    Well since my time off - I've had a lot of time for my hobbies, which include painting....and just to make things clear, I'm not an "artist" as a lot of people like to pretend they are....I just see painting as a hobby, not a lifestyle.

    That's such an awesome phoenix (it is a phoenix, right?). I don't care for tattoos, but if I did I would certainly get one to look like that painting.

    I like the others too, but the phoenix is great. Looking forward to seeing others.

    I like the first one - something in you speaking through your strokes. Go there in your head and do more!

    I visited the website and I love the one of the Phoenix emerging from the sun, and also the one with the snake.

    You're very talented. I'll check your site periodically for updates.

    one:

    I love the name " Pogo, " for it is associated with vunderbar memories:

    a: Po[n]go

    b: Pogo - musician:



    c: Pogo

    d: P. o. g. o.

    e: Pogo.com:

    ... and, to answer your question, that image speaks to me. I love and this I kid you not. the image inspires a subjective account to how I see myself. there is such dualism in the depicted creature; it makes me smile.
