Feminine

Acrylic on canvas
32"x14" available for purchase

Done for a show of old Hollywood black and white. I wanted to capture the feel of the Art Deco period and all the glamour associated with it. I also wanted to use the juxtaposition of black and white the way the Art Deco masters did in their time by using opposite background colors while keeping the paintings the same temperature.

The Blue Equation

Acrylic on canvas
20"x30" available for purchase

This one was a challenge to develop a fluid design that incorporated the two elements I wanted. I chose a yin & yang approach showing how we humans can use the environment of the creatures of the deep in harmony. This painting was done as an entry to an art festival for the Long Beach Aquarium.

Malevolence

Acrylic on canvas
24"x36" available for purchase

Just as the title says (which came first), I wanted to create nothing short of pure "Malevolence". Hence the colors and shapes. I wanted the ultimate in such and a volcano like theme turned on it's side was the answer.

HALO

Acrylic on canvas
24"x36" available for purchase

Originally was meant to be purely abstract, but it took on a life of it's own, and before I knew it HALO had become a surreal vision of a medieval time gone by. Quiet serenity was my goal.

Dreamscape

I wanted to create a surreal image incorporating the elements of earth, fire and water. In this image earth is represented by the foreground of a stylized oak leaf and planets. Fire of cousre is shown as the small sun. And water is the iceberg field. All this in one place as if in a dream.

Vision

Acrylic on canvas board
20"x30" available for purchase

In this painting I wanted to bring in elements of spirit and enlightenment. As the focal charactor crouches in a beam of light eminatiing from a cone shaped membrane that is seemingly made of water and earth, I give him a sense of being watched over and protected as he sits there naked and vulnerable.

CityView

The final version of a commissioned work. I changed the sky to a cool blue with more graphic buildings and less fuss in the sky. I feel the mood of this piece really imparts a sense of calm.

Nebula

Acrylic on canvas

I saw a picture like this of the Eagle Nebula taken by the Hubble telescope. I took that image and embelished it with my own style and detail. I wanted to show off the grandeur of space if that is at all possible.

Pray

Watercolor
31"x22" NFS

This one is very personal. It represents a time of emotional rebirth after a near depression from dealing with a long term illness that was finally over. It is not religious perse, but rather spiritual. As praying is as much an activity done to commune with a god it, is also, to me a way of expressing through meditation, attaining spiritual clarity.

Without Boundries

Watercolor
18"x18" available for purchase

A rectangle or square is all about boundaries. A circle in this case represents no limits in all directions. I look to this painting as a window into her world.
