Flight of the Raven

My first finger-painting since the third grade.  I’ve always wondered how effective it would be. The answer? For a guy with big fingers, I can’t get any detail.  I’m going back to brushes for the next one, but it was fun to ‘roll around in the mud’, if you will, and stretch my wings. AsContinue reading “Flight of the Raven”

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”

The Murder

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”

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”

Alien Flower

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

First Contact – It will probably not be a sentient being we run into at first.
