i love your work!

my first thought at this: submerge, current, water, swimmers, reflection...
one thing about art is we never know if we interpret correctly.
does that matter?

ps: i still truly! want to buy some of your work! life + time keep having their way with me + i am bogged down... can you email me {again, please!} your info: how you would like payment, where to, osv... thank you!

i would say your interpretation is dead on!!! these 'heaps' represent many things to me...they're about recognizing fears, realizing what risks we're willing to take and what we're just not quite ready to face yet...and the anticipation of throwing caution to the wind and just letting go.

but, i like what you said.
and i'll email you, i promise! ;D

(basically, all i could think was - "wanna bite it" but for the reasons you said. ;D)

taken directly from a found los angeles times plastic poster...the other side was exactly the same, only with an orange background..a color i'm quite sure you could identify with all that fancy pants acrylic speak.. ;D lately..though...greens have really been freaking me up, in a very good way.

Re: art thing
you know, 10, maybe as little as 5 years ago i would've chopped those two little white bits out....cuz, weeeeeell.....they just didn't look like the other kids. so, yah....i'm not surprised in THE LEAST an artist extraordinaire like yourself would notice those shy little monsters..
