Thanks Rebecca and Samira! It's great to hear from fellow artists :)

Hey Kd, thanks for your kind words about my work! That's wild, I really didn't notice, but now that you mention it.....I think the womb symbology makes this piece (pun intended, haha) even stronger, if that's possible! Your Dad sounds like a character! Never a dull moment, I bet! You're right, people get so freaked out by the magnificent creation that is the human form, especially the female form. Most people do not know that spiritual and sensual energy comes from the same Kundalini source. There is power in that knowledge, so it has been suppressed, but I can tell by your work that you are fully aware! ;) oh, my son and I found the toy soldier! Still looking.......

Hi Rebecca! Thank you so much for your comments, and I really love your work! Yeah, actually this one has had some pretty awkward responses from people. I was having dinner with my dad and brothers a couple years ago when I was still painting this and my dad asks me what I'm working on and I say "The really big one." he goes, "You mean the one of the guy crawling into the big vagina?!?" "Yeah! That's the one!" Granted, it's a brain (as I hope you can see) but it does also symbolize the vagina or the womb. The moon is where the clitoris would have been if I had painted it that way. It's not meant as anything lewd though, It's just fascinating how mere nudity, or even symbolic reproductive organs, still get demonized even in the 21st century. I'm just glad it can be comical now, instead of dangerous. It would be even better if it weren't unnecessarily distracting from more developed paths of thought.

Thank you so much for the feature in Unique Surrealism Tisha McGee!

Is that a cell phone? Cool. Still looking........;)

Wow! Ultra cool, Kd! Love the detail, especially in the foreground! Actually, I love every fascinating detail! I have a few pieces that I know for sure scared the family! Did this one alarm any kin? Haha Oh, wow, just noticed the feet becoming roots! A psychedelic feast for the eyes! ;) L/F

woah. intense.

wow! fantastic concept and beautiful image!

Very cool work! It makes you think, gets your brain humming!
