bottle tree, life tree, east meets west II, intertwined I, flowers and circles, kettle on

sorry, not much info on these paintings (except that they are all mixed media) as it appears that most of the work on this site is sold as prints...i love the way the work focuses on happy moments...something we all need art to do for us once in a while...see tons more work here.

sunday church drawing

until i collect some new sunday church drawings, we'll look at some older series of drawings. this next series is called 'stain' and was done in 2005 using inks, gouache and colored pencils. as in the flesh series of the last few weeks, i was experimenting with chaos and control, the idea of controlling the happy accident.
