I arrived in Maine from Massachusetts right before the onset of the Covid epidemic. As I've walked the land and watched the wind churn the ocean and birds sore on its currents, this sublime place has entered into my imagery.

The philosophy of finding one's way by spending time in nature has been spoken of and written about for thousands of years. These works present imaginary landscapes  where plants stand-in for people and the compositions reveal my reactions to ills of society.

Tide Poems

These abstractions of tide plains and seabirds began shortly after I arrived in Maine. As I've seen the decline in the numbers of birds, my attention is drawn to them even more.

Sea Change

With all the hardship and strife in the world, I can't help but imagine brighter better places. These imaginary worlds aside worlds, address the need to break free from the divisiveness and anger, to shift paradigms.

These works are symbolic interpretations of memories and stories. Inspired by my father's novel and other writings and the way in which he lived his life, I developed this series to emulate his quiet and mysterious disposition and honor the times we spent together in nature.

Thoughts about other worlds, spiritual places, and dreams of gateways to Utopia are the genesis for these paintings. Some were created after Hurricane Maria and its destruction of the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. It's a lush special place where horses roam free and graze with birds on their backs in lands still scared with toxic waste from when the USA had a military installation.
