The Encounter


Ruth Edward Anderson
Gerald I just love this one. I have 2 cats & one is convinced that she's much bigger than the crows.

Gerald Shepherd
Thank you very much. I have two cats who hunt flies and don't aspire to anything else and a third who probably finds even thinking about it too tiring!

Ruth Edward Anderson
Gerald I have to come back to this one again and again.

Gerald Shepherd
Thank you! Perhaps I should return to more conventional art again. To be honest I have never really rated my traditional work. It is almost always done to commission (which I must confess I turn down if I am selling my other work OK), I hardly ever photograph them before sale and if I don't sell any I give them away! This particular work is in a local care home; apparently they have a whole wall devoted to my work - I'm not if I would like to end my days staring at my pictures! Incidentally I did do another version which isn't as good. I will find it out and post it.

Ruth Edward Anderson
Gerald I think you should do whatever art is speaking to you currently. You should always document a piece of art prior to selling (sometime I forget too do that). It's nice to hear you'll give paintings away, I also do that. I like that the Nursing Home has whole wall devoted to your art.

Hi Gerald, great work

George

Gerald Shepherd
Hi George, Thank you very much for saying so!

Sari Paakkanen
This picture has tension :D

Gerald Shepherd
It does I suppose. I must confess I painted this from a photograph but I reckon the bird (or birds) would win any contest.

Sari Paakkanen
I must say that this picture is very nicely done and it is has beauty and feelings like suspense (but the bird seems to be just "cool") in it. In other words: interesting art work.

Gerald Shepherd
Thank you very much!

jie yu
lovely

Gerald Shepherd
Thank you very much! This is probably the better of the two versions.

Melinda Kása

Gerald Shepherd
Thank you very much Melinda!

Gerald Shepherd

Abstract Expressionism
All these Art Emperors live based on the death Artist’s Legacies with no doubt. While the Artist is alive, even they don't accept his/her call in any time. Please don’t give me wrong. you can test them yourselves. Mail them for a review or exhibition of your artworks, you will find your applications in a trashcan quite soon. They live in nice mansions or a House of Art with proudly call Art Galleries/Museums and the artists are suffering of poverty and struggling to pay the bills to live. Well. That kind of artist will be very lucky if he/she sells some paintings to those Emperors/Art Collectors, and they call him/her back in 5 to ten years if he/she is still alive or death. The good news will be if he/she is death to make some money but tons of money. They take your paintings and make their own stories about them and make them as an iconic painting and that is the time that their lottery matches for a jackpot. Basically, we all work for them for free. When they call their selves the Emperors, another meaning of that is the Slavery Masters. We create works of art until we are alive with no respect or appreciation and the end, they take advantage of them mercilessly. I am not venge it to discuss deeply but reality is the word of Lord. In the whole history of art, Mark Rothko was realized the exact meaning of Art Emperors which I am talking about.
