That vast space behind this scene,and the obvious something happening to the right that has caught your character's attention both give me the sense that I am looking at a small part of something much larger, and something perhaps beyond my scope of understanding, as presented to me here. That plus the great respect for a classic portrayal of reality make me think of that greatest of surrealists. I really like the unconventional mixed media approach of your recent work. This may inspire me to do bolder things with my own paintings! Keep them coming - I love your work.
