Magic Hour

The hour when darkness settles is my favorite of the day. All the colors calm and simplify, while the sky riots in a progression of hues… changing attitude subtly every few moments… and watching is like hearing a grand orchestra play Beethoven. The first stars shimmer, and all the world seems so close and so possible. I used simple white line for the mystical additions because sometimes it seems you can see magic if your eyes were only strong enough to detect the translucency. The icons symbolize different facets of the wonder I experience (and yep… that’s a gnome under a toadstool).

The Shelter

This piece was born of the color, grandeur, and stability that is the sacred experience of loving another person. Some of the things I can’t articulate about this adventure with Ryan are painted in these colors and symbols. Some of them were intentional and symbolic specifically for us, but please feel it for YOU… What are the things that bring you more vibrant life? Pause. Celebrate. Be awed and grateful. Original specifics: Acrylic paint on canvas Options: 11 x 15″ archival-quality print on watercolor-weight paper 11 x 15″ archival-quality print on watercolor-weight paper, matted to 16 x 20″ 5 x 7″ print mounted on backboard and finished with a UV coating, to be framed...

Night & Day

This recently-completed piece was inspired by one of my favorite songs, which contains the phrase “night has always pushed up day, you must know life to see decay”. This is the image those beautiful, hopeful words give me. And yes, graffiti also seems to be a recurring theme in my recent stuff. 🙂 It’s a fun departure from the more traditional themes of my earlier work.

Inscribed

“Inscribed”, a charcoal & graphite piece, is the oldest (circa ’06) of my work that is available for the viewing of the general populace. 🙂 It was inspired by a friend of mine, who read the verse “I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands” during the difficult experience of losing a family member to cancer. The visual of Jesus’ wounds provided her with a lot of comfort, and her description of her thoughts resonated with me.

Jazz

This is “Jazz”. In this painting, I tried to capture what jazz… and melancholy, bluesy music in general… makes me feel. A conflicting jumble of aching and reveling. And I wanted to celebrate the unresolved. The dissonant. In the world and in me. Redemption will come. It will be made right. But redemption might not be so breath-taking if the broken is pretended away. Here’s what I did to try  to portray all that:Blue and red are conflicting colors. The human eye can’t process them both simultaneously. True story.The graffiti and more urban style felt fitting because life is simply more raw and honest on street level.The drummer facing away from the black circle,...
