Thanks for the fav.  I love your work - I gave up doing expressionist work because no-one liked what I painted in the that style - I found it sooo difficult too - I am a neat painter and it was so hard to let go

Yes, funny how difficult it is to let go, that's my main aim - get away from realism to do something more "personal". but in the end whatever we do ends up being personal, so might as well let the brushes take us where they like :-D I definitely like expressionism and I think you are very good at it, just as you are with "neat" painting! :-)

"hate the smoke, not the smoker" (or something like that) :-) thank you very much!

That's kind of true, but so many smokers are rude about where they smoke and others throw their butts and ashes as well as second-hand smoke out of their car windows while waiting at stoplights.  Sorry for the rant.  You welcome, and work is really excellent.

Flatté :-) je mets pas mal de matière sur mes toiles, un peu comme freud (toute proportions gardée). Merci en tout cas!

Thanks! It was painted in winter, the light outside was cold and the shades in my flat were nice and warm, hence the warm tones for the shadows and the cold blue light of the winter afternoon :-) As for the green tones... not enough vitamins? :-D

Wow this is raw and raunchy (In a good way), it depicts real life and real issues to me. Just raw and wonderful how you've captured the human emotion in this! <3's!!

Thanks. I paint with knives mostly, and add details with brushes at thee end, it gives it a "rougher" look :-)
