For some reason the designs in your art remind me of designs from Sante Fe New Mwxico, like Pueblo indian desings or something.

It is a very interesting observation. My craft is Russian and I wonder if all folk crafts are a bit similar in a way. I am gonna look up indian designs to see.

Yeah I looked up some designs of the southwest and their colors schemes are more triangular, subtle ,and mute but I still am reminded of like an indigenous look between your work and theirs. The most famous design character that they have would be the hunchback flute player called Kokopelli.

I like Indian art very much. I think it may be similar to what i paint because folk art is very stylized and i dont try to make things look like real objects. I am reading about the legend of Kokopelli and it is quite an interesting story. Thank you for telling me about it.

And yes, i live in Canada but I am not Canadian, not yet at least. I do speak French but i leaned it in Russia and Quebecois is a weird dialect i dont understand well. I do hope to meet Canadian artists though, Toronto is a very nice multicultural city, I hope one day to move there.

if you like Indian art, i would recommend [link]

Sounds like you would have a cool accent. I've grown up around Native American traditional and contemporary art becasue my mother is a professional Kickapoo <(yes thats a tribe, lol) potter for the last 20 years. And yes I think you are right on the stylization of folk images :D Good luck

oh, the accent. Yeah i guess it is cool. I sell CDs with recordings of me pronouncing words for people who like cool accents :lmao: ... I wish
Is your mother part of the tribe or does she just paint in that style?

Hey I would at least enjoy a common conversation with you over the subject of, hhhmm I don't know, Toast, Just to hear you speak :lol: My mom is a cerimc artist, a pottery maker. And she is not traditional in techniques she has developed her own methods and has a look no one has. Speaking of which LOL, I ranodmly search her name and her is a random link. [link]

Generally, I don't comment on DD's, because the page is so swamped with comments anyways, that I figure mine won't surface.
But this is different.
I haven't ever seen anything like this.
And I really, really, really like it. It makes me happy... to look at it... you know?
Thank you. For making something pretty.
