Venus

Her heart is flaming, as befitting the Goddess of Love.  But this Goddess is less cherub and more stealth, embodying the “charm and seduction of the divine” (R. Schilling). She is spotlighted by the moon, appropriately, given her neolithic heritage and original myth.

STORM: Superhero Reimagined

Storm is a full 48″ x 60″, bursting out of the frame in shades of violet, fuschia, orchid and sapphire blue.  The texture on this piece is superb, giving it depth and movement.  Storm is made of a collage of discs, each with its own image or pattern, so she’s just as fascinating to view up close as from afar.

Glazed Pottery Series

 

For some time, I’ve wanted to do a series of paintings based on beautiful glazed pottery.  This is the first.  The colors are endless, and deep, ranging from jade to ocean to umber.  Texture is divine, and as always there is a gloss finish that brings it all together and creates the most stunning complexity of color.

Tithonus, the Goddess of Insects

Another in the Super Villain/Goddess series, this beauty is tough as nails in her protective love of fragile creatures. The colors are brilliant crimson and orchid, with a multitude of bright insect patterns and shapes.  This dynamic piece is very striking, about 2.5 feet tall and 6 feet wide.  A stunning piece for a hallway or over the  fireplace.

Circus

This is reminiscent of a faded, battered circus banner, featuring the fearsome tiger. The colors are deep and glowing, proving the ferocity of the tiger that can’t be forgotten.circus1

Sirena

mermaidwhole

Sirena is huge, 60W x 48H, in cool ocean greens and blues, a collage of individual discs with scenes and patterns.  Her fanciful sea friends look real but they also are collages (see close ups below).  A glimmer of gold bubbles and flecks of silver dance under the acrylic resin coat.mermaid3mermaid1mermaid2mermaid4
