Thank you guys. Let me explain how “I” feel about my own paintings. First, I have no training of any kind in any field of artwork, tho Lord knows how I always wished to attend the School of Visual Arts here in NY, so I could stop stumbling around every time I pick up a brush and having to figure out what to do each step of the way every time I start a new painting. Somehow it works out, tho I think an artist from the past is having fun taking over my brushes because sometimes even I look at the work I produce and wonder in amazement how in the heck do I do that??? I know that sounds rather, well I can’t think of the right word for it, in any case it sounds “awful” to say!

But when people ask me how I can paint like that, my response is always, "I have no idea! what I am doing; it’s like I am watching a video of somebody else’s hands doing the work! " And I am completely mesmerized the whole time! Understand? Think that is what they call being “in the zone?” Know what I mean?


See my reply. But I thank you!!

You are so talented!
The face is so lifelike, and so are the fabrics, and everything else.
