  1. Please click on the images to enlarge for greater detail. I apologize that the scans cut off an edge or two on a couple of the images.

  2. Very nice, Terry. I'm impressed!

  3. I'll provide the usual inane chatter one finds at such events.
    But first, Terry, I'm really impressed. These are good.

  4. Sorry, coming to these works of art following another stay in hospital...I am so pleased you are continuing to make art Terry.

  5. Ter: You are enormously talented. This is a great show. I find this series upsetting and provacative. I think you intended it to be. It's a very narrow and confining-almost claustrophic.

    If I extend this to the current situation of our Nation, I find this series very reflective of how so often we compartmentalize each other and ourselves. Even the Faith-as you illustrated so well with the Virgin and Jesus barely fitting into a house (or it a church or a monastery-open to interpretation by the viewer). I think that one is my favorite.

    Each piece stands alone open to viewer interpretation.

    Seriously, I'm stunned. I'm babbling on. I knew you were talented. I never knew how much.

    Prayers here. Thanks for sharing, my friend.

  6. Outstanding, Terry. These moving little pics reach right in and grab you. Before I read the title for "Domestic Scene" I thought it was a thunder storm. I was drawn to it right away. The people looked like flashes of lightning to me, and the steps (steps?) like slats on a window shutter. Sometimes families have storms, with shouting thunder and flashing anger. It leaves you wondering how to climb the steps and will you be alone at the top.

  7. The sweet face of the Virgin Mary in Gallery Nine is my favorite. Love the colors you used in many of the other pieces. Very nice. You're very talented.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
