    Default We all scream. And then it gets awkward...

    Hi Ross,

    I just clicked "Reply" without realizing there's no good reply to your post! Anything I might say would be belaboring any point!

    So instead, I wrote a couple volumes about my approach to Art, and then deleted it because that's not a good answer to a post that's not a question.

    I'll have to check out Alex Colville,Ross, thanks for the tip!

    And I think it's a misconception that work can only be hard and unpleasant.

    I agree and your icecream is a fitting image -- although I worry the cone might be soggy!

    Your body of work as seen in your gallery threads very clearly expresses the fun your have with your work. It is inspiring. Do you have any examples of more gloomy images you've created? Fine if you haven't - I'm just wondering.


    My favorite Colville painting is >> Pacific 1967 <<. It seems to reference the idea of 'sword & scale' in assessing what might be a suicidal (or formerly suicidal) moment. Colville would take a several months to a year of highly disciplined work to produce an image like that. Interestingly, Kubrick's horror movie 'The Shining' referenced four paintings by Colville.

    Default Re: We all scream. And then it gets awkward...

    The result of a tutorial on sculpting, therefor this is not my creation work, but I did give it the patina before rendering.


    Sort of reminded me of a Monopoly piece.

    Default Aliens that are unwise to stop at the border

    This is the sort of modeling work that if you make a mistake, no one notices!

    These are the Modoshawan delegates arriving on Earth in the movie "The Fifth Element".

    Both, unbelievable works, Gary! Really great! Don't know what else to say about the work you put out.

    Default My 2nd video this year

    Video counts as non-Xara art, doesn't it?
