Art for the Homeless

I’ve been doing random acts of kindness for the homeless for a while now, 2-3 lunches instead of just mine, coffee for my man hanging in Starbucks to keep warm, a buck or two here and there…  I’m going to say this up front, I’m not tooting my own horn.  I firmly believe that inContinue reading “Art for the Homeless”

Berries

“Berries”, a fluff piece really; designed to get me painting again. I’d lost the Muse for a moment, so I just went with what I felt. This is a combination of acrylics, extremely watered down to look like… errr, watercolors. I then used some spray painting (nice fumes on that one) with stencils and theseContinue reading “Berries”

Castle S

I’ve completed another painting. I’m experimenting with fog / mist. It’s a process. I didn’t do so well on this one; hence ‘Castle S’. I’m going to call it a practice piece for the next work,  in which this will be the background for the action in that scene. This is 16 x 20, acrylicContinue reading “Castle S”

Gathering of Souls

‘Gathering of Souls’: People once believed that when someone dies in battle, a raven flies at dusk to carry their soul to the land of the dead. This is a rescue painting. Originally it was going to be a geometric design based on the Old Futhark rune for prosperity, which looks like an angular versionContinue reading “Gathering of Souls”

Castle’s Fall

Nestled in the hills overlooking the sleepy valley, the Sandmen of Castle Dream-guard keep watch on the distance.  For in the far-off mists the armies of the nightmare realm gather for their nefarious purposes. The castle is modeled on my favorite, Lichtenstein Castle. Spray Paint and Acrylic on Canvas, 18 x 24.  Unframed. Available for purchase here.

Harvest Knights

“Harvest Knights” Acrylic and Spray Paint on Canvas, 18 x 24. Deep in the night, under the blood moon a pair of knights rush along a deserted road, past ruins of long forgotten folk towards an urgent engagement. At least that’s the idea. The skills never match the concept.  

Rites of Spring

Deep in the night as the vernal equinox reaches its apex; while the moon blankets the land in cold light; the sleeping children of Nature stir.  The trees begin the dance of awakening, twisting and undulating in reverent celebration.  Their movement coaxes the Earth Mother to coalescence; like the creation of a galaxy, swirling, spinning, concentrating the forcesContinue reading “Rites of Spring”

January; A Light Study

Okay, I’m leaving this one like it is and starting another. I like the forlorn nature of the #painting. A cold January evening, as the last rays of the light ephemerally touch the clouds, the tree embraces the cold brilliance of the street lamp in hopes of seeing the Sun again. I was going toContinue reading “January; A Light Study”

Flanders Fields Forever

Flanders Fields Forever. This piece commemorates the lives lost in the great European wars, and Europe’s eventual turn to unity. It is also a rebuke of this century’s tempest, where those twisted souls who would shed blood in the name of God, no matter by what name he is called, are rebuked and their bloodshedContinue reading “Flanders Fields Forever”
