    Description

    My work is an homage to the subtle brilliance and magnificence of the natural world; it is an appeal to the mystique and hidden order of our reality. The physical world around us is illusory, as all things are energetic in essence. Our reality is a symphony of vibrations, of interfering and resonating energetic frequencies. Sound, color, heat and matter are all similar electromagnetic waves; everything is light.

     

    My paintings are meant to communicate not only the visual quality of an experience, but rather the cerebral excitement which stems from the gamut of deeper sensitive perception. While I tend to indulge in the empyreal aesthetics of the flora and fauna that I observe, my paintings are intended to express fleeting moments of transcendent sublimity.

     

    Patterns form a foundation upon which resonate the visual motifs and metaphysical energy of the environment, its atmosphere, and its inhabitants. This sympathetic patterning, derived from sacred geometry, alludes to that which is beyond the perceptible, to the ubiquitous structure of the universe; it invokes divinity and visualizes the unseen energetic forces which bind matter, spirit and consciousness.

     

    This painting is an interpretation of my experience hiking along the rolling foothills of the eastern bench of the Wellsville mountains, west of Mendon, Utah on a brisk and arid day in October.

    The artist's description of this scene caused me to look further at the tiny details in the background. The dots of paint which loosely define the buildings are so thoughtful and intriguing. This is a fantastic work of art!

    Beautiful Composition, Color and Light

    This painting stands out for it's carefully nuanced effects, excellent use of line (drawing), and values, and flowing, balanced composition. Upon first look, however, the technical reasons for this painting's success are far from my mind; I'm drawn into the story and imagine the plaintive vibrato of the widower's violin.
