    Damn, i thought you did that at first glance, but after reading..NICE WORK by Margi! I just love how your arm hangs on while strumming the guitar, and the tiny antenna’s on the roof! Love it!

    Very cool painting. I thought it was yours at first (very much your style). Synchronicity?
    I don’t know you personally but from your Church persona it feels like she caught you spot on.

    Very wonderful painting Margi !!! I would find it difficult to reproduce the pure energy and aura of Steve in such a landscape. I paint, but I am actually awful with people so I would never attest it. But you managed to create something so unique and special that I, along with many others, would b interested in purchasing a print or card of your extraordinary effort. Steve looks immortalized forever with that bass guitar.

    What a fantastic creation !!! and I could imagine possibly a bit humbling. Your truly captured Steve in his glory – again, congrats…simply extraordinary !!!

    i like how your image extends beyond the borders; was that on purpose?
    perhaps the artist was illustrating how the time being cannot be contained
    very nice piece…

    Artist captured by artist…I think you’ve been flattered by the sincerest form of flattery dear Kilbey. Quite lovely, I must say.

    wow, it’s like covering a song in a way… but in visual art…

    and also —
    this highlights even more that your style is certainly your very own distinct recognizable etc etc…
    it’s nice to be a good musician and/or a good artist — but
    having your own style? — that’s a whole new level… a higher floor in that pyramid… not all elevators go there…
    — apparently having your own style in music wasn’t enough?
    that minor insignificant deity was suspiciously, unreasonably generous while dishing out talents

        there’s something about the word nice…
        ok, let’s not go there…
        but rather than nice, i was being honest with just a slightest hint of sarcasm for a good measure — and you know which pyramid it is don’t you?

    I think she does a better job of capturing you

    Out of the frame with a burning bass guitar
    The painter must have captured you while playing Myrrh
    Only the Paisley shirt is missing (but I suppose Paisley shirts are difficult to paint…)
    Reminds me of an old man living next to my house, who used to know Matisse and Picasso (he was a frame seller in Paris long ago). He showed me one of his own abstract paintings and explained that it was him in his mother’s womb because he can clearly remember the time before birth as his happiest time on Earth. Hotel womb in a way…

    love the way the heavens are flaming around you…..a sense of divinity…..
    am flagellating myself for not being on for the last few days but it is a real treat to read a few pieces of your prose in one go……just lovely!
    love always…..
