  • i love this so much, there is a certain sadness in these but also a sense of wonder for me

    • i think a lot of the eeriness comes from not being able to see what the people are looking at

  • Wow.

  • ben kelly


  • with this series of works I feel like I could be looking into a fantasy film that could easily be on the brink of turning into a horror, Great works to view while the wind is blowing and Autumn is in full swing.

    • Joe

      Yes! Or a great indie video game.

      • Oh what an incredible game that would be!

  • Gabriel Barbaro

    These are very evocative. My favorite is the tree trunk in winter… and the Autumn scene with the old train. Great work!

  • The solitary figures remind me a bit of the people in the paintings of Hopper. They have the same quality of detachedness to them.

  • Marie V Fox

    Haunting. Absolutely adore.

  • beauty and melancholia, I feel like being at the limit of the canvas looking at it, one feet in and one feet out.
