That Which Is Soft, That Which Is Hard

The new, with the old. In the flow. In harmony.

Beauty Found

The beauty of Acadia, at our feet.

Memory in Pigment

I had reason to go through some old images, looking for some work related photo, and came across this painting that I had done some years ago. It's one those works that I can hardly remember doing. Strange really, and yet strangely appealing on account of its honesty.

There is some sadness to it as well, some wrenching thing that the world can do to a person sometimes, drawing you into some strange state or place, even temporarily, almost like an image in a mirror you might behold, in passing, in a dream.

Creative Expression

Yes, that really is satisfying.

My old stomping grounds, at the foot of the Chelsea, Massachusetts side of the Mystic/Tobin Bridge. With sea breeze in the air, it was a quiet area, with the bustle of Boston, right, over, there.

Night Vortex

My latest solo work, and I have never had to say that before, is shown above. This represents a new direction for me. I do enjoy having this work on my wall. A friend told me that every room should have something black in it. Yes, I think that could be true.

Et al

The paintings above represent the collaborative efforts of Dr. Ju and me, to date. Most of the pieces have yet to be signed, which should complete the works. It has been quite an adventure so far, and great fun. The overriding theme of these works is cross cultural exploration, and I feel we are just getting started.
