GUEST COMMENTARY

The following commentary comes from visitors to my site who have contacted me and kindly given me permission to use their commentary.

I will enter commentary that is sent to me at doloresmarusarz@gmail.com.

THANK YOU!

I got into your website and found that your work is wonderful; I love the brightness and the clarity of it. Would like to someday see how you do that. I especially liked "Raccoons" and "A Dog and His Man."

The paintings you do are so lifelike and realistic. The wildlife scenes are so dramatic. You make the outdoors come alive on canvas. What a wonderful talent--a well-kept secret.

What a treat to view your paintings. What a talent you have. :-) I'm so glad my friend mentioned looking at your web site as a stress reducer today.

Thank you so much for letting me have a look at your work. I am stunned! I especially like the river painting and could probably look at it all the day. My wife had told me how much she enjoyed your art when it was at a gallery she visited. Now I know she has good taste, too. My commentary pales in comparison to your art!

I have just seen the web site and I am impressed! I love the layout and design--simple, straightforward, uncluttered with the bells, whistles, and doodads that over-eager amateurs bung their sites up with.

And as for the work itself--darn you're good! I had never actually seen your paintings before. I knew that they were representational and that you frequently worked in oils, but that was about the limit of my knowledge.

These are extraordinarily potent works of art (I particularly love the 1921 faimily portrait and the "View From Lauderdale Court"). Your use of color is masterful--vivid and exuberant and I am amazed time and again at your ability to invest a seemingly tranquil scene with brooding power. There is a kind of indefinable intensity in the way you depict things. I would call it a sense of disquiet, but I think that's too simple. It's almost like the way Pizzaro used color to convey a heightened sense of reality--but then again I have no idea how he did it either.

I eagerly look forward to seeing more!

Hello Ma'am,
 
I just happened to find your website today.  When I saw your paintings I realized that you have a true gift, the gift of creation.  I'm really completely amazed, and feel moved in my heart to see your work in person.  I liked all of those paintings.  Each one is so unique in its own right. 
 
I congratulate you for having such an outstanding skill at hand.  I will continue to visit your website.
