At This Time Even Red Coats Pray Please Have Mercy on America And Deliver It From The Evil That Seeks to Destroy It As Told by Chris Matthews

At This Time Even Red Coats Pray Please Have Mercy on America And Deliver It From The Evil That Seeks to Destroy It As Told by Chris Matthews    11" by 14"
My new painting just finished, and when I looked at it, I thought lo and behold that is Chris Matthews.
With a sad expression on his face, a red coat and a tri- corner hat, I read the painting to say we have many allies throughout the world who pray for our deliverance from the evil that has set upon our beautiful country.
Goodness and decency always prevail.
Our democracy will prevail.
We will rid ourselves of the evil.
And it will be soon.

I Am Not an Artist to Paint a Painting Someone Else Has Already Painted

I am not an artist to paint a painting someone else has already painted.
If you look at my art and do not find it very strange, I have not accomplished what I have set out to do, and that is to paint a completely original painting in a style where no one has ever gone before.
It is the rake of raw color over rough white canvas.
It subjects the absurdities of life (sometimes so absurd I can coax a smile out of you)
My work is on one level very simple, no heavy background, but on the other hand very complex, as the colors and lines morph into intricate tales.
I generally paint on a white canvas to let the color shine in it's purity as it was intended to when created.
Also the wide open areas of white in my painting indicate the openness of real life where things are usually never piled on top of each other, and because I am a science buff this is also indicative of the fact most of reality IS empty space.  
You will never get my paintings at one glance or even fifty glances, and that is what I think fine art should be, an exercise for the mind.

New Painting "Butter Pecan Morphing of Masked Identities"

Butter Pecan Morphing of Masked Identities    3 Feet by 4 Feet

This painting is done in one color of gorgeous butter pecan brown.
As you look at the painting the different faces morph into each other.
Can't say no more, cause I don't know no more bout it.
I just know that I like it.
I like it a lot.
One word does come to mind though when looking at this painting and that word is pure. It has such a pureness to it that when I started it, I intended to do a very complex painting, but after the application of just the one color, I knew it needed absolutely nothing else, it was complete.

New Painting "Solve the Equation of Life and You're All Set"

Solve the Equation of Life and You're All Set    3 Feet by 4 Feet
This painting was done with color changing paint.
When viewed from a distance as in this photo, you see a smooth sheen.
When viewed up close as the photo below you see the stickiness of life most of us mire ourselves in.
A comfortable glue that keeps us in the same spot repeating the same thing over and over again.
I will give you only one tip to deciphering the code.
If you provide no outline of the life you wish to live, you will not choose your life, it will be chosen for you.

The Montagues and the Capulets, Witches and Warlock Style, A Tale as Old as Shakespeare

The Montagues and the Capulets Witches and Warlock Style, A Tale as Old as Shakespeare  3 Feet by 4 Feet
Looking to the left of the painting you see a huge Warlock with purple hair and his Witch wife below him. 
In the center of them and in the center of the painting, you see their daughter with a green headpiece and brown tail looking longingly back at her young love.
The object of her affection is also accompanied by his two parents both with bright blue hair. 
Their son has a green bill, a blue eye and a brown body. He is making direct eye contact with his Juliet with a pining expression.
She is an only child princess from a rich powerful family, while he is lost among the tangle of his siblings, including the twins, the show off older brother and the family pet monkey.
At the very bottom of the painting is the evil witch who cast the spell of separation of the two lovers.
She has a very large blue face and golden hair
And since this is a parade of Witches and Warlocks there are at least 25 to be found in this painting.
See if you can find them.
The colors are pastel colors, pink, green blue, brown , yellow and purple.

The Joy of Art is It's Imperfection

Catching a perfect object imperfectly is what fine art is.
It is the interpretation of an object, filtered through the artists eye and hand.
It is rough color raked across a canvas embedding in the very fiber of the canvas.
What adheres and what does not , IS the painting 
A perfect cat becomes an imperfect cat 
Fat Cat  5" by 7"

Becoming a perfect painting of a cat, quite perfect in all it's imperfection, thus completing the circle, as all is a circle in life.

New Paintings - My Life on The Road to Arkansas and Symbolism of a Stag and The Child Within The Man

My Life on The Road to Arkansas   3 Feet by 4 Feet

This painting is of a two headed stag, one head dropped and serious and the other head raised and laughing.
Stags lower their antlers when ready to do battle.
This painting tells us in the game of life there are times to laugh and live, and times to do battle for what we want. This battle here indicates battles with self not with others as the figure is one.
The Stag is wearing a Cheongsam which is a traditional Chinese dress Cheongsam
A cheongsam can be worn for all occasion as they serve as a bridge between moderation and luxurious elegance
The color of the dress is Inchworm Green.
Inchworms lack appendages in the middle portion of their body, causing them to have a characteristic looping gait.
Looking closely at the journey one can see many faces interwoven in the journey path, both male and female.
The Child Inside the Man   3 Feet by 4 Feet
This painting is quite haunting and as such needs to be hung in a very large room, as the further you are from the painting, the more haunting it becomes.
It is literally a huge man with a child inside himself.
The child is reaching for a toy.
When viewed from a different perspective the child turns into a smiling mans face.
The colors are exquisite, a sunflower yellow, light teal and powder blue. 
The child is a dark dark red.

Each Painting Tells a Complex Story In One Frame / Modern Day Hieroglyphics

The Queen  36" by 48"
Each painting tells a complex story in one frame, and paintings are not complete until they do tell a story.
The story is not immediately revealed without intense study (a bit like Egyptian hieroglyphics), and the story revealed to one, may be a different story than what is revealed to another. 
The story I see revealed is the title of the painting.
I do not like to say that my interpretation is the correct interpretation, as I paint without regard to the story that is coming up.
By this I mean all of my paintings are metaphysical, meaning I do NOT intend subject matter.
I let the subject matter reveal itself as the painting progresses. 
For a little fun try to see what I see in the painting by the title.

After a Three Martini Lunch Things Look Pretty Good at The Office    3 Feet by 4 Feet
If you look at the bottom center of the painting you will see an executive sitting in their office chair and holding up a martini they are just finishing, as they look around the office and see it through the pleasant haze of alcohol.
The background of this painting is a gorgeous dove gray which makes the black on the painting pop off of the canvas.
