Balance Is A Thin Line

This new one is based on a couple of masks from Indonesia.  I was really taken with the culture there when I went a few years ago. Everyone there believes that art should be a part of daily life and is essential for living in balance. That is what I was trying to convey with this piece, balance.  The checkered patterns represent good and evil in their culture and you find the pattern everywhere as a reminder for them to live their lives with a purposeful balance.

11"x14" oil on panel

This little trompe l'oeil I did was selected to be in the annual spring show at the ACADEMY. I'm really excited because there was A LOT of really good work submitted and a lot of people will be seeing it. I'm glad my hard work is starting to pay off.


The One That Got Away (top) Sf Trawler (bottom)

These were both a couple of experimental pieces I did as far as landscape and composition go. I generally like to steer clear of the traditional landscape and I'm pretty happy with how both of these turned out. They are both worked from photos.
