AA220920-Goddess

Ancient Greek Goddess whose devotees have gathered to witness the return of the Goddess

A ruined temple dedicated to an ancient Greek goddess, devotees are gathered to witness the return of the goddess herself.  She is happy to see her followers. They waited a long time for her reappearance since the destruction of the temple in a time before this, now in a distant time. She has reappeared to impart wisdom and beauty.

Dance of Life

AA220905-Dancespace-t

In dance of life we are wandering through many dance traditions to realizing our very own dance in life.

Starting in the front we only see a woman’s head, she is the Mystery dancer, continuing on the Las Vegas showgirl dancer, the Hawaiian and Balanese dancer on one of the trees of life, then we have the go-go dancer and the snake dancer from South America and then the Polish ballerina and lastly the ghost dancer.

In addition, megalithic sculptures from Egypt, then toward more western columns a soaring sunset and the top of the building actually becomes clouds and sky with a rolling ocean below.

A nice ocean swell on a beautiful beach and we are off into the sunset, part of my world is actually upside down underneath, Egypt!

The Last Session

AA160520-TheLastSessionspace-t
I was visiting a long time patron and great friend when the notion came up to do a painting based on Leonardo’s Last Supper, but using rockstar’s who have already made their way to the other side.

We thought it was a sensational idea and should be a lot of fun. This painting The Last Session is a result of that inspiration.

The first challenge was the selection of the 12 musicians. From a possible list of about 20 we finally agreed on these 11 men, plus Janis.

From the left to right: Otis Reading, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Bob Marley, Jerry Garcia, Frank Zappa, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison.

The criteria was simple. We felt they all needed to be important contributors in the Rock’n Roll field of music, as well as strong personalities easily identifiable and well known for what they did.

Through research and personal experience I tried to bring out what I know of them. As to the style, I wanted to follow closely Leonardo’s designs and gestures to maintain the integrity of the original as much as I could to approach it as a classical piece. To me it was quite important that the last session have all the qualities of an old masterpiece.

In my version Jesus is portrayed as the universal spirit, the Muse, if you will, inspiring the arts so if there is a message, in The Last Session it has to do with the way spirit moves through music as it does for all great artists, manifesting individually in the form of personality.

Invocation

AA160507-Invocationspace-t

Hawaiian lore – summoning of a deity for assistance

The Hawaiian woman is invoking ancient mystical powers. She, or someone she knows, needs healing, or a better situation, so the fires will cleanse and disperse the old energy and bring in the new.

Sophia

sophiaspace-t

I grew up with Sophia Loren and I was excited to do a metamorphic work of Italy with her image.

I picked the revered Amalfi coast to set the scene. Two fishermen arrive on a boat made of her lips and the sails are her nose.

My 22-year-old cat Daphne can be seen in the lower right.

Fun at the Lake

AA160505-FunAtTheLakespace-t

A commemoration of my five month visit to Peter and Signe Bale in Wisconsin. They inherited a large farm and encouraged me to paint there for the winter, which I did. Cloistered as the weather demanded, I accomplished painting many works.

When I left, I surprised them with this painting, a whimsical interpretation of them at one of the lakes in the summer with their dogs.
