Hello everyone, my name is Roger and my hobby for many years has been as a bassist. Unfortunately, carpal tunnel has acted up again and I find it very difficult to play. As a result, I've decided to pick up a hobby with which I have absolutely no experience or talent. Mostly as an experiment to see if I can become a mediocre artist in time. Richard Feynman is my hero and, later in life, he started to paint and actually became fairly accomplished.
I don't mind posting my paintings here. It's not embarrassing for me since I have no experience. As long as this holds interest for me, I will continue to post new paintings. Thanks to everyone who replies.
Actually there is something very interesting about them. Very psychological.
"Interesting," and, "psychological," are just about the best compliments I could hear right now. Thank you very much.
I think that these are powerful paintings. The blue painting is one that I believe is a real grabber.
I hope painting continues to "hold your interest"— as you put it.
Thank you Paul! My friends seem to like these and #2 just sold to my tattoo artist for $50. That's more than I can make in one night with 7 years of bass experience. So yeah, I'm interested.
Here's #3 (Self) (The oranges aren't as bright in real life. Also, I think the perspective is wrong, but I'll work on that.)
I doubt I'm getting any better, but this is becoming very therapeutic for me, which is something I dearly needed. Back to the zombies...
Something wrong with this. I just don't like it. Hair? Eyes?
i like the perspective, it gives a feeling that everything is going to slide off the painting.
I like them all...they are very bold.. I like the perspective...you have an interesting style...the shapes you use, the colours, the arrangement...your paintings grab my attention, in a good way. Makes me wonder what you are thinking about when you paint these. They make me curious.
I like them. Keep it up.....
