Tsunami Alert

Acrylic on MDF panel, 6″x6″ $96.00

Things are changing, and they’re changing fast and they’re changing massively. Things are not going to continue as they always have.  

Of course, the only thing constant is change. Which isn’t necessarily bad, since stasis is death. But too rapid change can also be death. What will be swept away? Will it be a cleansing or destruction?

All I know is it’s coming.

The sides of this artwork are attractively painted black and you can hang it immediately with the attached paracord.

To Be Human

Acrylic on MDF panel, 6’x6′

To Be Human

Acrylic on MDF Panel, 6”x6”

$96.00

There’s a little good in the worst of us, a little bad in the best of us. Or substitute whatever opposite traits you want. 

There’s so much depth to the Yin/Yang metaphor, I’m still exploring it. People, things, situations, relationships, are seldom if ever all one thing or another. The Yin/Yang metaphor simplifies things to get the important point across, but in reality there is a multitude of Yin/Yang dynamic that would be a very busy painting indeed if I were to try to depict even a small bit of it. 

An incredibly interconnected multidimensional network of Yin/Yang. The web that forms the Universe is complex beyond understanding, but we can understand that it is. And that’s gotta be helpful.

We exist within nature, symbolized by the green vegetation and clouds, and within a sparkling Universe of spirit/energy. 

The blue at the center of the neck is the core of spirit/energy that forms our center, that keeps us balanced, that keeps us connected to what matters. 

The sides are attractively painted black and you can hang it immediately with the attached paracord.

The Nature Of Love

Acrylic on MDF panel, 6″x6″

A little of thee in me, and a little of me in thee. And from the union, new life springs. Not necessarily a physical child, but a new dynamic, a relationship.

Oh, and this isn’t just about romantic love. Or just love between humans. This is about all forms of love across the Universe. Between thoughts and ideas, all beings, so-called inanimate things? It really depends on your understanding of reality how far you can take this.

I seem to be on a bit of a yin/yang theme lately. A couple more exploring this path coming soon.

The sides are attractively painted black and you can hang it immediately with the attached paracord.

Love Light

Acrylic on reclaimed wood, 6.5″x10.5″

I thought it looked like the flame was being fed from the fuel reservoir in the heart. It was a little harder to come up with a title for this one than most. I think it works though.

This piece of reclaimed wood shows its scars a little more than most. There are some vertical gouges in the cloud shape at the top, towards the middle. They’re hard to see on the computer image, more noticeable on the original, but still subtle. 

We all carry our scars, but that doesn’t stop the love light shining from our hearts, does it? Well, ideally anyway.

By the way, the imperfections in the slab of wood don’t affect the integrity of the paint layers or the archival stability of the piece in any way. Kind of the same for us, if you know what I mean.

This artwork is available for just $136.00. The sides are attractively painted black and you can hang it immediately with the attached paracord.

Future Blooms Now

Future Blooms Now

Acrylic on canvas, 11”x14”

Of course before the blooms arrive in the future they exist now in potential, or in thought. Everything that is, was not at one time, but the thought or the potential necessarily preceded it.

This is my second large(ish) dot painting to date. I have a bunch of canvases this size, but I’ll probably continue doing the smaller ones mostly, with a few like this thrown in now and then. 

Funny, I used to paint on much larger canvases, but now I’m liking the small sizes better. Of course with dots, bigger = more time. Maybe I’m just getting impatient in my old age, but the small 6″x6″ and slightly bigger ones are very satisfying because I don’t have to wait so long to see what the finished product looks like!

This artwork is available for just $200.00. The sides are attractively painted black so you can hang it immediately until you get it framed.

Gaspar, Melchior and Balthasar

Acrylic on Canvas, 8″x10″

Some of you will recognize the names as the mythical names of the three wise men who brought gifts to the baby Jesus. In this painting, I’m symbolizing the bringing of spiritual gifts and wisdom as orbs of energy, immaterial existences that exist alongside us, usually invisible to most, but nonetheless real and available.

This small artwork is available for just $144.00, ready to hang immediately with sides attractively painted black. But I think it would look great framed. Perfect for small or intimate spaces!

Even the Bird Has Doubts

Acrylic on MDF panel, 6″x5.75″

And why wouldn’t she?

What a weird time for all our fellow earthlings. Spread love? Sure. Refuse to succumb to depression and despair? Sure. Maintain a hopeful, positive attitude? You bet.

Will it make any difference?

…even the bird has doubts.

Lush

This reminds me of my earliest years in Honduras. We didn’t live in the jungle of course, but the whole environment was just — well, lush. 

Refining the Technique

I did a bit of this in the last piece, “Moonshine” but it’s much clearer here. That is smaller dots within the larger dots. Also tiny dots between the larger ones. I really like the extra texture this can add. Also, it looks kind of like living cells, which is part of what I’m trying to show in these paintings. That is, that everything that exists is made up of not cells exactly, but little packets of energy. 

These energy bits may not fit the technical definition of life, but they sure do seem to have a life of some kind. Mind you, my own take is that everything has some sort of life and some sort of consciousness, albeit very very different from anything we might recognize from our own frame of reference.

I also did something completely different, in that up until this piece, I’ve been using background colors that are a darker version of the main color of the dots in that particular area. Then I paint a heavy black outline around each area of color before painting the dots. 

For this painting, I painted the entire surface black, and drew the composition directly on the black background, so no heavy black outlines as I’ve been using. I’m not sure if I want to keep doing this, but I think it worked in this piece.

This small artwork is available for just $96.00, ready to hang with attached paracord and sides attractively painted black. Or you can frame it if you prefer. Perfect for small or intimate spaces!

The Departure Of The Yin & Yang Expedition

Acrylic on reclaimed wood, 8″x8″

I’ve always been fascinated with old sailing ships. Specifically, those of the 16th & 17th centuries. I don’t know why, but ever since I was quite small they’ve held some sort of a draw for me. Maybe it was Errol Flynn style pirate movies or something. 

The adventurers Yin & Yang are leaving (at night!) for an expedition to parts unknown. Off to explore. To discover. Onward to Adventure! Oh man, I can literally feel the excitement. 

This small artwork is available for just $128.00, ready to hang with attached paracord and sides attractively painted black. Perfect for small or intimate spaces!
