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.

To The River

6″x6″ Acrylic on panel

A magical stroll to the river for a few moments of peace. The river soothes, and as always, teaches. How could it always be the same river yet never the same? 

Like life — my life, any life. Always the same life, but moment to moment never exactly the same, even if only because I’m a moment older than the moment before. Thoughts and emotions have moved through me and even if I don’t feel particularly different, I’m subtly different every moment. 

And yet I’m still myself. The river of me.

Sunrise Over The Hills

Acrylic on canvas board, 6″x6″ $96 (shipping included)


What do you see first? The sunrise or the fire coming over the hills? the first thing I saw was the fire, but after a while I saw a sunrise.

Maybe it’s both. the destruction of a massive fire followed by the promise of a bright new day. Sound familiar? That could apply to a lot of things in life, couldn’t it?

I deliberately made the colors in the dots in some ares more random to add texture. First time I’ve done this. I have a larger one I’ll be posting that’s the second one done that way. This was more of a quick experiment, but I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.

River’s Rising


River’s Rising Acrylic on MDF Panel, 6”x6” $96.00

Combining the Yin/Yang with a reflection on the times we’re in. Maybe it’s not a bad way to put things together. If we can see a little of this in that, them in us, us in them, maybe we can handle the inexorably rising — and apparently turbulent — river that’s surrounding us.

But that tree looks pretty healthy and strong, doesn’t it?

Think it’ll survive the flood? 

I’ve been thinking lately a lot about the economy we’re in, how things are working with so much shut down. Art galleries, for instance. How can an art gallery function normally with social distancing? 

Art lovers have to have the freedom to browse at their leisure, not feel like they have to get in and out quickly. And then there’s the personal shopping and meeting & greeting and excitement at a show opening. Sure, you can see the art online and I guess you could get curbside delivery, but you don’t get the full experience of the artwork itself. 

When I was a young artist living in the Washington DC area, I pored over art books incessantly to soak up everything I could from the masters, both old and new. But going to the many National Galleries was a completely different experience, seeing the actual physical objects and being in their presence was a whole ‘nother level of power. Same thing with regular commercial galleries. 

The physical artwork has a presence, a power that just doesn’t come across on a screen. The handmade object has a level of authority and impact and spirit presence that the flat image cannot convey.

But back to the economies of making a living, or even just covering one’s expenses for materials — that’s one of the reasons platforms like Patreon are so  important to artists of all kinds now.

River’s rising.

Descent

Acrylic on MDF panel, 6″x6″ $96.00

Descent of what exactly, I’m not sure. 

I guess this is one of those instances where abstract meets representational and logic finds somewhere else to hang out for a while.

The logic part had me hesitating to post this but the abstract part kept saying “it’s OK just go for it.” So here we are.
