Negative thinking is subtle and deceptive.
It wears many faces and hides behind the mask of excuses.
It is important to strip away the mask and discover the real, root emotion.

Danke - ist zu Zeit in New York (war vorher in Dallas ausgestellt).

WOW! Du Star :-))

habe ähnliches Arrangement mit einem Freund in Seattle - die stellen meine Sachen aus wenn sie selber ausstellen. Erspart mir Bilder hin und her schicken. Lagerplatz ist bei mir sowieso knapp.

Ich will auch in zewi Jahren in America ausstellen, muss aber noch etwas finden :-D

Sehr schön und kreativ ^^ I like it.

Upvoted and resteemed! What a contrast between the 2 characters.

thank you @kathleenscarboro - you know I love your work! Seems you took to steemit like a fish to water, doing very well, as you should and deserve! The other artists from our circles should look at you and the success you are having here as an incentive to join us here.

Well I have understood that you really have to spend some time on the site once you put your post up, or nothing much happens. Today was special; I got upvoted by a whale.

seen that - happened to me only once, right after New Year. Some posts are not bad though, can't really complain. I am not in it for the money. In fact, I am more concerned about my steem power for upvoting others. Seems like today, I pretty well shot my wad.

Yes I keep upvoting too much too and my steem power is low.

Ich mag es immer sehr, wenn zwei Extreme miteinander verbunden werden. Die Intention dahinter ist hier gnadenlos gut umgesetzt

Danke, "gnadenlos" - ja, das sollte im Untertitel sein 😜

Digging the surreal, Gigerish style. Great to see such art here. I hope we can build a community of serious artists on Steemit. Please consider checking my profile and following, I work in similar field ;)

cool, there are quite a few good artists on steemit, if you like mine, then check out @gric - he is a good friend and exactly on the same track.....
eventually, we will be legion, haha

Yes there are, I had to look thoroughly and let aside all the "moneyposters" at first and finnally I can find people like you, showing quality. I am a long time huge fan of @gric since I discovered him through the book "Biomech Art: Surrealism, Cyborgs and Alien Universes" where we're both featured.

And yes, can't wait to have a solid "dark" art group :)

lets hope so. A lot of dark artists I know, but not that many on here. Yes, I am familiar with many in this book. Right now I am exhibiting with some of them in the travelling exhibition Magical Dreams IV (organized by the Bator Gallery in Poland).

Curious about the exhibition, I hope you'll post some pictures ;)

Awesome bro, great work. I also love the quote

thanks - the quote fit to some degree with my thoughts about the drawing. Maybe also a bit of personal memories. A nice face as a mask for what really is behind it.

Dear friend! Next time also use #artzone and follow @artzone to get an upvote on your quality posts!

OK, I might use that one occasionally. There are only 5 tags allowed, so choices have to be made.

Wenn du ein Instagram hast und solche Dinge veröffentlichst, sag mir, dass ich dir folgen soll !!! oder wenn du Follower gewinnen willst, könntest du meinen Beitrag dazu lesen (Ich würde das lieben, ich werde dein Fan sein, haha) Ich würde es sehr schätzen und es würde dir helfen etwas zu wissen, das du vielleicht nicht weißt, danke weiter so !!!

Ich bin nicht sehr aktiv auf Instagram, habe kaum je was eingestellt. Bin sowieso zu viel auch auf Facebook.

schön! Ich liebe die Form der Frau kombiniert mit der Kreatur, sehr gut! Besonders mag ich den Stil von Schwarz und Weiß

since these past 5 years or so, I had done much more drawing than painting.

Incredible. Disturbing. Thank you. :)

thank you - yes, some of my work is.

Hopperla - geile Arbeit , feinst umgesetzt
sowohl von der Thematik als auch als Motiv -

Danke - ist schon 3 Jahre her, aber diese Zeichnung ist schon fast so lang in der USA. Anfänglich bei einer Ausstellung in Dallas, aber dann weiter gesandt nach New York. Ein Freund dort lagert einige meiner Werke, stellt meist aus wenn er ausstellt, New York, Montreal etc. Hab ähnliches Arrangement mit einem Freund in Seattle.

I literally stared at this piece for about 15 minutes. Soooo much to see here. Great work!
