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.

The Other Side of the Road

Acrylic on canvas, 14×11″

The Other Side of the Road

Looks pleasant enough over there, but are you willing to do what it takes to get there?

First you have to go through the red hot lava field. The good news is, there’s water on the other side of the lava. But then you’ll have to cross the water. Then if you manage to gain the opposite shore, there’s that road.

Now, here’s the tricky part. You see, the road is very pretty, you get a great close up view of what lies beyond, plus it’s a good way to assess where you’ve come from and how much you’ve accomplished. Which is considerable!

But it’s the road of temptation, it’s smooth and flat, and easy. And it’s really the greatest obstacle you’ll face, because this time it’s from within. You could spend the rest of your time happily going back and forth just sightseeing and congratulating yourself on your achievement. And that’s where your journey would stop.

But if you want to discover what lies beyond, you’ll have to let go of the path of comfort and prepare to take on the jungle and the terrain. Into terra incognita

The hero’s journey.

What say you, hero?

Boulevard of Trees

Boulevard of Trees

Well, that’s what the humans call them. 

To the trees, it’s just family. Blood brothers and sisters. Like the fingers of a hand they all appear separate, but they’re really more like one organism, connected through the root system.

Yet of course they’re both, a stately procession of beautiful trees, and a family unit, and we can hold both those ideas in our minds at the same time. And appreciate our plant cousins even more because of it.

White Cloud

Acrylic on canvas, 12×12″

White Cloud

You’d think a cloud is just a loose mass of water vapor, and you’d be right as far as that goes. But might it have consciousness? Is it aware in any sense?

Is it possible that clouds, as insubstantial and ephemeral as they are, are still capable of interacting with us, with our thoughts and our deep questions? Could they be a tool of the divine mind? Well — isn’t everything?

Shortly after my father crossed over to the spirit world, I was sitting on the back porch of his house, and I looked up and noticed a cloud. A cloud that was unmistakably the profile of my father’s face. At the same time I heard his voice in my mind saying “you’ll just have to carry on.” Which does sound like the kind of thing he would say. 

Everything can speak to you if you’re open to receive it.
