Mystic Forest

August 28th, 2019

Mystic Forest

“My aim in painting is to create pulsating, luminous, and open surfaces that emanate a mystic light, in accordance with my deepest insight into the experience of life and nature.”

“The whole world, as we experience it visually, comes to us through the mystic realm of color.” – Hans Hofmann

Life and nature are a conundrum. We are continually seeking and pursuing evidence for authenticity of the truth.

My painting Mystic Forest is the absorption of knowledge in searching for truth. The streams of blended colors cast a mystic shine behind the dark tree-like javelins. The colors symbolize proof of a lighted path toward our own personal reality and freedom of expression.

Genesis

Genesis

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

“The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation.” – Auguste Rodin

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

May we always remember to create our happiness instead of searching for it.

Radiance

Radiance

“Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen – that stillness becomes a radiance.” – Morgan Freeman

Learning how to let life flow can be challenging. We must be reminded that each moment is a new opportunity to find freedom and to let go of the things that cannot be controlled.

This painting is called Radiance for its graceful tides of tranquility. The burnt-orange and yellow represent warmth and rejuvenation. Make a daily appointment to be still and let life flow as you find a quiet place, take a deep breath, and let your radiant soul be revived.

Carnival

Carnival

“Life is like a carnival. When you are little, everything is smoke, mirrors, and illusions. Then you grow up.” – Linda Poindexter

Imagine when you were a kid and you’d go to the carnival or circus. All the colors seemed brighter and the rides were enormous. Your cotton candy was a fluffy piece of heaven. There were no calories to worry about and no dizzy spells from the rides. It was just a lively spectacle of imagination and fun!

This painting Carnival depicts animated scenes of a boisterous atmosphere. A sight that is charged up with energetic fusion and wild echoes of expression. The splashes of color expose the assembly of all the carnival artists and vendors hustling about, making magic happen for the youthful at heart.

Zap

Zap

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.” – Jo Walton

I’ve always wanted to dive into a sunset, getting lost in the colors as they melt the day into the night. Often times we forget to live in the moment as we throw ourselves into tomorrow’s plans and worries, wasting each sunrise and sunset without glancing at them. I think that those moments you spend watching the sun rise and set, each wave of color in the sky embeds itself into your soul and seeps into your dreams. The colors in this painting, like the sun rising and setting, are the emblem of your spirit keeping each day fresh and full of life.

Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise

“You can’t keep the birds of sadness from flying over your head, but you can keep them from nesting in your hair.” – Sharon Creech, Walk Two Moons

We cannot control when bad things happen to us. Unfortunately, pain is inevitable. But dwelling in misery is optional. We can choose to view the brighter side of a difficult situation and create birds of paradise instead of sadness.

This painting is a tropical aviary of peaceful energy. It is a vibrant representation of paradise--a colorful atmosphere reminding us to seek the positive and overcome adversity.

Welcome to Spring, the season of re-birth and the awakening of life.

Rusted Sun

Rusted Sun

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you.” – Walt Whitman

On the hottest day of any given year, the heat of a Rusted Sun spreads across the atmosphere as if it restrains itself from bursting into a blaze.

This remarkable sphere contains all the beauty and energy of the most prehistoric fires. The yellow flares against the dark crimson surface remind us of molten and the smoldering conception of a fiery planet.

Sometimes we need to gather our resources together and to build up energy for the demands of our lives. To harbor the forces within us before we take direct action.

The key is to never let those energies and passions die within us. Sometimes our circumstances prevent us from tending to our innermost desires. Sometimes we must be patient in the face of our responsibilities, and delay pursuit of our dreams. It is up to us to keep those dreams healthy and alive, to keep them from rusting in our spirits so that when the time is right we may go forward with confidence.

Spirit Dance

February 2nd, 2019

Spirit Dance

"I can say that paintings are prayers, they have to do with anything that makes you wish for more than what everyday life provides." - Susan Rothenberg

Praying or meditating is a practice or discipline in the everyday lives of many people. To say that paintings are prayers is such a great comparison. Some paintings are like dreams or far away places that one would go to escape reality. Meditating or praying for something different to happen is like escaping into a dream. You lose yourself for a moment and long to be in another realm.

'Spirit Dance' is a painting which you could easily meditate on and allow it take you beyond the colors. It is uplifting and transcends a hopeful outcome.

Meditate on something inspiring today. Give your spirit a refreshing boost!

Wanderlust

January 15th, 2019

Wanderlust

“A desire to travel, to understand ones very own existence.” – Unknown

“Only the curious have, if they live, a tale worth telling at all.” – Alistair Reid

Wanderlust is an intense desire or impulse to travel.

We travel to be enlightened and to experience new adventures. We travel to find love. We travel to fill our souls with purpose and to overcome fears.

This painting is a lively collage of memories and footprints that I’ve created along my path of life. Seas, sunsets, and stars. Moments without words etched into my soul.

Adventure awaits you. Make wandering a new habit!

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.
