    Description

    My work is an homage to the subtle brilliance and magnificence of the natural world; it is an appeal to the mystique and hidden order of our reality. The physical world around us is illusory, as all things are energetic in essence. Our reality is a symphony of vibrations, of interfering and resonating energetic frequencies. Sound, color, heat and matter are all similar electromagnetic waves; everything is light.

     

    My paintings are meant to communicate not only the visual quality of an experience, but rather the cerebral excitement which stems from the gamut of deeper sensitive perception. While I tend to indulge in the empyreal aesthetics of the flora and fauna that I observe, my paintings are intended to express fleeting moments of transcendent sublimity.

     

    Patterns form a foundation upon which resonate the visual motifs and metaphysical energy of the environment, its atmosphere, and its inhabitants. This sympathetic patterning, derived from sacred geometry, alludes to that which is beyond the perceptible, to the ubiquitous structure of the universe; it invokes divinity and visualizes the unseen energetic forces which bind matter, spirit and consciousness.

     

    This painting captures my experience hiking in the Naomi wilderness in the dead of winter, when I was caught off guard by a snowstorm while up in the clouds on the treacherous talus slopes of a ridge high above Green Canyon.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!

    beautiful

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
