“The Night of Decay”, oil on wood, 36″x36″, $2,400

This peacock painting is my fun excursion into Ultramarine Blue, the Wheel of Fortune tarot card and Jupiter. All the flowers in this composition are poisonous. It was said in ancient times that the peacock consumed venomous animals and plants then converted the poison to its brilliant iridescent-colored feathers.

“The Night of Decay” will be hanging in an art show at the new Ents and Tents Terrarium Gallery space in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood, opening this Friday from 6-9. 1223 2nd Ave. Purchase inquiries may be directed to [email protected]

“The Lunar Phase of Evolution”, oil on wood, 12″x12″ , SOLD

In creating this painting, I found the number which speaks to me most vividly. It’s essence is the Trinity multiplied three times. Nine represents the ultimate, perfect expression, the highest achievement in any endeavor. The Greeks referred to nine as “the horizon” as it lies at the edge of a shore before a boundless ocean of numbers that repeat in endless cycles the principles of the first nine digits.

“The Lunar Phase of Evolution” is currently on display at Confluence Gallery in Twisp, WA. Purchase inquiries may be directed to [email protected]

“The Black Lodge”, 12″x12″, oil on wood, $450

I’m part of a group show called “Otherworlds” at Confluence Gallery where the final three paintings in my Numbers series are on debut. The show will be up through May 20 in Twisp, WA.

“The Black Lodge” explores the number eight which is associated with spiritual elevation or salvation. Creation results in the combination of the four elements; fire, water, air, earth with the four qualities that form them; hot, wet, cold and dry. Several ancient cultures embraced the concept of the grandmother spider weaving the web of matter, intricately crossing polarities, electrons and protons. Also, jumping spiders.

This commissioned moth is my first painting of the year, completed last month. Some spiritual breakthroughs occurred in this one…the concepts of raising our vibration so the unseen may become visible. The camouflaged moth will become visible once we train our eyes to focus in this dim earthy light.

Number 7. The Heptad symbolizes the completion of a divine journey. The title
“Rainbow Bridge” refers to the Buddhist term for the path traveled from
the lower path the the higher path through the seven chakras. The
imagery of the painting is mainly drawn from The Pythagorean concept of
the Music of Seven Spheres, the musical vibration of the seven planets
in ancient alchemy.

Number five. The
Pentad, or “Quintessence”, encompasses the four elements of matter,
infusing the force of life and representing nature’s fecundity. The
pentagram’s self replicating growth is reflected in the Fibonacci
sequence.

The fourth painting in my exploration of the nature of numbers.

In geometry, three points define a flat surface. The fourth point defines depth, volume, and 3-dimensional space.  Alchemy describes these four points as the four
elements: air,
fire, water and earth.

The Triad balances the contrasting forces in nature allowing
for creation to spring forth. It invites unlimited perspective and
possibilities, infinite shades of gray between the polar extremes.

The Dyad describes
duality and is
born out of the
Monad, or number one, in 
replication of itself. The resulting geometry is called
the Vesica Pisces, the shape which
gives birth to every other form. “Two” embodies the nature of polarity: night/day, male/female,
heaven/earth, on/off.
