    You have some very lovely paintings and charcoals. Man, every picture is just another great piece. Keep it up! I really love these last few; the soft colors and strokes.

    It was a pleasure checking this out.

    I liked the charcoals in post 12 the best. I think these works could be very compelling indeed in you had a specific schema or modus operandi about how you make marks. Sometimes it looks like you are just going in whatever direction spontaneously occurred to you. Be calculating about the marks and I think you can hypnotize a lot of people.

    Wow Michael! You have a lot of diversity in your work. On the pinkish figure drawing, were you making those multiple marks sawing back and forth on purpose, or were you just trying to work your way into a groove? I like the modeling on her face.
