This has such a lovely transparnt, gkazed look...I love how your colors are so strong and transparent at the same time. Beautiful!

I love your work. This proves to be both unsettling and very compelling, I love the transparency of the animal.

Transparent as excuses stands a girl,
hiding nothing; even doors have ghosts.
Her friend before is more ephemeral
than his mistress; watchful at his post

but disregarding us, his gaze elsewhere.
And she too stares, so probably her eyes
alight beyond, as though we are not there.
No; we are here, as intimate as spies -

our world must open here, or why the view
of beast and mistress, waiting at the door,
insouciant as angels, calling you?
Or maybe not; just waiting, evermore.

Very cool! I love how the colors are reminiscent of your usual pallette, but much more subtle. The transparency is a great touch.

The colors, the look-that glazed vibrant energy-wow. Two ghosts with more vitality than the living they seem to be conveying. A beauty and great take on 'ghost', and I love the BOO address on the door!

The layering works wonderfully for this topic. Very enigmatic. I love that.

Kept the enlarged version up on my monitor for a long time... Both subjects are haunting, but the direct gaze of the woman makes her especially so. I agree with Amy Z... your palette, while always very rich, is more subdued here, perhaps in keeping with the subject matter. Gotta go back and look some more. Beauty.

Nice effect--and your colors really can't be beat. Love the subtle "Boo."

This has a deeper meaning than we can see, that is what I feel form this painting! Always your gorgeous colours and style! Is she smoking a doob?
