Nice paintings/collages/constructions, Erich! Very moody and a bit scary as any peek at the id must be. They remind me a little of later Dorothea Tanning, which is definitely a compliment. Also Roberto Matta in certain moods. Why doesn't anybody mention Roberto Matta anymore?

wow, I just saw this comment, and only a year later! Thanks Gary, I mention Matta all the time and revere him, I think part of the problem is his son has so entwined their names that you can't even tell which is which so people don't bother which is a shame. He's one of my painting idols, so to speak,. I have to find Dorothea Tanning now.
