I'm looking at these thinking "Damn, those look awfully familiar...."
Great to see your stuff here. Awesome, as always.
WOwieee, these are great works.
I feel sorry for myself that i dint drop in here earlier. hmmm. Rectifying the mistake now. If you could offer some advice, I have been trying to get in the gallery circuit, but its sort of hard, I always get told that my work doesnt meet the portfolio of the gallery, which is infact most of the times true, as my work is pretty outlandish in my country. Some Indian artists who have had some success with similar styles had to go abroad to get a name first.
I have also tried to contact international galleries, but the fact that I am not situated near them really comes in the way.
I will start to go to galleries again with my renewed portfolio soon, so if you have some words to help me please it would be cool.
Thanks and take care.

Hey Armand, nice work! I have areal soft spot for people camping out in crashed spaceships (I'm serious!). Awesome the way you integrated the photo inspiration. Have you seen the finished book?
'Pines and Seacats' is a lovely painting as is 'Dawn's Early Light'.
I'm rather taken with the latest Sci-Fi one - what's interesting about it is the 'feel', in that it is just that little bit more personal than the brassy, off-the-peg, mindlessly slick things one so often sees.
From Gegarin's point of view
There's a nice softness to your paintings that I don't normally associate with landscapes, and it makes your scenes very pleasant to look at.
All of these have a feeling of generic gumminess. Like stock photos. None of these feel like they are from a real place with distinct characteristics of rather they are made of the generic art-mark symbols used so often by the Saturday morning "how to paint a landscape" TV show or in the stacks of mass-produced factory canvases for sale in furniture stores.

gorgeous work i really really enjoy some of these you capture the lighting and mood of the scene so well especially the paintings of streams ever since i was a kid i have played in streams and these just took me back to when i was a kid
These are so impressive. Just like Jeff's, I can really sense that space because of your great use of value. Keep posting every once in awhile I love your choice of scenery.
Hey Armand, great work as usual. Love the Avalon harbor one. Many great memories from that place and I've seen that exact view.
Is the last one an old hotel in Pasadena? it looks very familiar.
Thank you so much for sharing your work. Inspiring!
