Here are some comments from different artists & people around the world so far:

From Iceland

"Hallo Bob

I was looking through your painting and I like most of them the Sunburst. Where the flowers are near us. I think you should take the details and let them grow, and keep the details near you. If you understand what I mean.

And keep on ! This is nice paintings.

Best regards, Álfheiður Ólafsdóttir Art-Iceland"

"Hi Bob,
Thank you very much for contacting me. I checked out your site and really enjoyed it. I particularly like your painting "My point of view" as I relate very much to the concept of art and the role it plays in the artist's life as you portrayed it in that work. In my opinion, the most important thing about being an artist is to keep at it. Never give up, even when it seems unimportant compared to other things going on. That way the creative spirit will be happy with you and keep sending you inspiration because you are working at realizing the ideas it gives you. I will check out your website again in the future so I can follow your work. HAVE A GREAT DAY.
Regards,
Jacquie"

"Hi Bob,


" I still wished I had the ambition and dedication to put together a show like you are doing. There'a lot of work to do not only withthe paintings, but arranging the location and getting things framed."

Hello Bob,

I wished I had the enthusiasm and drive that you display here in your work. I've been an illustrator for more than 30 years, and have just recently taken up oil painting to escape the drudgery of painting someone else's ideas. Your work reminds me of someone trying to totally express thier own vision of the world in an honest and free way. For me, that has become a very dificult, if not impossible task, since I have been trained for so many years to render detail on top of detail to please clients. Even my oil work displays that illustration tendencies that I don't want, and am trying to shed.

Art is made of up millions of forms and doesn't have to have the pin-point architectural feel and exhaustive detail and smooth rendering that many artists create. That form is laborsome and draining. If I was you, I would continue to explore the forms of expression I see in your work, and enjoy yourself in the process. The minute your art becomes work, you will know you are heading in the wrong direction.
Be careful in who you ask about what people think of your art. They may be in love with what they do, and think any other way of painting is not any good. All art is good and it's the variety that makes it that way. If everyone painted the same, how boring would that be?

I liked the excitement and honesty of your work more than anything else. There is drama and subtly everywhere and would encourage you to explore the methods you have already tried and see how far you can take things.

Thanks for the email and keep in touch.

Mick
