I combined 4 main elements oil, pastel, colored pencil & mixed media to create this piece. I also used a 3 point perspective rule to create the view.

I had no idea what this painting was going to look like when I started and I had to be very careful when I was making design and material decisions. What took the most time was the blocks that are penciled in and then colored. This took a lot of concentration and planning as well as a unique apparatus that I put together in order to make the lines perfect. The surface was textured and then sanded down to a smooth surface that allowed the pencil and the pastels to really be effective.

Without commitment I write the following. I like to paint. I like to draw. I like to sculpt. I like to fix and create things.

Art is the only thing in my life that I don't have to take seriously. It comes from within and I don't argue with it. The meanings or influences that go into my painting although they are my own are easily translated by viewers from their perspective.

I have a lot of irons in the fire which is an expression meaning that I have a lot going on in my life. I build websites for companies and work from home. I have no children, I'm not married, I'm surrounded by cats, dogs and horses. I always find time to paint because I'd rather be doing that anyway.

A year or more ago I gave birth to a painting using 3 point perspective. It is titled Absolute Uncertainty. It is my member gallery but take a look at all of the developing photos, close ups and flash presentation on how to properly use 3 point perspective. I receive emails from all over the world on how cool this is, so I point to you this shining star.

Appreciate all you have in your heart and love the people around you. Dave

Profile This piece took a long time to create. Almost a year, If I recall. I appreciate your comments very much. You are very insightful!  
Profile I like how the person's face is in the air, and hidden, so that the viewer is not sure of what they're seeing. The swirls emanating from the face make me think of lots of thoughts swirling around our minds. There is almost a Picasso-esque feel to the face, because the eye and mouth are off-center. I...  
Profile This piece was a labor of love and was inspired by something I read or saw. It, like so many of my pieces, came from with in. All of the works I do are from my very soul. I really don't understand where they come from and sometimes don't understand what they mean. The Critique Corner has helped me l...  
Profile This beautiful surrealistic art work describe in my opinion the spiritual creation of all human beings, as the Kabala describe it in the tree of life. did you learned it some where? did you saw it or inspired from another picture of somebody else? or did it come out from in you?   
Profile This one has more draftsmanship.
