Land Bridge

11.25″x9″ (approximate measurements – pretty close, anyway) Acrylic on reclaimed scrap wood

Me listening to a podcast and forgetting I had the headphones on when I took the picture.

I’m working with larger sizes and larger drill bits. And therefore more detail in the dots, which I’m really enjoying. The magical ethereal effect is just magnified.

And yes, I’m having as much fun as it looks like!

Bird’s Eye View Over The Fork

Acrylic on MDF panel 6″x6″ $144.00

Just for a change of scenery, we’re looking down on the landscape in this one. Sometimes you want to be among the trees, but sometimes you need the long view.

Traveling

14.25″ x 5.5″ Acrylic on reclaimed wood, $316 (US shipping included)

The little curved black area at the top right and the thin black line at the bottom are not part of the painting, they’re areas where the wood doesn’t conform neatly to the rigid straight lines of the graphic image. What do you expect? It’s leftover wood from some project or other. I think these imperfections give the artworks an extra bit of character. Plus, I feel good that it didn’t go into a landfill. (You can feel good about it too, if you buy it! 😄)

Of course, I make sure to seal the wood with acrylic medium and multiple coats of acrylic gesso before painting to make sure the art itself is as archival as that painted on any traditional support.

I have no idea if people are going to respond positively to the recycled aspect or not, but it means something to me, so I’m going to keep going with it, as well as continuing to paint on traditional supports like panels and canvas.

So what does the title mean? Does it evoke traveling to you? My wife Tekakwitha came up with the title when I was stumped, and I can totally relate to it.

The Pharaoh Sleeps Tonight

The Pharaoh Sleeps Tonight Acrylic on canvas board, 9″x12″

“…in the jungle, the mighty jungle”

My wife said it should be “in the desert” if it’s a pharaoh — but I pointed out that it’s a jungle in the painting. Then she said well then it’s a Central American pyramid. But it’s definitely an Egyptian pyramid. Not at all like the Central American ones. 

Of course the desert was once lush and tropical, so either I’m conflating two different times or this is revisionist archaeology.

Or something…

It’s just a painting. Give me a break.

Island of Eternal Summer

Acrylic on Canvas, 18″x24″

$336.00 + free shipping, CONUS only

The seasons have begun to turn all around, but on the island it’s eternal summer.

That island lives somewhere in my head, but I sometimes lose my way and need to find it all over again. The trick of course, is to not focus on the seasons turning all around. The colder harsher seasons may seem real — but as long as the island exists, are they really?

Fall Reflections

Acrylic on canvas, 11″x14″ $200

I can’t help seeing lollipops when I look at this. Well, fall foliage is eye candy anyway, so I guess that makes sense. Either that, or it’s just my serious sweet tooth kicking up its heels again. (Do teeth have heels? I didn’t think so…)

Anyway, we’re expecting our first shovelable (is that a word?) snow tomorrow, so even though I’m sure it will be pretty as always, it won’t be as colorful as this. I wonder if a snow scene in this style would work? Hmmm….

Autumn at the Pond

11″x14″ Acrylic on canvas $200.00

I wanted to do something larger than 6″ square. It took me a while to finish this one, and not just because of the amount of time it takes to paint that many dots. There’s more thinking and pondering time involved.

When I’m looking at a smaller piece, it’s easier to grasp the entire thing at once. So I know what’s working and what may or may not be needed pretty quickly. Also, because of the small size, there’s only so much I can fit in, given the limit of detail I can get with dots. Unless I use microscopic nanodots (new word!) which isn’t all that appealing to me.

Anyway, I really like the way this one came out. Now I’m thinking I like it so much I’d like to try something even larger. Maybe this is a solution to my ADHD quickly bored, oh look another shiny object over there! Meaning changing up between larger and smaller pieces, each with unique kinds of challenges. Work on big or small pieces until I’m bored, then switch.

When I was a little boy, we moved a lot since my father was in the Foreign Service. So most of my toys went into the shipping crates, and when everything was unpacked months or weeks later, the old toys were new again! 

So like that.

Sparkling River

Acrylic on MDF Panel, 6″x6″ $96.00

Just a little break from all the heavy stuff.  Sometimes you just have to sit back on the porch, put your feet up, and tuck into some apple pie as you enjoy the view.

Apple pie? Mmmmmmmm…

The sides of this artwork are attractively painted black and you can hang it immediately with the attached paracord. Or, you can always frame it — your choice, of course!
