My Favorite Brazilian Artist
I really like that you explored a different side of yourself. I bet there is a lot more of yourself to discover and develop. Go for it!

Those are really cool. It's like you had a pen name!

I like Hayes' work more than Correia's!!

Neat work. It's amazing how many sides there are to each of us. Maybe you will explore another one before too long.

I actually love these paintings. I love the splashes o color. If I owned a house, I'd probably buy one from you to hang on the wall.

Isn't it amazing how role playing can uncover hidden talents?

I think that's kind of the opposite of our local Dairy Queen advertising Oreo Blizzards, and putting Hydrox cookies in them. This would be like Dairy Queen giving us Oreos, but telling us they're Hydrox.

I love it! Now tell the truth...did your wife ever cheat on you with Esteban the chubby Brazilian Chatterbox ?

Your alter ego knows how to paint! I love the primitive vibe along with the strong colours and backgrounds. The one with the couple is really almost neon in look...so bold. I love the meanings behind it and would like to learn more. You are really truly quite the artist.

I think these are really cool! Several years ago, I had an "alter ego" blog---it was fun at first, but it became too time consuming to keep two blogs going at once, so I finally gave it up.

It's a little sad that taking on another identity works well sometimes. Crooks do this all the time!!! Now before I get into trouble I'm not suggesting you're a crook. But crooks do use other identities very well.

Wow, incredible to think someone so vastly different might be lurking in us all. With todays headlines I could so relate to the nails in the head and really liked the suit pulling dollars from the sea. Your Correia makes the viewer think.

Ah hah ... the hidden side of Stephen Hayes. There's something to be said for creating an alter ego -- as you suggest, you can sometimes be bolder, more open and up-front. And ... not a bad place to retire, either!

It's nice to have different identities. Great story.

How about an alter ego as a writer? I bet you could write terrific erotica--or maybe design and write a comic book? Never too Late.

That fellow did some nice work! Fascinating post. It is a bit the same way with writing. The nom de plume is good tool.

That's awesome. I love that Esteban worked as a lifeguard on a nude beach. I hope he enjoyed opportunities to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. I really like the loud combination of darks and lights in those paintings, Stephen. Well done.

An alter-ego? Oh, I would never think of doing that. ;-)

Esteban come back to the light...actually if you need a sub at the beach, I'm your man.

the one of the couple with their cocktails looks like they are in a pot ready to be cooked! Heh heh.....
