Open Studios May 6 & 7


I've made about 25 tiny paintings in the past 3 months. Here are two examples that show that some are very simple and some very intricate. The top piece is an homage to the plight of Africans who were taken out of their homeland in slavery and have yet to find a sense of overall societal equality and respect. The second piece was sourced from an angry moment.

"Brother - Where Am I"
Gouache
4" x 4"

"Shaman Dance"
Gouache
6"x5"

Photographing the subtlety of gouache is basically impossible, but here is the gist of one of my new images. My imagery has to do with humans as conscious/unconscious beings. Time and place are abstracted into unlimited spacial concepts.

I have been creating a number
of small paintings. At this point
in time I am not publishing them publicly.
Ah, the mysteries of the world...

"Imp on a Hill"

I have been spending time in California hills, which inspired me to add more details to this tiny piece. When I'm in a wild environment I enjoy the feeling of being enveloped by the sparkle of natural life, so I added wildflowers to the sky. Added more people below to enjoy the scene.

Please excuse the pink, which should instead be a uniform warm corn color. My images are getting larger which means I can no longer scan for accurate color.
