There are several places online where you can see my artwork, besides this blog: First my website, then for a more comprehensive catalog, my flickr page.  I am offering smaller, more affordable works, such as “Red” pictured above, through my Etsy store.

Check out all the great work and don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, or info about pricing or availability.

New Etsy listings are up tonight!

I’ve added several pieces to my “Figureworks” collection in my Etsy store: works featuring the human form.

First up is an interesting painting I created mid-2010 (it seems like yesterday) titled “Lovesick Android.” Lovesick Android was composed with acrylic paint on wood panel.  The gold and silver acrylic paints really stand out in an interesting way from the deep purple ground.  This unusual metallic look inspired the Android part of the title; as for “lovesick,” it just seemed to fit his overall demeanor.

Red” is a watercolor I created a few years ago.  I’ve been meaning to get this into the Etsy store for quite some time.

Featured painting of the week: Skandha 3 (Torso 3)

This week’s featured painting is Skandha 3 (Torso 3), a figurative piece I created late in 2013.  I mentioned my figurative work earlier in the week in my post about new Etsy listings.  This week’s featured oil painting is among the larger figurative works I’ve done and this one explores an interesting geometric expression of the figure, almost a kind of mapping or ‘landscaping’ of the human form.  The title draws on Sanskrit Buddhist technical terminology.  At root the word “skandha” means “trunk” as in a tree-trunk. In Buddhist philosophy it refers to the constituent parts of human consciousness, of which physical form is an important part.

The painting is 24 inches square (about 60 cm square).  I’m offering it for direct sale through my square store.  If you’re interested in more figurative work, please visit my Etsy store.  There’s more coming along this year, so stayed tuned for upcoming news or contact me with any questions.
