mhashem - No, thank you!
Pavel Sokov - Thanks! I really enjoyed your comment!
Blue Severin - Thanks man! How are your studies going?
lancer_idenoure - Wow thank you! Actually these paintings were done from my photo-reference... Depends on which ones you're talking about and what size... The shortest took a few days (to allow drying) and the latest one took a few months, off and on...
These are so great, makes me want to break out the oils.
This is just so beautiful. Totally gorgeous work. Congratualtions!
There is only a thread of comparison here but you might be interested in the Australian body artist Emma Hack http://www.emmahackartist.com/

Awesome paintings, man!
I clicked "Like" on your piece.
If you want to return the favour, feel free to check out my facebook art page.
For your new pieces:
I really enjoy the extra definition and sharpness the last 2 pieces have. The vibrancy in colour of the last one is bold, and a nice touch!
Great work. I just wish you had more models at your disposal since I am noticing the same one throughout, but you already were extremely skilled in getting girls you know to pose for you, so I guess I can't ask for more. I mention this because I am guessing getting your friends to pose nude for you is an art in and of itself. It must be a verbal challenge to make them comfortable.
So with that said, it seems that your personalibility and your art skills are both top notch!
Can't wait to see what you come up with in your next series. Good luck with the show tonight!

wow gorgeous work truley inspiring makes me want to do some figure drawing thank you
Thanks a bunch! On the subject of the model:
This whole series is based on the interaction between her as an individual and how I see her. If it were anyone else, the paintings would be completely different. I thought I was done with the series after "Bourgeon De Rose" but I dug in and was able to extract a few more pieces from the series.
I am very particular about who I choose to work with. First and foremost, the person has to be enthusiastic about working with me. That usually means they are familiar with my work and want to be part of what I plan on creating with them. I get to know the person before I decide on what I want to use them for, and for the most part it's something based on their unique characteristics. So by the time it gets to the posing, there's no "talking them into it." If they're not comfortable, I'm not working with them.
I think I'm a pretty nice guy!
Ok everyone, since people seem to like "Chromatella" so much, I decided to enter it in this month's Boldbrush competition. So please do me the favor of Liking it on the FASO website here, share it, etc. It would really be helping me out!
Wonderful paintings! I love them!
You do such sensitive work.
i need more of those.
"Gemini Molineux" 12x30 in. oil on linen.
Can you please make this into a wallpaper for 1920x1080!! I want this on my desktop!
WOW! "Ivory Fashion" and "Chromatella" are my absolute favorites! This is a brilliant series. Keep up the great work!
