Playground / Secret Alliance


I've always been
the new kid
navigating a playground
of invisible alliances,
the new hire
reconnoitering a terrain
of secret agendas - 
sans org chart.

The artist
attempting to discern
cohesive relationships
that transform abstraction
into working universe.
 
This is a 10" x 15.5" acrylic and ink painting on Bainbridge mat board. The above text inscribed on the back and signed by the artist.

This work and others are available in the artist's Etsy shop.







Elizabeth Park Shade Garden

Todays offering. . . a sketch from the shade garden in Elizabeth Park, an artist's sanctuary on a sweltering June day.

Elizabeth Park is famous for the rose gardens where you can wander its paths savoring the views,  transported by the enchanting perfume of hundreds of roses.

Blue Body


 2am dream
underground stream flowing
through dark rooms
where
someone vaguely familiar
in a party of strangers
seems a safe eddy
becomes a dead end
is a trap.

Gotta go
find the exit
feel the current
push down
out
up, up, up.
Rising free
eyes open 
to total blackness.


6 1/4" x 14 1/2" acrylic paint and marker on matboard, text and signature of the artist appears on the back.

This work is available in the artist's Etsy store.

In the Heart of Darkness

Flights of color
in the heart of darkness.

More expressions through watercolor and ink.





Primal Influence

Flowing within flowing,
constant transformation
of relationship between elements. 
 My view of
reality,
truth,
destiny.

Expressed with watercolors and ink.


Song of the Didgeridoo


Back in the studio after another long hiatus, using watercolors and my favorite flowing organic forms inspired by the music of the Del Sol Quartet with Stephen King, playing the Sculthorpe Complete String Quartets with Didgeridoo.
