1. My dear Steerpike!

I guess I'm an old fuddy-duddy, because I mainly like your pencil on paper drawings.

Obviously, you have considerable talent. It's just that I like simple, classic drawings over the other more elaborate pictures.

3. Peg!

I hope you are doing well! It is always a pleasure to "hear" from you.
I do like the pencil drawings best too!

4. Thanks Hunter!

I just needed a little boost. I haven't done any old school art in a long time. My new job pretty much has me busy doing graphic design banners with Photoshop. I do enjoy the process of that, but it isn't the same thing....

5. Some of those pen and ink pieces are quite good

I find the dolphin one interesting, but most of the color work lacks the definition of form that your black and white pieces are so successful with. In fact the color ones look like you can't decide whether to model the form or paint shapes with color(ala Matisse). Maybe try focusing on one or the other. Keep up the good work.

6. Your pencil and pen and ink work are wonderful

And although I like some of your paintings, you seem to be searching for a style and haven't found it. Don't let that deter you. Nothing wrong with exploring.
