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.

River Rocks

12’x12″ Acrylic on canvas

Well of course the river rocks! But also of course I’m talking about the rocks in the river. Which also rock, because as you can see, they’re living rocks. Everything is energy, everything has life and awareness, even though we might not recognize it as such. 

Each rock is its own energy system. Every river is its own energy system. Then the river and the rocks together are a higher energy system. Much like the cells in our body are individual energy systems, as are the more complex tissues, on to our organs, and finally our entire human self.

It’s worth keeping in mind that all of reality is an infinitely nested series of energies with ever more complex and beautiful types of life and awareness.
