Your painting "The Decision" is definitely very moving. Before I began to explore the painting, the first over all reaction I have is...that you have great technique. I think your brushstrokes are used in such a way, especially in the figure, to convey what you are trying to relate to the audience. The smoothness of the curtains and other objects around him make the quick, sharper strokes on his face and clothes sends out that feeling he is having a rough time at it. The brilliance of the light casting into the room, like a light from a high power, is very striking, especially on his face. Fabulous work!

John, this makes me feel like my heart is filling with tears! Even the colors portray the bleakness of this man's situation. The painting tells the whole story, and at the same time, none of it. Amazing work!

It speaks to the need for an open and honest discourse on euthanasia in this 21st century.

As a fine art painting it is beautiful execution, but I think the subject matter, or idea, is horrible. Just terrible.

This is so sad. I see his pain. I feel his anguish! Hopefully, he has decided to live on! Very emotional painting.

Let us pray the phone rang; someone came to the door; anything to divert this terrible event from happening. My family has been hit hard by suicide: my sister's daughter died by her own hand last summer. Bonnie has not stopped weeping--she never will.
