Hey. Super Cool images you make. So alive and rich in details.

"Ironic and ambiguous"?
Well, one could be "Cold That Thought" or perhaps even "Blue Media", a reference to Facebook!
In any case, wauh, you got my attention! :)

It reminds me a lot of loss-cast casting process for portrait sculpture.

Well, I hope this tittle won't upset you or .. make you feel like I'm mocking you, and I reaally like  your work so .. there it is :"SLIME". It just screams this word to me .. and  it's a disgusting (the title), but it feels like a strong contradiction to the piece, though somehow perfectly connected. I hope i helped.

Probably too literal & wordy, but maybe it will spark something...

Gorgeous work but with all due respect, you've painted this painting 9 times already. You're an amazing painter don't get me wrong but please sir, paint something else. You have incredible skill. Show me you can paint more than just people covered in white paint.

This dripping paint series is a step in his evolution as an artist, and he has every right to go through this phase and to explore the subject matter as it intrigues him. You don't have to look at them, and he has nothing to prove to you.

Personally, I'm enjoying seeing these portraits and how his work evolves in this very specific area. Each one is different in colour, lighting, mood, etc..

Correct. He's just been doing this for months. He's a professional he can handle it. Make no mistake i'm not doing this to boost my ego, nor do i have any beef against him. I'm saying this in fact to help him grow. Criticism is part of the art world. Not to tear someone down but to help them grow. Criticism hurts i know that, but it's to make him stronger as an artist. Like fellow athletes and coaches wanting each other to become stronger and perform well. That's all i'm saying.
