I visited this artist's site. Don't know why he doesn't have the newer work from his site on here. The stuff from 2008 is more dramatic and Old Master-like. Much better painting than these.

I visited Erik's website. Every painting deserves great praise. Christina is right--these paintings tell a story (made even more fascinating because possibilities are endless & left to the imagination of the viewer). I could stare at his paintings for hours. Sadly, I can't afford them. Please consider limited edition prints!

These are truely amazing works of art. I would love to see one of these up close in person. Truely an inspiration.

Yup... I'd agree. Great storytelling... Lovely light-work as well... Keep it up!

The second painting is the best painting i have ever seen!.. ive never seen anything like it its so beautiful... i love it.. especially because reading is my favorite.. hobby :D.. your a great artist know i know why your paintings are published everywhere!

very beautiful. i agree, the first one is best because it allows the viewer to focus more intently upon the subject of the painting. Very emotional; both paintings tell a story, and the possibilities of what has happend and is about to happend in these paintings are practically endless. Superb.

Both paintings are exceptionally beautiful (and interesting), I think. I agree the first is stronger because it has fewer distractions. This is a gifted artist for sure -- hope to see more!

Diane

I love the first photo but not a 5 star because the 2nd one list just wasn't as stunning although very beautiful.

Joseph
