      this done on a large wooden board i found. even before i could bring myself to start on this, i had it in my room just watching me it seemed. when i could't take it any more i had to start. its been changed so many times, but here it is now. its not done yet, it will have to change more and much more.. so i'll keep it updated here as it goes
      the big cranium will be the first to go.

      this is a recent one.
      that imprint up top, from the frame was unintentional, didn't want to try to fix it and sacrifice more.

      ahhhhh!! its hopeless, is it not? my ties to painting/art etc feels soo frail and easy to loose contact with even though i've been doing this for so long... even if on a very wanton basis.
      must be my way of thinking.
      why do we keep trying DV? why, even when 1 step forward is like 2 steps backwards?!

      I REALLY like some of these and feel like you should be famous. Such an original feeling they give off, dark and eerie but really alluring in some indescribable way. They all sort of look like random messy paint smears at first glance, but then I realize they're well thought out, the bodies beneath are realistically proportioned. It's like this perfect mixture of making it look really messy while really every stroke is planned. Or maybe I'm just reading things into it that you didn't intend... I tend to do that with art.

      i don't really know what to say. your response makes me happy. i could ramble on and on about this stuff, but i won't because you've said a lot of truths already. i will say that most of what [ and probably more accurately- how ] i paint is from a place of depression and hopelessness, and this has everything to do with my life... because its not like i go up to the canvas and all of my fears and problems go away. no, the fact is i don't have a dream for my life, and i don't talk to people or have friends, instead i paint, so when i do its as if i have to go through some suffering for missing "the point of life" for so long/ fighting whats natural in such a cold way. you know? i've suppressed so much for so long but i've watched myself make art since young, even at 2 with finger paint.. so its all i have and i rarely have fun when painting [at least for the last 6-7 years to now,] yet i would never stop. thanks tons for what you've said, i don't think i've gotten a response like that ever. it sort of confirms what i think in my head to the real world and helps me believe in what i do. i know melodramatic but its just what hit me.

      Excellent work!!! I sometimes wish I could do expressionist work like this, but I'm stuck doing realistic anatomy etc, and not driven by whatever inner forces must drive this kind of creation.

      ah well the technical work is just as important, it's good that you're covering that side of the arts. i should soon be joining you in that field with more commitment than in the past. after all you need to be able to build things for something to be torn apart.
      i bet you'd do fine with expressionist stuff if you tried.. its terribly unlimited if you can have an underlying subject of any kind.. i think the subject is all that keeps expressionism and abstract apart.

      Your drawing is great! Excellent composition and very strong shapes. A bit of Gieger in there as well as other influences I'm sure, but it feels like your own work, not derivative.

      Your style speaks a lot to me. It speaks of energetic emotion, conveying strong feelings that are hard to put into words, and actually not sensible to try to do so-- but visually expressed, they work seamlessly. There's some subtle and some not-so-subtle narratives going on, stories of what's playing out into your mind that leaks through the objects on the paper or canvas or whatever it be, and connecting with it feels natural to me.

      Expressionism of this kind always hits home, I feel like there are a lot of dark influences here, and that's sweet. It's depicted very well. Keep up the great work fellow artist.

      Would you ever consider selling any of your paintings? If I had my own house to decorate and a lot of money, I would probably PM you and try to buy one for real or convince you to make a replica at least. Maybe someday, lol. It's incredible how strongly a lot of these appeal to me on some deep level, I can't even explain why. I agree with Spenner, it's hard to put it into words.

      sorry. you deserve a better answer than that. i've been going through some bad psychological states recently- look at the storms outside and you'll know how i feel. i'm fairly sure i'd have no problems selling a painting to you someday if ya want :] i think it would be difficult to replicate anything.. but then again prints can be made with some scanners. thanks dianeva, for the support.
