Activity


Orient Beach
Oil on Canvas, 12x12" This painting is of a distant storm off the coast of St. Martin. This area of the island is called Orient Beach. Gorgeous sandy beach with turquoise water.

OuterBanks NC
Oil on Canvas 12"x16" Outer Banks NC.  This painting proved to be more difficult than I had thought it would be. Outbanks is a cool place, generally you can get an ocean sunset or sunrise. That's important for me because I live on the East Coast in the US.

Into the trees
Oil on Canvas, 12"x16" San Diego Bay Sunset. 
About 70% of this painting is a palette knife application. I almost went full palette knife, but I didn't want to potentially ruin the painting out of sheer principle. I'm still up in the air if it's finished or not, but it's finished "enough" for now.

Corridor of St Martin
Oil on Canvass, 20"x20" Image was originally a sunset picture of Maho Beach, but I obviously took an artistic license and made it more dramatic. Used a split-complementary color scheme  
Loading...
Concatenation
Oil on Canvas 11"x14" Same Californian Coast as "Red Gaze". I built this off the platform of RG, primarily because I sold it immediately and needed another one to replace it. It's a little darker, more vibrant, etc. Well, at least I think so, but ultimately it's up to the viewer to decide. Spent maybe 5 disconnected hours.

Interests
I work, and work, and produce, and produce. The aim is fuzzy but the target is there. You can't discern it with any clarity, however your goal looms like a giant planet rising from the surface, just opaque and distant. It's a paradoxical mix to both prospect the future and be actively tuned into the present. An exercise in futility or perhaps an exercise in controlling two seemingly powerful forces that demand heavy burdens of energy and focus. For years, art has been a friend, a foe, an indifferent paragon that has helped shape the present. The reality is, Art is a vehicle. A vehicle to take me to that distant place; that rising terraform or.. the next level. I'm approaching exit velocity but my navigation is still lacking.
