“Creative process is an intellectual, philosophical, and spiritual endeavor that I am absolutely in love with. Without depicting life literally, I seek a poetic interpretation of a moment involving the human figure in its infinite variety of gesture and action. ” — Andre Kohn, Russian-born artist currently residing in America.

For me, #8 is the winner! Its sophistication draws me to it.
The runner-ups would be #1 and #6, in that order.
And you? Which ones do you like, Vincent?
I like #6 most.
And I keep staring at #10, hoping the strap will fall from her shoulder. 😛
Haha! Well y’know, it already has fallen but oh! 😉
And I was thought the hatted ladies would steal your heart…?
*Ignore the “was”, there.
My true love is literature.
As is evident in your work.
Personally, I like no. 4 and also no. 5. They’re all very good though, so it’s very tough choosing a favourite. 🙂
How are the frogs, Irish boy?
You got that email I sent last week, no?
I’ve got you’re email, but I’m sorry I couldn’t reply sooner. I’ve been without Internet in my student accommodation, which is frustrating when you’re a blogger!
As for frogs, one has made it to the news – apparently one was sent flying during a rocket launch and caught on camera! 🙂 I hope it survived though.
I have my doubts. 😛
Poor frog! On the plus side, it’s one small step for man, one giant leap for frogkind!
I can not pick a favorite…I love them all!!
I love the rough strokes in these paintings and especially the feeling of rain. But, something in #1 speaks the strongest to me. Thanks for sharing.
I love his style!!!
These paintings are all so gorgeous! Very sensual and provocative.
I heard it’s winter in Australia.
Sorry about the delay! It’s now Spring in Australia, and the weather is amazing.
