Flow and Body

Flow and Body (front and back views),
Paint on Acetate over Black Paper, 22 x 14 in., 2007

As promised and now that I have good pics, here is a piece painted in the past few weeks. The figure and white flowing curving form are painted on acetate, or shiny plastic. For the purpose of creating a digital image, the painting on acetate is displayed on black paper so that it may be easily seen. The piece would normally be displayed without the black paper so that both sides can be viewed by walking around the art. So both sides are shown above.

I know I have much to say about this work.. but for now I'd rather let the work speak for itself.

This artwork or laser copies can be purchased - see my complete profile for contact info. and email me for details.

An Energy Body

An Energy Body
(Front and Back views), Paint, Ink and Collage Element on Plexiglas, 8 x 5 inches, 2007


This is one of many artworks I am making on Plexiglas now, so they have 2 sides that can be viewed. This one has a collaged or cut out printed image of a body with internal structures. As I like to do, I transform that "physical" body to an "energy" body on the other side of the piece. Maybe this is healing... definitely expanding awareness to energy.

This is kind of a quick sketch, I am working on more in depth works now.. I'll post more of these kind of 2-sided works when I get good pics!

A Radiating Heart

Radiating Heart, Paint on Plexiglas, 8 x 5 inches, 2007

This is a piece painted directly on plexiglas, so there are a few areas you can see through.

It came out of me quickly. I was working on another large painting and I suddenly had this idea to do a heart that radiates energy. I was struggling to decide what size to make this painting because I knew it was a good idea. I felt like I wanted to make it quickly (and I had only a couple of sizes of plexiglas) so I opted for a pretty small piece. It painted itself with a flurry of creative energy. I just stepped back and let it happen.

Hands with Energy - Heating the Heart

Hands with Energy, Paint and Ink on Paper, 32 x 20 in., 2007

This is a piece I painted just after the previous Aura of a Burning Heart. It kind of came to me as a vision of these hands that would be "healing" the viewer. But then I began to think that the viewer could be the one doing the healing, so I decided to paint the back of the hands as if they could be the viewer's.

The heart found it's way into the work in an interesting way. After I painted the hands, I noticed the space between the hands looked a bit like a rib cage, and so suggested a place where the heart sits.

The energy coming from the hands is energizing the heart and setting it aflame. It could be understood like reiki energy which after a simple attunement anyone can perform. And fortunately, viewing art requires no attunement at all.. Thanks for looking!
