Cave Boy

This is one of my personal favorites and unfortunately, it’s very hard for me to photograph the beauty and detail in it, mostly because it’s so large and even the best lighting never captures all the colors properly. Close up you can see very intricate details like fur and cave art on the walls, and I even hid the famous and disturbing Birdman of Lascaux somewhere in there.

This was painted with many layers of watered down acrylics on hard wood panel.

3 Canvases. Acrylic landscape paintings of Mt Washington Village. My parents live up the mountain the entire winter season so they wanted me to paint this for their cabin. It was my first time painting houses, and although it took forever, I found that I don’t mind painting houses so I may do some more landscape scenes with architecture in the future.

This is a tribute acrylic painting based on Jonny Armstrong’s wildlife photography.

Every once in awhile I come across these amazing photographers who capture these phenomenal scenes, so I contact them and ask them if I can turn their photograph into art.

This is Jonny Armstrong’s original photograph and his website here.

Dream Realm – Abstract Field

cat

After dissecting this art, I realized I was the strange blob in the center of the painting, my arms flailing like I was afraid. Above me, cannon balls, explosions, spiritual vehicles and a lot of intense unearthly activity is going on. I need to get to the other side where my cat Merlin is contently waiting, but that dark grass is scary and seems to be preventing me. I have two other options: climb onto the cannon ball, climb up the dead tree and hope it falls over to create a bridge, but both of those options are dangerous. Merlin says, “It’s okay, all you have to do is walk straight ahead through the grass, there is nothing to worry about.” I realize, there is no need to search for alternative routes, I just have to be brave and walk straight through the tall grass, so I painted myself a flashlight to light the way and hopefully to ease my fears of moving forward. Once I reach him, Merlin and I will unite, we will step into the vortex where we can go to the sun.
