Wow! That's amazing, L. As always, your work is awesome! Are you planning to be at Shore Leave (or Vidcon?) this year? [livejournal.com profile] gothphyle and I will be at Shore Leave and I'd love to see you.

Also, now totally into SGA. I'm going to look at your SGA pieces now! I'm completely enthralled with The Hewlett.

Hi V! Thanks for coming by. :-) I've been in touch with Kat and have told her I will likely not know until last minute if I can come to Vidcon. I'd really love to go, but right now it's not looking too positive. :-/ We had some wild weather here last week. Some branches came down on my car and damaged it, causing $1500 in body damage. With the costs of everything going up and my diabetic dog having a crisis every few weeks, money is getting tighter and tighter. I've promised to attend Media West and Eastern Media Con and that may have to be it for me.

That's great you're so into SGA--it's a wonderful fandom and they're lucky to have you! I understand being enthralled with The Hewlett, also. He's awesome. :-) I want to do more artwork of those guys. I just need to become independantly wealthy and then I can do whatever I want! ;-)

I hope you're doing well and hope to see you at some point. :-) Take care and thanks for coming by!

OK, this slipped right by me before. Honey, wow! His skin is so luminous. His hair? I want to reach out and run my hands through it. It's so *real*. Guh! Those lips, and nose - so perfect.
You've posted as a work in progress, was there a reason? Or did you just wanted a little feedback? :)Do you know what I mean?
I can't wait to see it complete. It's astoundingly beautiful.
Thank you.

Hi, Hon! Thanks for coming by! I hope you're doing well. :-) You're most welcome to let others know about this painting--I thank you and am most grateful. I posted it mainly to force myself to work on something. It had been so long since RL had let me work on anything long enough to finish it that I wanted to post *something*, even if it wasn't quite done. It was very nearly done before I had to stop working on it but hope to get back to it soon. :-) I'm so glad you liked it. I was rather happy with most of it, though I can see some things I need to change.

I've been away from LJ for quite a while and have missed a lot that has been going on. Hoping to get back to contributing to things soon. Take care and thank you again for coming by! :-)

MEEEEEP!!! This one completely slipped my attention despite having you on my f-list *slaps self* Thanks to [personal profile] crimson_37 who directed me here.

That is one damn gorgeous painting you did there. He looks so alive I can almost see him breath (that breathing fetish seems to be catching...). Thank you so much for sharing!

You *know* I'd like this one--given my icon. It's gorgeous, even if unfinished. Think you'll get it done in time for MWest? That way, I could see it in person!

It's terrific, L!

Oh this is fabulous - and I also have no idea how I didn't see it come through my flist! Bodie at his most haughty, isn't it - oh, the stories behind that look... *g* I shall wander off now and think of a few of them - thank you for posting!

Thank you--your kind comments mean a lot. :-) I don't know why it didn't show up on your friend's list--maybe it was a glitch in LJ. :-/ I'm glad you like the painting--I was absurdly pleased with it, too, and especially happy to have captured his arrogant expression. He does haughty so well. :-) Thank you so much for your comment!

Oh, wow. Like so many others, I completely missed this and...ooh, I wouldn't have for the world! It's that haughty look of Bodie's. The one I'm quite sure Doyle reacted to, like a goad, in the early days of their partnership.... *g* Just gorgeous, as always. Thank you for giving us a glimpse!

Hi Hon, thanks for coming by to comment. I don't know why this didn't show up on the friends-list. :-/ I don't use filters so I don't know why. But I'm glad you found it and came by. I've been so out of touch lately--lots of RL stuff going on and not very nice things happening that have kept me distracted. :-( I hope you're doing well--I'm way behind on returning emails, I'm afraid.

I'm so glad [livejournal.com profile] crimson37 pointed me this way. Your image of Bodie is wonderful - so much character - the arrogance, the slight sneer (OK, is he your Mr Darcy? Just askin' *g*), the physical beauty. It's very hard to look away from that. Thank you.

Hi! I hope you're doing well! I so enjoyed meeting you at ZebraCon. :-) Sorry I didn't get back with you sooner--my main hard drive went belly up and I had to reformat. I'm back up now and want to thank you so much for your kind words and for coming by to comment. :-) I'm so pleased you liked the painting. And yes, I think Bodie is my Mr. Darcy. ;-) Lewis Collins was just so beautiful and I enjoy painting both him and Martin Shaw. I'm working on one of Doyle for HG and will post it with her permission hopefully in a month or so.
Best wishes to you and thank you again for your comment! It's great to hear from you!

I wonder how many of us you make choosing a frame in their mind for this and longing to have that gorgeous canvas on their wall. I wish I could see it myself. Gorgeous painting, perfect, really a level for fan art on it's own! I especially like the different light shades you use for the skin. And I can't think of much more to do for the painting, it's perfect just now.
Have you artists whose works are inspiration for what you do? I'm thinking where I've seen similar style but I'm not sure at the moment.
Thank you for doing this and sharing it.

Thanks for your very kind comments and I'm very pleased you liked this painting. :-) It does need a few more things to finish it, but it shouldn't change much from the way it looks now. :-)

I don't have a particular painter that I try to emulate--I work with a lot of 18th and 19th century American portraits in my job every day. I have been trying to use the pigments and techniques I see by work closely with them. I was trying to get the feel of a 19th century painting and I think Bodie's expression helps give it that feel, too. :-)

Thanks for coming by and for your very nice comments!
