Most recent artwork - "Gateways" (below), 72" x 48"', completed January 2021. Click on the image below for a more detailed view from my Artwork Archives web page. Even more views are available at my Singulart web page.

 "Gateways", 72" x 48", oil on canvas, $9000

"Gateways" was finished 7 Jan 21 and will now dry for one month before final varnishing.  This will deepen the blue-black sky and enrich all the colors more than you will see in these current images.  In the additional images section I include several work-in-progress photos as well as detailed views of several areas of the painting.  The photo showing the work on its side is where the artwork will rest as it dries.

The idea for the painting came from a vision I had over 50 years ago about how our day to day reality and the eternity of the present are connected.  Are the buildings worms and snakes being sucked into the stars, or are the stars openings into forever from which all our realities pour out into our existence?  I am the male figure in the street.  The woman in the window above the man is my wife, Emma.  We, like you, are here for a little while.  Amazing, eh?  Enjoy!  I will post new photos once the varnishing has been completed.

"Here We Are" (below), 40" x 72"', completed Sept 2020. Click on the image for a more detailed view.

                             "Here We Are", 40" x 72", oil on canvas, $7500

In the midst of dark times politically, economically, and in terms of the pandemic, "Here we Are" shows the wonders of nature and the possibility for serenity and happiness on our small planet.  The giant star is an X-ray image of our sun.  The title asks the viewer to focus on the here and now, which is the gateway to all universes. The honeybee is actually closer to the viewer than the flowers in the foreground, a natural shock generator that attempts to wake the viewer up to the importance of the present.

"Topology 101" (below), 4' x 6', completed July 2020. Click on the image for a more detailed view.

"Topology 101: Imagine Space Inside-Out", 44" x 72", oil on canvas, $7500
