Fantastic paintings of course... But if you don't mind me asking: what makes you pick the subjects? Are they emotional attachments, do they convey (personal) meaning, or is it merely the challenge or even just money?
It changes a bit from painting to painting but there is always a reaction to the subject on my part, whether emotional or just aesthetic. Some paintings include artifacts from my life. In the end I want to make paintings that I want to see exist.
what i like most about you is the way you figure out how to get the exact character of the things you draw. i am amazed by the way you have done the ice here. technically you are one of the best i have ever seen.
