Over the Plowed Field

Acrylic on panel, 8×8″ $495.00

This makes me think of a soul coming in fast to incarnate. So what’s with the plowed fields?

We’re all coming in over fields others have plowed, for as far back as there has been humanity, and longer. The old saying is “we stand on the shoulders of giants.” And why are we coming in so fast like a jet landing? Well who wouldn’t be eager to be coming in to this amazing life that others have given their hearts, souls and bodies for?

And guess what: we get to be the next generation of giants for the ones who come after us.

The Other Side: Almost There

Acrylic on Panel 8×8″

I thought about calling this “Fire at the Cotton Candy Works” but that wasn’t quite as evocative.

Hello, I Am Flower

Acrylic on panel, 8×8″

“Hello, I Am Flower” is a representation of the Flower Diva. Or to be a little more scientific, a morphic field pattern of flowers. Thanks to Rupert Sheldrake for his morphic field concept.

Escape From the Madness of Sleep

Acrylic on canvas, 18×24″

Well it sure feels like madness anyway. It used to be called “the little death” but I think it’s more accurately a form of nightly insanity. 

Oh I know all the supposed wonderful things about dreams giving you great insight, and lucid dreaming and all, but with rare (very rare) exceptions, my experience has been that sleep (at least the dreaming portion) is a mental state to be escaped quickly and thankfully. 

Not that dreams are always bad, because those are also the rare exceptions. But still, dreams are just nuts in a way I can’t wrap my head around. And honestly, it’s never proved to be worth the effort.

Just my experience, anyway. How ’bout you?

Mars Rising

Acrylic on Canvas, 12×12″

No special metaphysical message with this one, other than continuing to explore the essential unity of everything.

On The Other Side Of The Fire

Acrylic on canvas board 11×14″

Sometimes it’s true that the promised land, or at least some pretty good things lie on the other side of the fire. By which I mean something difficult or unpleasant that we go through. It’s happened to us many times.

One of the more memorable ones was how we arrived at a home that is just wonderful for us. Three years ago we were evicted from our rental of 17 years. We felt betrayed, we were hurt and angry. We scrambled to find another place, and moved. That didn’t work out well, and after six months we broke the lease and forfeited our security deposit.

But we found the home we’re in now, we were able to afford buying it, and it’s the nicest place we’ve lived in for over 25 years. There’s studio space for both of us, central air, and on and on. It sure seemed like we were going through the fire with all the emotional turmoil, having to move twice in six months, moving to a different state, with all the red tape that entailed.

But if we hadn’t been evicted and decided to look for a new place after our first forced move the home we’re in now wouldn’t have been up for sale at a price we could afford at exactly the time we needed it.

Now this isn’t pollyanna, I know sometimes the fire destroys. But so often it’s just clearing out the old to make way for something better than we thought possible.

Let Us Not Forget The Little Ones

Acrylic on cradled wood panel 6.5×12″

There are more microbes that are part of us than our own cells. Or are there? Technically, it’s a symbiosis, but aren’t they in a real sense an essential part of our physical being?

And aren’t we one with them as well as those we can see more easily?

All life is connected. We all depend on one another.

In Love With Love

18×24″ Acrylic on canvas

(Study) 11×14″ Acrylic on canvas board

Well, it’s finally done. Complete with Mars in the sky. I know, there’s a lot of finicky detail to take in with this one. 

I usually have some semi profound and/or pretentious things to say about my paintings, but I think you can go with just the title on this one and take it anywhere you want to go. 

I know it can be helpful for the artist to write something about their art, but if I could put it into words I wouldn’t have to paint it, would I? 

So what am I trying to say with this artwork? I’m not sure the title even relates to what I’m trying to say with it. Now that I think about it, I’m not trying to “say” anything with my art. If I were, my paintings would just be illustrations to flesh out a narrative of some sort. And they’re not that. Usually, anyway — don’t hold me to that in every case!

I think the pieces just want to be born. It’s my job to deliver them, then they can interact with each viewer in a very personal way. And I don’t like to limit exactly what that looks like for anybody, because what do I know about that?

Of course, that runs exactly counter to all the marketing advice for artists. Tell a story to engage your viewers or collectors! And I know that’s good advice, and it really helps a lot of people to enter into the spirit of the artwork more easily. But my paintings are more about feelings and spirit, and I don’t want to constrain or limit what that looks like for anyone.

Gotta strike a balance here though, hence at the very least: a title.

Part of the Journey


Acrylic on canvas, 24×18″


You know, I’ve always loved train rides. Not that I’ve been on a train any time in my adult life, but still. I think they’re a beautiful way to travel.


You get to enjoy the journey. You get to see the country at a speed that you can appreciate the view. Which is what this painting reminded me of.


We can get so caught up in speed and the destination that it’s really easy to miss the beauty of each part of the journey. 


And each part of the journey has gifts for us.
