Sketching in Sahara with paint/charcoal. When I was little my parents were all set to buy a retired Race Horse named Sahara Shizad. We had a coral for her. She wasn’t white but I’m going to paint her white. They didn’t end up buying her. I was so sad. I always wondered where she went, if she was still alive. I would have taken such good care of her. The corralmay be burned downthis past summer. But I can sure paint my memories •WRECKED• series

Started a big New one 4ftx5ft. I’m going to add in geometric elements to this one as well as some neon. Her face is raw, no detail. Look closely there’s more than a woman’s face. This one is going to be a bit of a story

A few retouched

Slight retouch of this koi 48x48, added in more dimension and bright contrasts. I like to think the koi I lost last month are living inside this piece. #abstractart #abstractthought #koi #contemporaryart #modernart #art #decor #gallery #exhibitionseries #americanartist #japan #largeart

Geometrics, Linear Art, physics

I have been consumed with my new idea for my geometric series. To add in hints of physics to tell a story. Math and science is everywhere. I'm not talking about tedious 7th grade math, my thoughts are focused on looking at space, time, nature, life and death. Seeing the connections. The Golden Ratio can be found all through nature. And time is ever present. We can all feel it. Sometimes it is almost tangible.  This series is going to take me a long time, but I am led to do it. I haven't added on any equations yet.

Busy summer

I've severely neglected posts on my blog.  My girls we're home and we have a new Airdale Terrier puppy named Boe keeping us busy.  My nephew and his beautiful bride were married. We flew our daughters to Seattle for my birthday, then drove down to Eugene, Oregon for th wedding. The blue painting below is their wedding present from us.

Said goodbye to two of my paintings this past weekend.  I love these pieces so it's was extremely hard.

Commission 36x36. Based on my 48x48.  The collector loved the larger one but didn't have the space. Thick textures on the blooms
