Jungle

“They can put me in a jungle. Still, I can create.” – M. F. Husain The jungle is a dense labyrinth of overgrown trees and unruly wildlife.  It is synonymous with entanglement and puzzling riddles.  This painting illustrates a chaparral or thick brush as it consumes its surroundings. When life bogs you down and you feel as if you were lost in a jungle of fragmented thoughts and feelings, finding your way out can be overwhelming. In those moments you […]

The Scarf

The Scarf

“I’m going to search for my star until I find it. It’s hidden in the drawer of innocence, wrapped in a scarf of wonder.” – Michael Jackson In this painting, Ralph White captures a moment so transient that it is out of focus, allowing us to interpret the action in our own way. The effective use of white adds to the feeling of a girl rushing through the air itself. Her features remain obscured as does her mission.  Her dress […]

Core

Core

“I think art is not an ornament or refinement at the fringes of human intelligence, I think it’s at the center. It’s at the core.” – Robert Pinsky Some say that art is elective or voluntary. So how do you explain that your soul craves the expression of beauty in everything you see?  How do you describe the feeling of color or your gravitation to undefined concepts in need of discovery?  Art is exploration and a continuous effort to create […]

Rogue Wave

Rogue Wave

“Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Changes are like waves rolling back and forth.  They can bring great opportunities or painful growth.  As humans, we tend to resist change as it causes an upheaval of comfort.  Embracing change is always a gamble. This painting is called Rogue Wave as it represents a shift in tides.  It reminds us that while we may […]

This painting is called Stratosphere as it features a flow of cosmic rays symbolizing positive energy.  These rays are glowing reminders of the visions in […]

Vortex

Vortex

“The image is more than an idea. It is a vortex or cluster of fused ideas and is endowed with energy.” – Ezra Pound A vortex is a whirling mass such as a whirlpool, flame, or tornado.  It draws in everything around it and causes a powerful current of chaos and disarray. This painting is called Vortex and it was inspired by an emotional flux.  The spinning motion in this painting leads to the center of enlightenment and self-preservation.  Amid […]

Aviary

Aviary

“Ideas are like birds. If you don’t keep them, they fly away.  If you write them down, they become birds of aviary; anytime you want to hear them tweet, you visit them.” – Unknown A delightful tribute to creatures of the air, Aviary features several images of birds.  Some are evident while others require the imagination to coax into view. The colors in the painting are bold and expressive as to highlight the blending of the seen and the unseen […]

The grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas.” – Henry Ford Optimism is the key to success.  When you radiate, or shine with positivity and confidence, it will be revealed in everything you do. This painting is called Shine as it produces light and vivacity.  The ripples of […]
