Spindrift

November 20th, 2018

Spindrift

"My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea, and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me." - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A spindrift is the spray or mist of the sea from the crests of the waves by the wind.

This painting is called 'Spindrift' as it highlights the strengths between the sun, the sea and the wind. The colors are exaggerated to describe the majestic setting of the sun into the colossal depth of the sea to create a universal connection of power between these energetic forces.

Liberation

Liberation

“The artist produces for the liberation of his soul. It is his nature to create as it is the nature of water to run down the hill.” – W. Somerset Maugham

During a lifetime of spiritual study and experience, I’ve become deeply influenced by the power of possibility. I devote much of my artistic expression to visual images of human intention and the necessary connections between action and purpose.

In Spring of 2006, I was searching for the essence of the authentic soul. In this work, I attempted to express the extraordinary elation that accompanies human transformation.

The bold colors in this painting command attention to what is happening within. The blending of red, orange and yellow signify the intensity and power of the experience. It is as though once acknowledged, the force of intention liberates the soul’s energy into the world, into decisive and positive action.

There is a mighty sense of release in this painting. I’d like to encourage you to liberate the power that lies dormant within your soul. This painting reminds us that this is not only a rewarding journey, but a necessary one.

Aurora

Aurora

“There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in contrast.” – Charles Dickens

Nature is a frequent inspiration for my paintings. Whenever I find myself wondering what to paint, I never have to look far to find something intriguing in the world outside my window. I am forever fascinated with the beauty and power of the original creation, and the challenge of expressing my human reaction to this amazing design is both humbling and enlightening.

In my painting Aurora, I celebrate the eternal bond between earth and sky, and seek to blur the boundaries between them. Earth is our home and the sky is our playground. This divine relationship is older than history and shape the fabric of who we are and what we believe. Aurora depicts a loving connection of natural elements and encourages us to create these connections in our souls.

Genesis

Genesis

"Passion is the genesis of genius." - Tony Robbins

Genesis is the point at which something comes into existence. This painting is a bold re-imagining of creation of the universe. It reveals the exact moment in which light and color were conceived. This powerful piece is a tribute to the handiwork of any genius. Whether it be art, music, poetry, architecture, etc., the root of any idea or concept is faith and passion.

May your undiscovered passion come into existence and bring you joy.

Threshold

July 21st, 2018

Threshold

“This is the solstice, the still point of the sun, its cusp and midnight, the year’s threshold and unlocking, where the past lets go of and becomes the future; the place of caught breath, the door of a vanished house left ajar…” – Margaret Atwood, Eating Fire: Selected Poetry 1965-1995

This bold painting challenges us to simplify our objectives. The complex essence of sea and sky is set down as two distinct elements. We are immediately drawn to the line that separates them--to the threshold, the place just between. This work strives to delineate this intangible area where nature cannot be broken apart. A finite stripe linking heaven and earth causes us to define our perception of each.

Think of the two elements as your spiritual and practical beings. Can we move easily from our soul’s intention to reality? Can we cross the threshold of our imagination and return to put these ideas to productive use? We must push ourselves to the threshold to discover and fulfill our authentic soul.

Reef

"Nature always wears the colors of the spirit." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The beauty of life lies beneath the surface. Sometimes what we see on the exterior is only a fraction of what is all there. When you look at the ocean from a hill, you see a vast expanse of water. But when you dive into the depths of it, you experience the hallmark of the spirit.

This painting is called 'Reef' as it illuminates the depths of beauty in the sea and brings imagination to the spirit.

May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.

“Work until you no longer have to introduce yourself.” – Unknown

Whether it is with business relationships or social interactions, networking is a building block of society. A few reasons for making connections would be to learn something new, inspire and help others, or to remind us of what is truly important.

This painting is a powerful display of connection. The invasion of the red paint symbolizes influence and determination as it boldly travels across the canvas to make itself known.

With boldness and a genuine interest in others, making long-lasting connections is easier than you think!

Passage

Passage

“The world today doesn’t make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?” – Pablo Picasso

The above quote is amusing and true. I could say the same thing. I leave it up the viewer to decide what makes sense in my paintings according to their world view. I like to create an atmosphere through my paintings in which the viewer can determine the origin and destination.

This painting 'Passage' appears to have layers leading to a destination of energy and happiness in this nonsensical world. The yellow produces joy and flows through like a geyser, saturating the calmness of the other colors, bringing the sense back into the painting.

Create your passage by designing your happiness to flow through the parts of your life that make no sense.

Cascade

Cascade

“When you drop any new idea in the pond of the world, you get a ripple effect. You have to be aware that you will be creating a cascade of change.” – Joel A. Barker

Change is inevitable for all of us. We’re constantly evolving, developing, and progressing toward the next phase of our lives. The world is always moving around and growing older. Weather patterns are sporadic and continue to fluctuate. Science and technology seem to procure results more quickly these days with new studies and findings. Art is continuous, edgy, and flows through main stream media every day with new ideas and sprouting concepts. Change is everywhere, every day.

The painting 'Cascade' is the creation of change. This glowing torrent is earth mixing itself up in space, creating a graceful energy for its inhabitants to emulate. Thus concluding that change or transformation begins with the universe and continues with us.

Embrace each moment as it evolves and live each day with the reminder that change is essential.

Daydream

Daydream

"Well it's not just a daydream if you decide to make it your life." - Train

Daydreaming is a nice way to pass the time. It can also be very effective in developing new ideas or concepts. Studies suggest that daydreaming can increase productivity, improve thinking, and sometimes alleviate anxiety or sadness.

This painting called 'Daydream' is an abstract conception of wishful thinking. This colorful examination in reverie is a bubble bath of disengagement.

Though building castles in the sky might seem like a waste of time, it actually induces creativity and confidence. Don't quit your daydream!
