Your paintings are very powerful and dynamic. I love the expressiveness and energy of your lines. Very beautiful and incredible work.

Don Gray said...

Thank you, Shelley, for those generous words.

I love the sensuous way you combine paint and charcoal Don. You have such a distinctive and dynamic style. Beautiful work.

Wonderful forms and marks. Very much like the lines combined with your extremely interesting shapes.

Don Gray said...

Katherine--thanks for your supportive words--very appreciated!

Don Gray said...

Thanks for your note, Shirley!

Don, I really like the conversations you have with your intuitive side (and those conversations are largely one-sided aren't they - us listening, mister intuition talking) but the painting that carries the most emotional value for me here is "Winterscape".

Thanks, Sheila. These drawings are pretty spontaneous and intuitive, as you note. I'd like for all my work to function more that way. It's always a challenge to walk that line between the intuitive and analytical, without falling completely into one or the other.
