Your style reminds me considerably of Edward Hopper, I love the underlying feeling of solitude in your work. I look forward to seeing more in the future.

Thank you for your comment; as you can probably guess, Hopper is one of my favorites, but I may be even more antisocial than he least he put people in his scenes.

I looked at your profile but, alas, found no artworks...are you an artist? Some of your favorites caught my eye, and I'll look further when I get a chance.

I have little former training, but would be glad to answer any questions you have.

You honour his style well and I personally find your ability to tell a story without the addition of people a particularly rare and admirable talent.
An aspiring artist and Art History student more so, I use DA for inspiration and reference material more than anything else but I hope to upload a few pieces of my concentration for this year in the coming weeks. I very much appreciate your interest however and if any questions of your techniques or inspiration arise, I'll be sure to contact you.

Hey Mark, I just wanted to write and say that your artwork is incredible. The way you use light to create these beautiful, sometimes eerie scenes is very cool, and I even used your work as a basis for a report/project I'm doing in my art class. Your short testimony on House on Cris St. is also very inspiring, it's so great knowing the story of another Christian artist!
Can't wait to see more, I'll be watching for more of your work in the future. :)

I have noted an odd phenomenon on dA lately...dozen of new "watchers", all who signed up today, and have no deviations, and never favorite anything, they just watch! Why and how they are finding me, I don't know. I suspect that this is either some kind of spamming, or dA is robo-signing fake members to increase advertising revenue. Or maybe they're trying to butter up non-core members in order to get some money out of them.

 Has anyone else experienced this?
