Celebration of Wishes

Celebration of Wishes 24x30

Celebration of Wishes 24×30 Abstract Oil Painting

Celebration of Wishes was inspired by the abundance of light and color in early spring. I was especially influenced by The poem “A Light Exists In Spring” by Emily Dickinson.

A light exists in spring
Not present on the year
At any other period.
When March is scarcely here

A color stands abroad
On solitary hills
That science cannot overtake,
But human nature feels.

I wanted to capture the same emotion as the poem and portray the ephemeral joy and transitory nature of early spring.

Splendor of Longing

Splendor of Longing 40×40 Abstract Oil Painting

Splendor of Longing was inspired by the poem “A Prayer In Spring” by Robert Frost:

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

This poem is so powerful that I wanted to capture that emotion and portray the feeling of the allure and impermanence of spring.

Carnival of Creation 30×48 Abstract Oil Painting

The poem “The Question” by Percy Bysshe Shelley inspired me to create Carnival of Creation. I was especially inspired by this phrase:

I dreamed that, as I wandered by the way,
Bare Winter suddenly was changed to Spring

I wanted to capture the raw emotion of the poem and portray the feeling of the awakening of spring. I hope that my painting inspires someone as much as the poem inspired me.

Ask Mr. Owl, He’ll Know

Ask Mr. Owl He'll Know 9x12

Ask Mr. Owl, He’ll Know 9×12 Abstract Oil Painting

In many ancient beliefs, the owl symbolizes change and wisdom. Some Native American tribes believe that the owl is a sacred messenger, and seeing an owl is a sign of great changes to come.

If you look closely at this painting, you can also see the number 15 in the background. In numerology, the number one symbolizes the beginning, and the number five symbolizes change and growth.

Circles are a recurring theme in my work, because they symbolize the cycles in life. This painting also features bright, optimistic colors to celebrate the blossoming possibilities of the ever-changing future.

Welcome To The Future

Welcome To The Future 12x12

Welcome To The Future 12×12 Abstract Oil Painting

I finished painting “Welcome to the Future” on New Year’s Eve. It was inspired by the universal need to leave the past behind in order to find a brighter future.

If you want to keep moving forward and achieve something new in life, you have to leave your regrets behind. That means being strong enough to let go and embrace new experiences, instead of dwelling on the past.

If you look closely at this painting, you can see the year 2000 in the background. For many people, that year always represented the unknowable future.

Now that it’s in the past, it symbolizes a sort of eternal faith in what may come. This painting is about being unafraid to leap into a future we haven’t discovered yet.

Tomorrow Blooms 36×36 Abstract Oil Painting

Tomorrow Blooms is about the times in your life when you’re feeling down and out, yet part of you knows that change is on the horizon.

Even in the worst of times, if you look hard enough, there is always a glimpse of tomorrow.

That feeling of hope, that faith that you are heading into a better future, that’s my inspiration.

The circles in this painting represent continuation in our lives. Good or bad, nothing ever stays exactly the same. There’s always something new headed your way.

Every day of our lives, tomorrow is in bloom.
