      Wow, you sure have been a busy artist even though you are so busy with other activities. (I read your whole bio.)

      That first painting up above reminds me of one I saw at a friend's house on Maui. She had painted a huge bird in oranges and reds (approximately 4 feet x 3 feet) and it was angry. Not something one forgets easily.

      Fun artist statement.

      Superb work man, and cute kid too. My family is my muse as well, although I'm afraid art world elite find that inspiration trite, I find them to be redeeming and healthful to today's artist. Keep up the good work, and thanks for inspiring many of us to not shy away from the online world of art/creative marketing.

      I loved the one that is unnamed - has what looks like gossamer threading across it. "A tangled web" perhaps, or "Spiders host", or "Silken dreams" perhaps - the last dedicated to Ayla.

      You are quite the multi-talented person there, SF. Great stuff. All good, but I really like A Terrible Authority.

      Of course, as a member of the 60DC2 I have to tell you not to quit your day-job -(night job), but your art is fantastic!

      Amazing artwork! I think I liked #2(3) the best of the paintings, but Ayla has the greatest smile ever, and as such you know is your most exceptional work of art! What a perfect picture of your muse!

      Very interesting art and I like it. Your baby is just the sweetest looking most adorable child. Enjoy, as they only stay that size for a little while.

      Love your art, Josh. Some of it actually reminds me of some my mom's paintings - weird!

      Ayla is getting big and she's beautiful!!

      Thanks Aya! her name is close to yours actually - Ayla!

      I really need to get around to getting much better photo or scan of that one, its very textural, even has glass microscope slides integrated into it...

      But the cobblers kids have no shoes and all
