Emerge In Time

AA220908-Time

space-tAs the camel emerges from the window of time and inner-dimensionality is surrounding all of us, the light is pronounced. The camel changes and the fishes reshaping have all been part of a great big plan of the multi dimensional creator that cannot be created or destroyed, only changed to another form.

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosisspace-t

This is a collaboration work done between William Ballentine and myself, for a musician and yoga teacher Danny Paradise.

Numerous metamorphic metaphors are represented here: cocoons to butterflies, tadpoles to frogs, time itself as in an hour glass and phases of the moon.

Later in time, Mr. Paradise used the image for both his yoga promotions and music album cover.space-t

Elefantasia

AA130501-Elephant-fixspace-t
I have special endearment for the elephant

In this painting elephants were included everywhere. If you look carefully, you will see a large elephant that forms a greater part of the painting. From the mountains where the top of the head is, down to the creek where the trunk lies, you will see the elephant.

A caravan of elephants round the mountain and is led by a large elephant in the front with a girl on top. Her head is circled by seven stars and she holds the light of wisdom above her head.

There are two distinct sides to the painting: on the left, it is tropical and on the right is cold with snow.

Turtle Cave

TurtleCave

In my diving experiences I have observed many turtles. I could see them disappear into caves. One cave was above and below the water, we swam into the cave and observed corals, fish, turtles and birds flying in and out. It was an experience I will never forget.

The Great Whales

The-Great-Whales

Living near the ocean in Maui I was able to observe the great Whales as they come through the bay to spend the winter in Hawaii.

Occasionally we would go out on a whale watching cruise and one day we had the most extraordinary experience of whales ever. A family of Whales surfaced near the boat with all the babies. That sighting I attempted to convey in The Great Whales.

On the right, in the painting we see in the distance the west Maui Mountains. On the left, a small portion of Kaho’lawe Island can be seen.

space-tOceanic themes were strong in my work during the 1980’s and into the early 1990s, with my residency in Hawaii.

Now residing in northern California, I find wonderful coastlines, hidden coves and vistas and the amazing pelican birds.

I have been interested in painting them for years, but felt I needed to be around them in person to get a real feel for expressing their enduring quality.

With the advent of completing this work, I have made a significant contribution to not only the birds, but also a noteworthy coastal image that could even work if the pelicans “flew away”.

The theme of marine coastlines are endless and I’m sure that the 15 years away from the subject has regenerated fuel for newly inspired works such as “Misty Cove” in this genre.

Dream Of Pisces

Dream-of-Pisces

space-tThis painting is the “Piece de resistance” of all the 80’s marine artwork just before the era of the Atlantis series.

Again my love for the Dolphins, corals and various scuba diving experiences and sites came out in this work.

Mahi-mahi or dolphinfish on the far left, are preferred eating by the dolphins. A partial amount of my research came from the Honolulu aquarium for this work.

An unusual batfish can be seen near the right.

Dolphin Dream

Dolphin-Dream

 

 My first major endeavor of marine painting

This colorful scene depicts a family of dolphins frolicking in the waters south of the Hawaiian Islands at sunset.

Studying the sea, one can discern the Kaimana, or “diamonds” that form on the ocean from the sun being at a particular angle. Kaimana means “power of the ocean” in Hawaiian. It is also the Hawaiian transcription of the English word diamond.

On the left can be seen the two great mountains rising from the big Island of Hawaii, Mauna Kea, the highest mountain on earth if measured from it’s base underneath the Pacific ocean floor and Mauna loa, which contains the greatest volume or mass of any mountain in the world.

On the right is seen  the island of Maui with the dominant volcano of Haleakala rising from the clouds.

We are looking westward into the sunset toward the island of Oahu, which cannot be seen here and rarely in person.

Jewel of Amrita

AA122303-Amrita

JEWEL of AMRITA reveals the ancient Cambodian metropolis of Angkor Wat, recognized as the third largest monument in the world.

A race known as the Khymers inhabited this complex, originating a style of architecture unrivaled in grandeur and scale even by the Pharoahs of Egypt.

Within the magical and essential waterways of this civilization, Annenberg envisions its monumental ruins.

The Hindu and Buddhist foundation in the Khymer architecture present the promise of eternal prosperity and happiness.

The legendary god-mountain, the stepped pyramidal structures, symbolize divine origin and absolute power.

Four enormous faces crowning the foreground tower communicate in physical and spiritual substance the onmipotence of the earthly and heavenly ruler.

A prominent Hindu creation myth is dramatized in the array of these sculptural friezes. Supernatural forces join together, churning the world mountain (pyramid) in the primal void of “Sea of Milk” (ocean) producing the drink of immortality, a mythic ambrosia called “Amrita”.

The “Jewel of Amrita”; the light of life, abides within the god-mountain at the center of the universe. The guardians of earth, sea, and sky preserve and send this archetypal message to all who observe.
