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.

thank you christos, they are wonderful words you have written. your heart is loving and big, and i'm happy to be your friend that you can share that with me. the thrill of the chase, now i love that expression, it is a never ending chase which we gladly participate. hey, if you want custom box designs done, let me know. i can do anything for you :) :iconfoxthumbplz:

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.

jo... amazing image...!!! i like the feel of what's
smouldering behind and in front of the portrait...
the face has dual perceptions.... it can be either in
the front or surrounded in the depth of the muted
colours... and the intrigue of the eye... magick...!!!
one of your best in my opinion... keep rockin...!!!

Oh Dear I meant the darkness
I should have been a little more specific..
actually there is a kinda smile there & in that it puts you beyond the darkness which is what Id hoped you'd be

Truly thought if you feel good & positive
its all that really counts sweetheart

This is awesome. From this picture I see a beautiful creature, so white among the darkness, with double horns on each side. This may inspire a poem! haha

I see it and can tell there are more things going on than just a self portrait..the things braching off of you and floating into another moment in time..some hidden and obscured..you are safe behind the shadows of layers and I think this is FABULOUS!!! YOU KEEP IT UP HONEY!!!!!! I AM HERE TO CHEER YOU ON AND KEEP YOU GROUNDED!
LOTS OF LOVE AND HUGS!!!!
