Compare and contrast

I thought I'd put my two most recent paintings side by side and see how they compare and contrast:
Raphus Cucullatus Nebula

-loose brush work that evokes emotion
-strong contrast of lights and darks (high key)
-off-centre focal point/composition

-Raphus looks like it's a shallow window whereas Manscape has a more ambiguous space
-more imagery/elements in Raphus

I feel like these could almost go side by side in an exhibition and hold together. They are painted in a similar way which I think ties them together. I enjoyed painting both of them and I'm very excited to see how viewer might respond to them . . . now if only I could get some shows ;)
