The Messenger

48×36 Acrylic, Raw Pigment, and Gold on Canvas

The Messenger

Out of a great void arrives a messenger.

There are times when truth can be unsettling.
The myths to which we cling can leave us in darkness where we may be content to believe we know ourselves, our world, or even our universe.

The Messenger can arrive in passion, maybe even love, to disrupt our self generated myths.

We ultimately must trust and allow ourselves to hear the message so we can rise up from our complacency and explore our lives with authenticity.

On the Brink of Civilization

On the Brink of Civilization • 48×36 • Acrylic and Gold on Canvas

On the Brink of Civilization

Peering through the windows of history, we find all the lessons, the errors, and the achievements that bring us to this present moment.

This is the moment in which we ask ourselves, “Are we civilized yet?”

What cost, civilization?

New Guardian

New Guardian 36×36 Acrylic and Gold on Canvas

Changing of the guard does not always mean changing of the environment.

A Guardian is sacred but that which he guards is what makes him sacred.

One can hope and believe the words from the mouth of the guardian.

The words are seeds that inspire change in the hearts of the guarded.

But it is after the guardian demonstrates his intent, that we feel safeguarded and hope is justified.

May the seeds grow into a strong tree to shelter Humanity from harsh storms.

May we all support the New Guardian with our own efforts, to nourish the soil that has been so parched.

Sancti Terra Bellum

Sancti Terra Bellum 48×48 Acrylic and Gold on Canvas

Sancti Terra BelumAll land is Holy Land.

When we create war with one another, create war with the land, try to divide it into territories, we diminish the sanctity of our lives as well as the sacred land upon which we exist.

Animus Rising

Animus Rising • 48×36 • Acrylic on Canvas

Textured with black emerging from the void as a powerful, masculine red attempts to dominate the canvas, barely contained by the clarity and understanding of white.

Within each woman is the animus or masculine, just as each man has an anima or feminine aspect within him.

This painting expresses the conflict and masculine aggression that can occur when a woman struggles to bring her animus into balance so that her feminine nature can thrive.

Maslow’s Mesa

Maslow’s Mesa • 60×48 • Acrylic and Gold on Canvas

Maslow's Mesa

Self Actualization may come in steps, but is there really an hierarchy?

Maybe we experience elements of “Self” Actualization intermittently, even if we are hungry or we feel alone.

City

36×36 Acrylic and Gold on Canvas

City

36x36Acrylic and Gold on Canvas

Los Angeles, California: A city of Creativity (gold) attempting to manuever it’s way through the grids of complicated, somewhat chaotic, pathways.

The heat, the lights, the random paths, the intensity, all combine to call out to the creative individual around the edges. Yet, so many are left on the fringes. Once the gold does penetrate the grid, it tends to conform to the path of chaos. The purity of the gold can become diluted or it can stand out from the rest of the colors when it adheres to it’s origianl path without becoming consumed.
