    I certainly do. what did you have in mind?

    [–] "Inlet" Oil on canvas 24" x 30" colonelthawsage 1 points ago in Art

    It has sold, but I do have prints available. Let me know if you are interested.

    As in a reproduction of this exact image? Probably not as blowing it up so large would make it too pixellated. Largest print I can make of this right now is 11" x 14".

    If your asking if I'd be up to paint something fresh in a scene similar to this that is 6' x 8', then absolutely yes I definitely would! Please pm me if you are serious about commissioning me and we can work out the details.

    I do have a website with work for sale, robertbarkerfineart.com. Thank you for looking

    My website is robertbarkerfineart.com. I would love to do a Robert Barker (the 1700's one) style 3D panorama one day

    Not offended in the slightest. I have never been diagnosed and am not on any medications, so I guess I hope not, it sounds like hell to live with from what I've read about those things. Truth is that I really don't have any reference other than my own as to how people see the world, schizo/bi-polar or not. I just try to go about life with as much clarity and levelheadedness as I can and look at everything in a lighthearted way

    I have not, not sure what that is. Worth visiting?

    I love both, but the similarities between my work and theirs is not planned. All I'm really going for in a painting is to get it kinda realistic while implying a sense of playfulness/trippyness/whatever you want to call it. I can see where you draw the comparisons, especially in the lilypads. The fact that you are comparing me to those two masters, though I don't know if I can say its deserved, is honestly thrilling. Thank you

    As a huge Van Gogh fan, Thank you very much

    [–] "Inlet" Oil on canvas 24" x 30" colonelthawsage 1 points ago in Art

    Probably close to 5 months. Thank you.

    Thank you. In my experience, acrylics colors tend to dull a lot more than any oil paint. This may be because I've only used really cheap acrylics myself, but I have heard there is high quality paint out there. I'm sure if you tried using a brand a step up in quality from the student-grade, you would have better results.

    Another thing you could try, take two colors and slightly mix them. Not enough to muddy the colors (very important), but get it where it looks nice and swirly and the colors are still distinct. Use this mix of paint generously for outlining buildings, shadows, etc. and for areas around sources of light. This has an even cooler effect if using opposite colors. I hope this helps, have fun painting!

    Thank you. Most paintings, except for the smallest, take at least a couple of months. I'd say between 4 and 5 months for this one.

    Guess I have to try harder on my next painting... But seriously, that was a beautiful read. And surprisingly accurate. I really wish I could convey that experience you describe in a painting even half as well as you can in text. Thank you

    Lol I fuck up all the time! You should see some of my in-progress pictures. Just keep going and eventually it'll work itself out.

    This place is in the Adirondacks, though not in the town of Inlet. What is pictured is the inlet to a small lake, not too far from Lake George

    I do have prints for sale, whatever is not listed on Viralartgallery you can get through me, just send me a pm or email ([email protected]) with what you need. ( See my website and instagram pages for more paintings to choose from). ATM I have prints on 2 sizes of pearl photo paper, 8.5" x 11" or 11" x 14". Actual image size varies on the paintings dimensions, but its as close to the paper size as possible to allow for matting (All prints come in a 2 inch black mat frame). And free shipping to anywhere in the lower 48!

    Thanks for your interest
