Ancestors, hope, ancient, suffering
The second in a series which moved me greatly. All painted Autumn to winter 2019, all in rich oranges, blacks and golds, they feel connective to me to ancestral, indigenous, aboriginal spirits. In this piece I represented a form of hieroglyphic telepathy to humanity from the Spirit.


Journey home friends struggle forward alone hidden
Our best friends, in spirit and memory, please help us and guide us, as we struggle forward, often hurt and alone.


Fire destruction climate change disaster after end beginning
I do not know how I contributed - as many do not - to this colossal nightmare of climate change disaster hitting our world. I do sense that fire will continue to destroy many, and as I am a Fire sign, a Fire birth, I am grieved, very grieved.


Earth, digestion, transformation, process, food
An acrylic painting from January 2021, portraying life at different fractal levels - Maryland, The east coast, the USA, as a digestive process of the greater Universe with elemental animal forces, and an Earthly digestive tract, processing what we humans are doing to the planet. Everybody is digesting or trying to digest something, good and bad.
