Love these 3 last paintings Todd, so mysterious! The lighting and the texture of the rusted colors are simply perfect, great work.

Thanks so much Pierre,

This is not exactly a new direction for me but certainly the largest amount of time spent focussing on this subject matter and exploring this unique lighting...sort of inspired by Caravaggio lighting. I love the drama you can get by changing the light source, All my best to you Pierre, I showed my wife your work and her jaw is still open in awe!

These toy cars are great, Todd. Full of mood and mystery--nice work!

Thanks so much Don, good to hear from you my friend...I just got my Dick Blick catalogue and I saw you on the cover...gorgeous work.
All the best,
