from here to here

The desert painting which began as a sketch on a piece of paper scrap from a friend which transformed into a vast, panoramic dreamtime Dali-esque, desert scene, footsteps disappear into the dune landscape, and not too far in the distant horizon a desert oasis mirage, dream or reality, the desert painting has been quite the pilgrimage, creative explorations to be continued…

Stages in desert painting, one early rendering, perhaps a loose blueprint and the last a near completed painting.

and a special message from Mahaloness, violence is not the answer. That is all for now.

many faces

Throughout my career as an artist, I have painted many faces, from the famous to the unknown, all different and unique in their own beautiful way.

five

When I make art there many things that are on my mind. Knowing this I work at my concentration, even if the world is asking me to pay attention. To concentrate is to discipline the mind while remaining open to a myriad of possibilities, this applies to life and art, perhaps one and the same, perhaps something else we don’t know about, and thats alright with me.

animal human

In the book Man and his Symbols there is said to be an anima and animus within every man and woman. There is also an animal element which is a theme that comes up in my work, reminding us of our connection with all living beings on our planet, and the Earth herself. As humans continue to hurt the environment due to progress it is clear as day that we must act as stewards now more than ever before.
