How the heck do you do that?!? Nice compositions and structure. :o)

I love the blue one.
How large are they?

I like 'em all. Particularly like the border on the last one.

I love these paintings: so full of wit and life and beauty and mystery!

Hey Hal, the "He Walks Alone" piece is really wonderful. I love the stuff you have been doing. Those birds tickle my funny bone!
Hal MayforthNovember 2, 2006
Thanks, guys. Chris, the blue one is 24 by 20 inches. I'd love to do these bigger, but they're on wood panel and the bigger they are the more unwieldy they are. Plus there are studio space considerations. The other ones are 24 by 16 inches.

I always like all the paintings you show here. They're so creative and unique. I especially like the one with the big X with the dots.
Tim O'BrienNovember 2, 2006
As Nancy suggested before, these would be GREAT rugs!
Mike MoranNovember 2, 2006
It's gonna be a great show for you, Hal. Fun paintings.
Edel RodriguezNovember 2, 2006
Love them all my man, great stuff!
Donald KilpatrickNovember 2, 2006
Amazing!! Love everything about these.
Adam McCauleyNovember 2, 2006
These would be great for a kid's book.

Beautiful, funny, frenetic and deeply disturbing. What do you eat before bed?
Michael SloanNovember 2, 2006
Hal - I like He Walks Alone the best. It reminds me of a native Indian tapestry or quilt. I really like what you did with the border.
Robert SaundersNovember 2, 2006
I respond best to He Walks Alone, too, Hal. Cool work.

BLUE TOO YOU!
James SteinbergNovember 2, 2006
Hal- You're trying all kinds of new things. I love the way the hobnails work with all the aboriginal dots in
'Into the Wild Blue Yonder'. And speaking of BLUE, I haven't seen you use Blue like that in your paintings.
It really sings.

THAT DOES IT! You now have my permission to quit your day job.
You have never done better than these. You have gone over into the realm of Fine Art. Your pictures in the past were hanging on for dear life to an illustration discipline but these have taken you over the edge. I can't even tell you how much I like these.
Excuse me while I go slit my throat.

Wing tipped man is my favorite. My next favorite is "Untitled" at the top.
Marc BurckhardtNovember 2, 2006
They're all beautiful, Hal, but I agree with Mr. Enos: Wing-Tipped Man is the show stopper.
