“I was delighted…”

I was delighted to have a nearly immediate response from Mr. Simonson regarding this modest purchase. He also shipped the drawing immediately which arrived packaged as if it were a Da Vinci original which, for me, it is! He also extended a personal thanks and invitation to continue to look at his work and consider another purchase in the future, both of which will give me great pleasure. Thank you, Mr Simonson, for sharing your talent.

“…communication and service are absolutely first-rate.”

It’s obvious that Douglas’ art is Intriguing and gorgeous, but buyers should know that his communication and service are absolutely first-rate.

“…a new addition for the Simonson gallery…”

Now…another of your fine artworks is in admiring hands (so admiring that I told the architect to eighty-six all the windows for one wall in the new addition, for the Simonson gallery).

“Customer service is excellent…”

Wow! is all I can say! The painting is beautiful. Those little jpeg files on the screen don’t do the artwork justice. Thanks again for a wonderful painting and for the promptness of the shipping. Your customer service is excellent!

“…blew my socks off!”

The Print and the MiniPoster arrived today, and I just want you to know that they both blew my socks off! You are so very talented, and I feel truly lucky that your work, in different formats, is available for us to enjoy! Thank you, Douglas!

“Perfect portrayal of the male physique…”

“AWESOME!” is but a gentle word to describe your perfect portrayal of the male physique! I had the immense pleasure of stumbling onto your webpage and sat for hours going through each and everyone of your works! As an abstract artist I couldn’t help wishing that I’d turned my hand towards your style of portraying beauty! Thank you for sharing your love of art on the Net with me!! My best regards and best wishes to you.

“…beauty and sensuality…”

I kind of think of you as the master of the male nude…There is just a sense of beauty and sensuality, and a third extra sense that I can’t describe that pushes my buttons, that you have in your artwork, that I haven’t experienced in any other artist.

“In your work I am transported…”

Thank you as ever for the update alert for your gallery. In the course of several months I have seen the gallery progress and reach what is now a pinnacle of remarkable quality. The images are of substantial quality to view well and yet not replace purchase of an original or print. This is a fine line you have successfully walked. I applaud all involved…I must also comment upon the drama and erotic as well as pure sensual effect of these fine works. As a gay man and athlete, few characteristics of the male being (psyche, emotion, spirit, body, actions, tone and scent) have escaped my attention. In your work I am transported through several layers of ecstatic recollection of my former partner and also the delight of handsome and mysterious men everywhere. I am particularly gladdened that you repose before us people of ethnicity other than European heritage.

“…clean eroticism and good human feelings…”

Once more I express my admiration before the art of Douglas Simonson. Douglas is one of the rare artists who shows the connection between eroticism and spiritualism. Earlier I was pained every time with the fact that erotic gay pictures (as the straight erotic ones) many times were connected with something not very clean. On the contrary Douglas’ pictures and drawings accented the clean eroticism and good human feelings in the most simple people who had the luck to be a model for him. I think it would be revolutionary for not only Russian gay people but for Russian artists if Douglas some day come to Russia and do exhibition of his works here.
