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.

The Sacred Heart Of Mother Earth

Acrylic on canvas, 11″x14″

This is my largest dot painting to date. I like how Mother’s heart is sparkling with energy and life! If you find it resonates with you more, substitute “God” for “Mother Earth.” However you say it, all that life is borne of love and sustained by love.

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!

The One That Got Away

Acrylic on MDF panel, 6”x6”

Note: The one that got away isn’t any more beautiful than the others. No better. But its unique destiny was to get away and chart its own flight path away from the others. 

A lot of dots within dots on this one. And I know it’s a little dark, but it’s meant to convey the idea of night, that when you chart your own path away from the crowd sometimes you may feel you have to do it away from the bright glare of the noonday sun. Especially applies to artists (and most of my friends!), I think!

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!

Lush

Acrylic on panel, 6”x6”

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.

Moonshine

Acrylic on panel, 6″x6″

Moonshine is more subtle than sunshine, gentler, romantic and whisper quiet. And just look how it caresses the trees. Lucky trees.

I’ve actually been painting, but haven’t posted in a while because three of the last paintings taught me that they didn’t work with this pointillist technique.

As I experiment more with the dotting style, I’m learning more not just about the technique itself, but also what kind of drawing and imagery works best with it.

Most of my career as an artist has been as a cartoonist or humorous illustrator, so I am very comfortable with a cartoony style. But I don’t want a childish look for these, which the last three were. For instance, Keith Haring’s work was definitely on the cartoony side, but not childish.

I think what I’m really trying to achieve is a blend of a cartoony happy vibe with a bit of a mysterious (and ultimately unknowable) metaphysical undercurrent, or subtext.

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.

Star Featherheart


Acrylic on reclaimed wood, 6”x10″

So is this someone’s name, or is it a metaphor for how life works? These are the sorts of thoughts that keep my mind occupied and happy. But of course, it doesn’t have to mean anything, does it?

The Pink Road

Acrylic on canvas, 10″x10″

Sometimes it’s just because the colors work together. But if you have some interpretation of this painting that means something to you, I’d really be interested in hearing it!

This small artwork is available for just $160.00. The sides are painted black so you can display it right away, but I recommend framing it. Perfect for small or intimate spaces!

Spinning Sun

Acrylic on reclaimed wood, 5″x14″

I think sometimes that maybe the sun just can’t help itself from spinning like a pinwheel and radiating out life and light. And in that light all that other life stuff like love and joy. 

You have to respect the sun for its unfathomable power, but I wonder if it has a fun side also. I think it must. 

This small artwork is is available for just $152.00, ready to hang with attached paracord and sides attractively painted black. No framing required or desired. Perfect for small or intimate spaces!
