Beautiful work! Thanks for participating in the Broadstreet show!
Posted by brosio on July 06, 2011
Thanks! We have such a small format to work with but I think I have something in mind. :)

You're invited to join the LCAD group!

Your work is so increadible. It is what I want to create as an artist, but just have never been able to dream up. So great.
Posted by brosio on March 18, 2011
Thanks again - so kind. I'd say that having a lot of crazy ideas is easier than arranging them. I'd also say to make tons of little thumbnail sketches. TONS of them to chase your ideas into articulation. You could even do 50 in a day if you're sufficiently revved up.
Posted by jlinkous15 on March 20, 2011
i like your verb choice in "chase your ideas into articulation." clever.
Posted by alandismuke on March 08, 2011
I love the idyllic calm and your vision of Hopperesque Americana amidst impending disaster. An apt allegory for our times...
Thanks! That's the big time contrast that I'm after!
Posted by brettlee on January 06, 2011
amazing work! I also did a tornado painting a couple years ago, but your tornadoes blow mine away(yuk-yuk).
Posted by brosio on January 06, 2011
lol! Did you post yours? Would love to see. Thanks for the kind words... :)
Absolutely! I had also been painting a UFO invasion scene over a carnival and adding a giant sea creature when I first saw your work in the Blue Canvas(will post when done). Great stuff!
Posted by gabrielkaragianis on December 31, 2010
I love it all. this is very exciting work, I saw it in the current issue and I was inspired to join the Blue Canvas community. Thank you
Posted by paulnicholson on December 26, 2010
These are wonderful! I take it you live somewhere in tornado alley? Great stuff.
Actually I live in CA. Chased storms a ways back but I don't know what possessed me prior to that. Wizard of Oz?
Posted by st_gemma on December 02, 2010
yur work is startling, marvelous, and moving. i am very impressed. and i bought issue six because of yur work. great job.
Thank you! Very kind words indeed. Sometimes I think I'm actually out of steam until someone like yourself responds in this way. You are the fuel!!!! Very happy you enjoy them! :)
Posted by cookieholmes on November 20, 2010
Congrats on having your work displayed at the Issue 6 Launch Event! Your work is so awesome & original...you will be the artist who students will study in art history books one day! Again, congratualtions and continued success! : )
Posted by brosio on November 20, 2010
History books?! That is certainly a nice sentiment - thank you!!!! But one can never know, huh.... I think that in history books the folks will look at how film and all its cgi affected painting just as how photography affected impressionism. There will be a link in retrospect. That and the scramble for what people think is "meaning" in an image. I would love to read an art history book from 2832 A.D. :)
Posted by davemacdowell on November 17, 2010
Oh God I'm drooling. Some of the most beautiful terrifying circumstances ever put to canvas. The "every-man" doesn't stand a chance.
Yes, "every-man" is getting his ass kicked these days. I don't think that aspect of things will ever leave my work. :)
Posted by frankoriti on November 10, 2010
your work is really something. very inspirational.. that is for sure!
Posted by brosio on November 10, 2010
Thank you, Sir!!! I'm loving your work too - was just trying to arrange a fig. in front of some suburbia like that. Tough!!!
hey thanks for checking things out! its appreciated.
Posted by robertsabin on November 01, 2010
John, your paintings are wonderful. The octopus painting just kills me. Startling, funny,unsettling, so gorgeously painted. Fleshy, slimy, translucent, mottled. The tentacle reaching out from the curb is alarming. That hilarious lamp post cutting the picture in two! Actually, all the work in your gallery kills me one way or another. In Scouring, the way the sun illumines a strip of town in the distance, the green sky in Jerk, your plaid shirt in Self Portrait, the velvety slate skies.i also like very much the way you handle paint. It has a sort of lush grainyness that you see in Chardin. I wish you well and hope you get more time to paint.
