But, Barlowe's style (at least as seen mirrored in this painting, I know he is a very diverse artist and I admire him greatly) itself, draws heavily from Beksinski He even wrote the flattering blurb on the back of Beksinski's best known book... So to say Barlowe, is still to say Beksinski
This screams Beksinski, as you are obviously heavily influenced by him. Your technical skills approach his, and your motifs and symbols (the half-dead figure, the collar, the colors, the cross, the strained branches around its head) are so blatantly drawn from his ouvre. Despite this painting's beauty, it is difficult for me to appreciate it as something other than as an imitation of Beksinski. Nevertheless, I do enjoy it.
