    Hello Fair Artist of brass lamps and pretty things,

    We have been watching you. We are artist also. At least that’s what they call us. You may even know us. We’d like to invite you to a member of our very Private Club. We’re very selective and only an elite few are welcome on our hallowed grounds. We pick you.

    We even have a little ‘chit chat’ room just for the likes of you. It’s rightfully called Dante’s Pub. But when your enter BEWARE! You are entering the abyss of the artist mind! You may not find your way out.

    You’re welcome to watch from afar while drinking your brew or pull up a chair and join us for a little chat. Be sure and register and then log in. After all, this is a very private club. We don’t allow just any wanderer in our midst.

    Don’t dilly dally now! It wont cost you a pence. Check out The Artist Challenge and Dante’s Pub- that is if your daring and think yourself worthy to be amongst the souls we’ve claimed?

    Farewell…until we hear from you,

    this is pretty amazing. I love the color combionation, and uh, oh, that teeny tiny chain.

    I enjoy these unusual new palette-this brings mystery on your “oriental” direction. Beautiful piece Jeff!

    Thanks Patty! The chain was, of course, my favorite part of painting it…

    Thanks Pierre; I’m challenging myself to bring in the influence of Asian/Middle Eastern design without always being completely overt about it. I’m not sure it’s totally successful, but it is very interesting to try.
