Your paintings have so many layers.

Thomas Sheridan said...

Superb. A less meaty version of Francis Bacon I think. Better actually.

ande,
thanks actually there really are quite a few layers, I kept adjusting color and composition, but I know what you mean, somtimes I kind of crawl into this place, to get what I need for the painting.
thanks

Thomas...
You have know idea what it means to be mentioned let alone compared to Francis, He is one of my favorite painters, I could look at his work for hours
apperciate your words
