"Fishing on Elysium" H 48" x W 48"

This digital painting is part of the, "Other Worlds" series which reference my lifetime fascination with exploring the infinite possibilities of parallel universes and what their worlds and the beings that populate them might look like. I'll always remember reading the Dr Zeus book, "Horton Hears a Who" to my daughter Kim and thinking this is how I see myself, an incalculably minute being living on a spinning orb in the middle of unfathomable darkness in the vastness of space. As a child I often wondered why I never fell off, that was before I learned about gravity. My hopes are that the viewers of this series might themselves be inspired to ponder the infinite possibilities afforded to all sentient beings and wonder who's out there and what are they doing.

DIGITAL PAINTINGS

My process in these digital paintings, basically I start by sitting in front of a blank computer screen staring vapidly at it. When the inertia lifts I pick up my mouse and start to paint freehand. For me it is akin to being in front of an easel except there are no toxic chemicals involved. Sometimes like the French artist Andre Masson 1896–1987 who used pen and paper, I let my mouse travel rapidly across my work table without conscious control of what I am creating on the screen creating "Automatic Drawings". Other times my movements are very calculated and mathematical.

LOVE H - 39.5" x W - 48"

LOVE

Homage to William Blake's poem:  "Love and Harmony"

Love and harmony combine,
And round our souls entwine
While thy branches mix with mine,
And our roots together join.

Joys upon our branches sit,
Chirping loud and singing sweet;
Like gentle streams beneath our feet
Innocence and virtue meet.

Thou the golden fruit dost bear,
I am clad in flowers fair;
Thy sweet boughs perfume the air,
And the turtle buildeth there.

There she sits and feeds her young,
Sweet I hear her mournful song;
And thy lovely leaves among,
There is love, I hear his tongue.

There his charming nest doth lay,
There he sleeps the night away;
There he sports along the day,
And doth among our branches play.

William Blake

Virgines Vestales

In ancient Roman and Thracian  religion, the Vestals or Vestal Virgins  were priestesses of Vesta, goddess of the hearth. They tended the sacred fire that was not permitted to go out. The priestesses were freed from the cultural obligations expected of women at that time and took a vow of chastity. The Vestals became a prominent and influential force in the Roman state.

As Above So Below

As Above So Below

H - 53" x W - 40"

Digital Painting

"As Above So Below", a maxim in Hermeticism, a religious and philosophical belief based principally upon writings credited to Hermes Trismegistus ("Thrice Great"). These writings have significantly influenced Western esoteric tradition and were thought to have had great influence during the Renaissance and the Reformation. Much of the impact of Hermeticism came from its connection with the development of science between 1300 to 1600 AD. The importance it placed to the idea of influencing or controlling nature led many scientists to look to magic and its allied arts (e.g., alchemy, astrology).
