Amazing surreal works.


For a self taught artist, you have acquired a high degree of maturity in art. I salute you for the great art that you create!


Hi Moonsman, sorry for this late reply, I wasn't able to visit my own site for quite sometime. Thanks for your comments in my works and saying you liked my abstract and mixed media works. However you found my other works not at par with my previous two sets. I would just like to explain that those still life and nude sets are my regular sketching and drawing exercises so as not to forget my basics in doing art. Thanks for the visit. Your brother in Art-Buds Convocar


from one surrealist to another....LOVE YOUR WORK!


I really love your work.


thanx a lot! love your work. have a beautiful day..


MOONSMAN your way too kind ! your critiques > extremely heart warming alot like your world thanks moonsman


That's some wild ideas, I love them. Even like the black and white works, not always easy working in monotones, traditional scrimshaw is like that. I wish more of my clients could expand their likes in subjects outside of realism. I may try doing some surrealism on pendants, see how many folks would like them. Best wishes to you.


Welcome to the site. nice works.


Thank you very much for your thoughts. I have been traveling for the better part of a years, so please forgive me for not responding sooner. Whether you are serious or not, I am pleased that my work has sparked such an emotion out of you. I appreciate you taking the time out to view my page Sir... Mark
