I love how he looks like he just said, "Hello there. Just walking around my house in my boxers with my bunny. Would you like some wine?"

The rabbit's expression is priceless, he rather be somewhere else.

You couldn't be more right. Jsun got some pretty bad scratches on his stomach from that bunny.

You've made an ordinary kitchen look like a song. Sweet and pure and real. Would love to know how much your art costs.

Wow, that's quite the compliment! Thank you - making work that sings has always been a goal of mine.

I'll note you about prices if you wish.

Hi Reuben- this (mine) is a very late reply. I would truly be interested to hear how much your work sells for- it is a standard of sorts to me- in the best imaginatively and technically and aesthetically-category- and therefore it is of interest to me. For example- If I were to aspire to a high quality realism, being motivated by work such as yours, I could only really do it if the time invested/devoted was rewarded reasonably. Anyway, Reuben- I would much appreciate a note about this. Thank you muchos! I hope I have not mislead you to think that I can afford your work, though- which I sincerely doubt!

Hey David, I sent you a note about my prices. As for the cost/benefit variable all I can say is that I don't do it for the money. I think the last time I worked it out I make less than $15/hour when i paint.

I think that's why I like your work- it doesn't seem "commercial"- and I thank you for this!

I love this series of yours. An elegant and evocative mix of profound and humorous. So, I'm left wondering... in a series of "nudes" this guy isn't actually nude? If he decided he wasn't comfortable going "Full-Monty", then it's a very interesting bit of insight...

Well, in this particular case he had no issues going fully nude. I made the decision to keep him in his undies because I felt it went along with the whole scene. It really spoke about his lighthearted and almost comic nature. The white underwear with the rainbow stripes did more to communicate his personality than just the full nude ones... Also, I've wrestled with calling these "nudes." To me these people are more "naked" than nude.

Is that an Obama mug behind the rabbit?
(Not that it really matters :P )

Good work!
