Very nice work! Art has saved my life many times...

As far as how I think art works for people like us, and what it does for us... one never knows when making a piece or series of any genre how it will turn out, the thrill of the chase as far as subject ideas and supplies is extremely appealing in any genre, and although it may be frustrating, difficult or not turn out right one too many times, never give up, and in the end it will bring you and your fanbase great enjoyment. Never give in to a negative factor, never give up.

These words will go on here as a journal and a custom box, and on other places... I'll have to find the custom box template you made for me with G.G. Allin in it and alternate between that and a storm one depending on the weather/my mood, once I learn how to make them work.

You are very welcome, and honestly after deleting a flaming/trolling FB status dedicated to my crosstown nemesis of sorts on dA (you know who I'm speaking of) and which was open to friends and mutual friends, and putting on a "sensual grooves" CD, which is basically rhythm & blues melded with smooth jazz, I developed a very nice sense of calming, peace and enlightenment in which I produced a poem and a motivational item derived from nice comments I left. Often I get these just before spike manic or depression stages, I hope it is neither.

I'm happy to be your friend and one of your major art appreciators. A guy who intends to own the 4-seater pickup truck version of a kombie in "hoodride" (junker-styled custom) configuration and already has a model of one can't be too bad, right?

If the regulations on importing wood to Australia weren't so stringent, I'd commission you to do abstract designs in your style on the wood door paneling after I had those parts drilled for speakers, armrests, door handles and attachment points... my intent is to do a fake-patina, fake-faded flat red paint job with black primer instead of chrome in places and rusty chrome in others and some type of color mismatch on the left-side door, similar to the model one I got recently.
