  1. Wow, Stan! These are all really nice. You have obviously been quite busy. It's almost too much to take in all at once, so I'll be back to absorb some more wonderfulness soon. Happy Creating!


  2. Wow! I really like these .. especially the black and white ones .. are they charcoal? Lots to look at in those :)

  3. Wonderful Stan! Very inspiring! Heading to the studio now...

  4. That's a great series, my favorite is "apparition", the composition rocks.

  5. The first image brought me right in from my feeder (Follow at blogger). Then I hit your new banner and B A M !! This blog looks awesome, Stan.

    Your art is very rich, and I enjoy exploring your ideas through your works.

  6. Stan, These latest works are all so stunningly beautiful, complex, detailed, well composed. As always, your work just blows me away.
    Your creative depth is inspiring.

  7. Don - Yes I've been busy and I wish it was all related to art making, but unfortunately I've taken on a retail job that is consuming me. All that being said, I still have the drive. Thanks!

    Rosalie - Thanks! The drawings are done with various sized rollerball ink pens and I lick my fingers and smear for tonal effects, something I started doing in life drawing in college and the instructor, a traditionalist, hated it. I love to smear.

    Tonya - I'm glad you're inspired! Now go get to work in your towering studio! If you only knew the view from my studio.

    Maggie - Thank you, I so admire your art and life in the Keyes.

    Casey - Your comments mean a lot to me and your work is a constant source of inspiration.

    Pam - Thank you for the great comments and I'm flattered that you find my work inspiring. I find your love of life and art inspiring.

  8. I'm intrigued by the movement, power and feeling you are able to reveal in your watercolors. It seems to me that it's hard work orchestrating wonderful works like these. The results are unique and magical, Stan!

  9. Peggy - Thanks! The drawings are almost always done in the morning and the paintings are done at all times, but mostly during late afternoon-evening. I don't know what that has to do with anything. I don't know about it being hard work because I love to do it so much it takes the pain out. Sort of.

  10. As always, I'm blown-away by your work and strong compositions. Fabulous!

  11. Liv - Thanks, I love a good mystery.

    Kathy - Thank you, glad you're back.

  12. As always your work knocks me out! BAM !!

  13. Eva - Thanks, I'm so sorry I've been quite the neglectful blogger. I'll fill you in later and hopefully will be back in blogger mode here soon.
