Hi folks. This is the latest. It's big (1.4 metres wide) and it's called 'Transition'. That probably won't mean anything to anyone, but I'd love to hear your comments.

Actually, I just measured it. It's nearly 2 metres wide! The scale of it does something else...

haha I love it Lewis! So.... is it a gift for someone or is it meant for a special spot on your own wall?

Thanks everyone, for the encouragement. Actually it's in good old oil on canvas and done by hand.

A special spot on the wall? Well, I was thinking of using it as a wall. It needs a big space...

That is just amazing. I'm jealous of the talent.

Hi ART. Thanks for the comment. I just had a look at Kenny Scharf's site. Thanks for suggesting him. This guy really enjoys his work! I think I'm more introverted - typical artist, more of it coming from pain and searching than pure fun.

No problem, you're not obliged to but of course I appreciate any comments - and please regard it as OK to criticise, hopefully constructively.

I'm not a great fan of Disney by any means, but there were a whole load of circumstances and things that came together to make this picture, and it just seemed to fit.

I don't generally go into those types of explanations, though, as I have my experience doing it, and anyone looking at it will have their own - and it's all just as valid. So, if you hate it - great. If you love it - great! I just hope it does something for someone...

Awesome. I love large pieces. It kind of reminds me of a Robert Williams painting.

Nice.
