Radiance

Radiance

“Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen – that stillness becomes a radiance.” – Morgan Freeman Learning how to let life flow can be challenging.  We must be reminded that each moment is a new opportunity to find freedom and to let go of the things that cannot be controlled. This painting is called Radiance for its graceful tides of tranquility. The burnt-orange and yellow represent warmth and rejuvenation.  Make a daily appointment to […]

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.” – Jo Walton I’ve always wanted to dive into a sunset, getting lost in the colors as they melt the day into the night. Often times we forget to live in the moment as we throw ourselves into tomorrow’s plans and worries, wasting each sunrise and sunset without glancing at them. I think that those moments you spend watching the sun […]

Rusted Sun

Rusted Sun

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.” – Walt Whitman On the hottest day of any given year, the heat of a Rusted Sun spreads across the atmosphere as if it restrains itself from bursting into a blaze. This remarkable sphere contains all the beauty and energy of the most prehistoric fires. The yellow flares against the dark crimson surface remind us of molten and the smoldering conception of a fiery planet. Sometimes […]

Wanderlust

“A desire to travel, to understand ones very own existence.” – Unknown “Only the curious have, if they live, a tale worth telling at all.” – Alistair Reid Wanderlust is an intense desire or impulse to travel. We travel to be enlightened and to experience new adventures.  We travel to find love. We travel to fill our souls with purpose and to overcome fears.

Spindrift

Spindrift

“My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea, and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow A spindrift is the spray or mist of the sea from the crests of the waves by the wind. This painting is called Spindrift as it highlights the strengths between the sun, the sea and the wind.  The colors are exaggerated to describe the majestic setting of the sun into the […]

Aurora

Aurora

“There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in contrast.” – Charles Dickens Nature is a frequent inspiration for my paintings. Whenever I find myself wondering what to paint, I never have to look far to find something intriguing in the world outside my window. I am forever fascinated with the beauty and power of the original creation, and the challenge of expressing my human reaction to this amazing design is both humbling and enlightening. In […]

Threshold

“This is the solstice, the still point of the sun, its cusp and midnight, the year’s threshold and unlocking, where the past lets go of and becomes the future; the place of caught breath, the door of a vanished house left ajar…” – Margaret Atwood, Eating Fire: Selected Poetry 1965-1995 This bold painting challenges us to simplify our objectives. The complex essence of sea and sky is set down as two distinct elements.  We are immediately drawn to the line […]

“Work until you no longer have to introduce yourself.” – Unknown Whether it is with business relationships or social interactions, networking is a building block of society.  A few reasons for making connections would be to learn something new, inspire and help others, or to remind us of what is truly important. This painting is a powerful display of connection. The invasion of the red paint symbolizes influence and determination as it boldly travels across the canvas to make itself […]

Cosmos

Cosmos

“I realized then that even though I was a tiny speck in an infinite cosmos, a blip on the timeline of eternity, I was not without purpose.” – R.J. Anderson, Ultraviolet Finding the meaning of life and why we exist is an integral part of our survival. We will spend a huge portion of our lives searching for our purpose. Maybe we were created to explore that lingering question, “Why am I here?” It certainly will not be solved in […]

Voltage

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla “Without discipline in spiritual pursuits, the central nervous system doesn’t have a chance to adjust and grow with the increased demand. It would be like putting a high voltage into a small bulb – it is bound to explode.” – Sivananda Radha Saraswati Art is impulsive without apology. It either electrifies or repels. It can influence or evoke resistance.  […]
