Sweet Life

Sweet Life

A slightly darker, otherworldly version of candyland, where the confections come to life and revel in all their sweet, sticky goodness.
The colors of this piece were inspired by those hard, marshmellowy, pastel colored candies I remember as a child.

Primal Dremscape

Primal Dremscape

Forms begin to articulate themselves with purpose amid the crackling energies of a newborn dream.
I really like how the cool palette harmonizes this piece.

Long Before Now

Long Before Now

"Long Before Now" is a fanciful depiction of the primal past. The world we inhabit was once home to strange forms now long extinct. They confer with each other on matters we can only guess at.

The Passing of Momentary Stillness

The Passing of Momentary Stillness

"The Passing of Momentary Stillness" is about the inevitability of change - in us and everything around us. The forms and colors move and flow once again after a moment of seeming stillness, a brief illusion of stability within a state of constant flux.
As a practicing Buddhist, I am mindful of the ever changing state of the world in which we find ourselves. Even seemingly solid objects and ideas are temporary and conditional.

A Place Fraught With Danger

A Place Fraught With Danger



Sometimes, it's best not to be lured into a situation which, while looking sweet and exciting, hides dangers just beneath the surface.
To me, the colors and shapes in this piece simultaneously evoke alluring sweetness and poisonous danger.

The First Storytellers

The First Storytellers



Huddled together in a world lit only by fire, they share tales of an even more distant, primal past.
"The First Storytellers" draws on my love of myth. The colors are those of fire and earth. Together with the abstract forms, they evoke figures telling each other stories in the mystical confines of a cathedral cave.

Magic Users of the 4th Dimension

Magic Users of the 4th Dimension



The wielding of magical power, only the stuff of fantasy in our mundane world, is an everyday occurrence to the denizens of other dimensions.
The grey tones of the figures recall the color of wizard robes, while the reds, blues, and magentas evoke magical energies, the most potent of which is represented by the white spheroid located just left of center.

Mirage

Mirage



Sometimes we see things that are not really there...or are they?
The colors and paint handling evoke a melty, desert landscape under fiery skies. The strange, inarticulate forms represent things seen which may (or may not) actually be there.

Dream of The Somnambulist

Dream of The Somnambulist



The sleepwalker shambles forward in the upper left quadrant of the painting. In his wake, the dream follows, by turns nightmarish and sweet.
This is one of my favorite paintings of this period. I think everything (the composition, the colors, the paint handling, etc.) came together quite nicely. I also think it is one of my most evocative pieces, if I do say so myself (and I do).

Jovian Ecstasy

Jovian Ecstasy

This painting is a fanciful depiction of what life may be like on a world very different from our own, namely, in the gaseous environment of our largest celestial neighbor, Jupiter. My sense of wonder for this was first kindled as teenager when I first read Clifford Simak's "City", a novel consisting of a series of linked short stories chronicling the future of mankind, including the discovery of life on Jupiter.

Coronation of Nighttime

Coronation of Nighttime

This painting began looking very different from how it does now. This is the result of not being satisfied with okay. It is often tempting to stop working on a piece when it looks "ok", while not being completely happy with it. Growth is only possible by taking chances and working through obstacles. This piece went from being a not-so-interesting collection of abstract forms, to being a dark, richly layered evocation of mystery.
