My time has been sucked up by other, more worldly needs lately, so here is another video of my artwork from around Spring. I created it in the bowels of the night while my insomnia had me staring at the ceiling. The music lends an Edward Scissorhands / dreamy feel to the composition. All theContinue reading “Busy, but…”

My favorite time of the year is here, Fall/Halloween. I’ve geared up the darker art to celebrate. This one I call “the Watcher”. I love gargoyles, so I painted one. The bushes are a combination of fantasy and berries I encounter on my daily walks. Techniques used include spray paint, acrylic paint, brushwork, finger-painting, andContinue reading “The Watcher”
“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”
This one comes straight from depression. I call it ‘The Murder’, if you know your object quantifiers, you’ll figure it out. It’s a combination #spray #paint and #acrylic brushwork on #canvas. It’s also part of my #light series. I think I’ll probably go back and do some touch-ups. The camera didn’t catch the depth ofContinue reading “The Murder”
An abstract vision of what an alien flower would look like. This is an acrylic on canvas painting. I used air-duster cans, some brush and gravity/splatter techniques in the composition of the artwork. 18 x 24, 2016. The view from straight on. A side-view, which shows the textures used in the piece.
First Contact – It will probably not be a sentient being we run into at first.
A Cheeky Artist Statement
I’m waiting for paint to dry so I decided to do a tongue in cheek artist statement for my work in video format. Enjoy!
The Path and the Process
I suppose I should talk a little bit about my process. Every artist goes about her or his projects in a different way. Most will sketch whatever comes to mind and come back to it later. For me, I don’t use sketch books. My ideas usually hit me either when I’m out getting some exerciseContinue reading “The Path and the Process”
Getting Past the Background
I’m finding it challenging to overcome a a certain aspect of painting. I’m not sure about other artists, but backgrounds are my problem. I’m not saying they’re challenging in that they are hard to paint, rather, that I find that I paint them in a way that I’m hesitant to alter them with what isContinue reading “Getting Past the Background”
Tying It All Together
I’m always practicing new techniques. This was an attempt at capturing the vision of running water through a forest. The cool thing about practice, is that a piece can turn out horrendous, absolutely beautiful or somewhere in between, but it doesn’t matter. I’ve already professed a love of nature, and have been trying to improveContinue reading “Tying It All Together”
As I post this, I have been on a viewing tour of the art museums in Baltimore and Washington DC. Apparently, I was subconsciously impressed by what I saw in the abstract collections. I’ve done several works in the abstract vein as a result; drawing upon the likes of Gauguin, Seurat, Van Gogh and CézanneContinue reading “Abstract Art”
