Daydream

May 1st, 2018

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!

Cosmos

April 22nd, 2018

Cosmos

"I realized then that even though I was a tiny speck in an infinite cosmos, a blip on the timeline of eternity, I was not without purpose." - R.J. Anderson, Ultraviolet

Finding the meaning of life and why we exist is an integral part of our survival. We will spend a huge portion of our lives searching for our purpose. Maybe we were created to explore that lingering question, "Why am I here?" It certainly will not be solved in a blog or a motivational quote on our favorite social media website. It's only through a series of life experiences, growth, and the evolution of our souls that we will one day begin to understand why we were born.

The colors in this painting derive from that deep place beyond the Cosmos where the answers are within each of our hearts. Some of us may have it figured out early in our lives and others may take decades. Never stop searching. Ask questions, listen to your soul, and explore the possibilities.

Voltage

March 23rd, 2018

Voltage

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla

“Without discipline in spiritual pursuits, the central nervous system doesn’t have a chance to adjust and grow with the increased demand. It would be like putting a high voltage into a small bulb – it is bound to explode.” – Sivananda Radha Saraswati

Art is impulsive without apology. It either electrifies or repels. It can influence or evoke resistance. Art is power-driven.

This painting is a captivating study of electricity. A voltage that releases us from the notion of confinement. This piece infuses energy and expresses liberty.

What is something that electrifies you or gets you charged up?

Convergence

March 23rd, 2018

Convergence

“In painting you must give the idea of the true means of the false.” – Edgar Degas

This painting speaks to the theme of unifying opposing ideas and concepts. Through the process of convergence, we see that the whole can be greater than the sum of the parts. In this painting, Ralph White sought to expand the concept of the spiritual journey beyond the individual to the communal.

'Convergence' displays a lovely color palette that blends reds, purples and oranges in a harmonious tableau. The colors work together and complement each other. There is a demarcation, however, right down the center of the painting. Careful study reveals that while reds are found on both sides of the painting, purples are relegated to the left and oranges to the right. There are two different forces at work here, both relevant and vital, yet distinctly opposed.

How often in life are we faced with this sort of dichotomy? While we are faithful to our beliefs, we must also find ways to work together to remain productive and not dysfunctional. In this painting, White suggests that divergent beings can remain authentic while blending together to create combined beauty. The trick is in being able to acknowledge and affirm the relevance of each person’s intention. If intentions are honorable, then cooperation can occur.

Flashpoint

January 18th, 2018

Flashpoint

“But life is long. And it is the long run that balances the short flare of interest and passion.” – Sylvia Plath

“Every life can be learned from, as either a flame of hope or a cautionary flare.” – Richard Paul Evans

'Flashpoint' is the moment at which someone or something bursts into action or being, such as an outbreak or flare-up. This painting is the center of a volcano. The blasts of colors are flares of passion and the emergence of hope as it erupts from your soul.

May you begin to explore the depths of your passions and watch them burst into action this new year.

Jungle

December 20th, 2017

Jungle

“They can put me in a jungle. Still, I can create.” – M. F. Husain

The jungle is a dense labyrinth of overgrown trees and unruly wildlife. It is synonymous with entanglement and puzzling riddles. This painting illustrates a chaparral or thick brush as it consumes its surroundings.

When life bogs you down and you feel as if you were lost in a jungle of fragmented thoughts and feelings, finding your way out can be overwhelming. In those moments you can choose to let it take over or you can create a new atmosphere around you.

Reach for enlightenment this holiday season and give yourself room to breathe.

The Scarf

November 16th, 2017

The Scarf

“I’m going to search for my star until I find it. It’s hidden in the drawer of innocence, wrapped in a scarf of wonder.” – Michael Jackson

In this painting, Ralph White captures a moment so transient that it is out of focus, allowing us to interpret the action in our own way. The effective use of white adds to the feeling of a girl rushing through the air itself. Her features remain obscured as does her mission. Her dress blends with the trees and the air, and we do not know for sure where nature ends and where she begins. She is a glimpse, and it is up to us to determine why she is there.

The fun of this painting is the creation of the girl’s story, which is clearly up to the viewer to determine. Is she running scared? Is she playing an innocent game on a warm summer evening? Is the scarf for warmth or is it a delicate decoration? Because the imagery is blurry, we can draw upon a wealth of possibilities to explain it.

The Scarf is an invitation to adjust one’s perspective, to change one’s way of thinking and seeing. We are challenged to stop the action, to study a single fragment of time. In that instant, everything becomes nothing, and we are set free from our prejudice. Like the scarf, we are merely a flash of red in the wind.

Core

October 22nd, 2017

Core

“I think art is not an ornament or refinement at the fringes of human intelligence, I think it’s at the center. It’s at the core.” – Robert Pinsky

Some say that art is elective or voluntary. So how do you explain that your soul craves the expression of beauty in everything you see? How do you describe the feeling of color or your gravitation to undefined concepts in need of discovery? Art is exploration and a continuous effort to create and inspire others. It breaks through boundaries and defies logic and intuition. It is the center of your character.

This painting named Core is the essence of discovery. It is at the core of your being that you find limitless beauty and the desire to create.

Inferno

September 21st, 2017

Inferno

“From a little spark may burst a flame.” – Dante Alighieri

“A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.” – Carl Jung

An inferno is any place or state resembling hell.

This painting is called Inferno as it exhibits a fire raging out of control. This haunting pageant of purgatory represents your soul in transition. There’s a constant war within us battling for peace and justice.

This painting is an expression of endurance. The fire that flares up in your soul is passion. Passion is the drive to make things happen.

How great is the inferno of your soul?

Flaming Sunset

August 22nd, 2017

Flaming Sunset

“The sunset caught me, turned the brush to copper, set the clouds to one great roof of flame above the earth.” – Elizabeth Coatsworth

“The sky takes on shades of orange during sunrise and sunset, the color that gives you hope that the sun will set only to rise again.” – Ram Charan

This painting 'Flaming Sunset' is Mother Nature’s masterpiece. The sky is her canvas with the haze and clouds being the brush strokes of color. The sun and moon are lamps for igniting the flames of color and sweeps of shadows. She expresses every force of creation through her beauty.

May you continue to look around you in awe for each detail of treasure that Mother Nature brings forth.
