newer ones you're doing seem to be more vivid, somehow. Wish I could get inside your head for a few minutes, I really need help with colour.
Incidentally, the chosen pieces for overpainting, the girl in the chair at the table is one of my favourites... but mine is not to reason why.
Keep on truckin'!

09-12-2002, 05:25 PM
recognizable in a heartbeat....but it seems different from your other work Ive seen for some reason, cant put my finger on it... but ,( of course)I like it.

09-13-2002, 10:35 AM
hummm wonder who this could be:D
sure like your style simon.

09-13-2002, 12:11 PM
your palet
over all style
and, of course, tilted world approach
all give aways...

I waited to see if you would solidify the brown

miss the side by side this time
(that works so well...thanks for previous)

salmarino...replied twice on one thread
second was given as
proverbial ruler smack on hand
as he had smacked us with one to begin with
then...skipped the rest
don't like my chain yanked...basic communication better
he was too much of a "smartie pants"...oh well...
I actually liked some of his website work...definately different...

I do not like to think of you culling any work
always something to see and learn from
I feel this way about all work
should be kept for future viewing
never know where an idea for inspiration will come from
even older culled work...viewed with new eyes refreshed

the whole pose mixed with the tilted world aspect and colors
does make this very relaxing
love the light from behind and
field of bright infront/ below...
like falling into a bright abyss

WC...blessing/ curse...gonna go paint now...chow!

09-13-2002, 01:06 PM
before and after

09-13-2002, 01:12 PM
Jerry.... this is the first one of yours I have really liked... (my own fault)... but the brown thing at upper right still sits like a heavy weight on his back IMO...