Posted by brosio on November 01, 2010
Thank you for such kind words!!!! Time is returning a bit over here. Sometimes it is hard to just tell so many people to bugger off for a bit because I do enjoy the folks in my life. They all just have to understand that being an artist does not mean "free time." I'm sure you can relate!!! :)
Posted by calcavecchia on October 26, 2010
Wow, you are wonderfully talented, I love it all.
Posted by fxman on October 24, 2010
thank you for taking a look at my latest work , and also for all those stars !
Posted by daniellovely on October 11, 2010
you're the eye in the storm guy - keep on kicking ass in the studio!
Posted by brosio on October 12, 2010
Thank you, Sir!!! I just took a look at your site and urge folks to visit for sure. Me, I have done some pastel work and really enjoy it. It almost seems like I don't have time to do as much of it as I'd like. Weird, that....
Posted by kevinking on September 30, 2010
After looking at your work having a flat tire might not be so bad.
Posted by serenamuse on September 29, 2010
Wow! 525 stars! I have a long way to go. That is why you are the master.
Posted by brosio on September 30, 2010
Hi, Serena! "Master?!" Don't know if I'm there YET, but tryin'... :)
Posted by nathanfischer on September 19, 2010
Hi John, love love your work. Saw your tornado series a few years ago in Laguna Beach...at Sue Greenwood? gallery?? More than amazing in person. Captivating would be the word. Showing again in Laguna soon?
Posted by brosio on September 21, 2010
Hey! Thanks for the kind words! I have been teaching so much that it has been hard to paint. However, I hope to have a few things up to speed very soon. No show yet scheduled - I'm going to wait until the work reaches some kind of critical mass. :)
Posted by davidcarmacklewis on September 08, 2010
Hey John, Always a pleasure to look through your work! One of the most talented people I know of.
Posted by brosio on September 09, 2010
Thanks! That is very kind of you, sir. Still tryin' over here!!! lol! I have some still lifes going right now. So far so good.
Posted by morris on July 19, 2010
Very cool stuff.
Posted by brosio on July 24, 2010
Thank you so much! :)
Posted by chris on July 15, 2010
Brilliant work, John... Your series of tornados and storm paintings are a treasure in themselves!
Posted by brosio on July 17, 2010
Thanks, Chris! Kind words indeed. It is weird to have a niche: How to cultivate it without abusing it is getting to be the trick - stay excited and not get comfortable, etc. I'm right now trying to sketch up some imagery of where it will go next and some of the thumbnails go right back to my original attempts - it is a fun puzzle as I write this.
Posted by chris on July 17, 2010
Wise words; and highly poignant in these times ;) I have no doubt you'll maintain absolute integrity and fulfillment within your work :)

Amazing work... esp the Edge of Town series.
Thank you - I do like that series too but I think it is going through a transformation coming up. Trying to figure it out!
Posted by vincentaltamore on May 15, 2010
Brilliant stuff John!!!
Posted by brosio on May 15, 2010
Thank you, Sir! Wondering - have you ever done H. Ford/ Indiana Jones?
Posted by cookieholmes on May 15, 2010
Congratulations on your work being featured! I'm excited for you! Excellent gallery! : )
Posted by stanna777 on May 15, 2010
Your works are so incredibly good!! I've never seen something compareable before and In can't stop staring at them.... very inspiring and unique, as if they had been taken out of some movie, wow :-)
Kind words!! Thanks! And yes, movies are a huge weakness for me - happy that you see that!

Posted by brosio on May 08, 2010
Thank YOU - the best thing that can happen is for others to connect with it. That's the best fuel! :)
Posted by alchemista1980 on May 02, 2010
These paintings are absoloutly incredible! They take the mind to strange places and truly push you to try to understand them. Unique work!
Posted by brosio on May 07, 2010
Thanks! I have several more under way right now and can't wait to post them. LOVING your face paintings here. I have a painting with a woman done up "skull' in it but its not working out just yet.
