"Feb '08 and only just now Artist-a-Day is onto Blaine Fontana - Talk about living under a rock! - I digress. These 2 paintings are fantastic albeit very small sample from this prolific and creative talent. Keep up the great work, Blaine!"

"Your work is truly amazing!The way you created this artwork is simply stuning,and captures one eye.I really love the fish painting because of the uniquie and expressive way you used such odd creatures.Such a beauty to look at.Keep painting!!!"

"I love your work! It's very fresh and clean and alive."

"love the goldfish. in his natural element but out of his natural environment at the same time."

"Fish: Incongruent juxtapositions of both color and substance work really well in the imaginative context that you have provided, grounded by vintage wallpaper outside the "bowl." Raw, vigorous talent with an eye to see beyond. Good work, Blaine."

"this is great!! just what i love to do~ mix color and patterns, in a graphic, in your face way. and it is still very pleasing. lovely."

"Really lovely. I like the goldfish better than the other but both show your freedom of expression."

"I love what you've done with the contrast of each color. I especially like the fish painting. It brings a certain feeling that makes me feel good."

"the fish picture was not the best picture I have ever seen before. It it is weird and it is freaky"
