Light Thru Spiritual Horizons

Tranquility-#2 Medium Web view
Somehow the small cross sections in this series, seemed to enclose vast tracts of sky and earth. Phosphorescent layers of blue and aqua provide contrast to the clear layers and provide an inner light. A panorama of clouds float over desert landscapes. The smell of creosote, a natural desert plant in imbued in the wood a former railroad tie, perhaps used in the gold or copper mines of Arizona. Its rough worn surface is a perfect metaphor for the ageless qualities I feel in the desert southwest.

My studio is both for the creation of my work and a sanctuary where I perform the sacred rite of creating art. My hope is that my pieces evoke a sacrosanct and meditative mood.  Prayer and meditation provides you the portal to the spirit of God Himself.

Dreams of Tranquilty 2

“Dreams and Visions of Tranquility”

Wood-Resin-Steel-Light

Psalm 8 

I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous,
    your handmade sky-jewelry,
Moon and stars mounted in their settings.
    Then I look at my micro-self and wonder,
Why do you bother with us?
    Why take a second look our way? Psalm 8

Let me dwell in a land of tranquility seeking your dream for my life.

Stargazing and other musings.

Spiritual Horizons series

Have you ever been in the wilderness at the ocean, mountains or desert?  I spent time this summer experiencing the vastness of the lands and skies of  Taos, Santa Fe, Sedona and our Sonoran desert.

“StarGazer” is a piece that is rich in symbolism and the theme of the renewal cycles of earth and the interaction of the basic elements; Air-Water-Earth & Light in depicting the vastness of the heavenly bodies.

Mixed Media work Wood-Resin-Steel & Light. Created while listening to Lida Husak, Hillsong, Bad Suns, The High Violets

Spiritual Thought

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him? Psalm 8:3

Most of these new pieces are are inspired by this past summer visits to Taos, Santa Fe and Sedona.  Read about the works on Spiritual Horizon page. This is a very limited edition so email me and I will reserve a piece. Shipping is free, and included with each piece is a very powerful UV battery operated light. 2-5 minutes with the light will recharge the phosphorescent powders which creates the internal luminescent qualities.

A Pool That Heals


Bench Horizontal

I have to confess; I fantasized about this bench. The power to #heal would have great value and I coveted a notion that those that sat on this bench would have a supernatural healing of some sort. At the same time remembered the experience of healing that I have had in my own life. How forgiveness healed anger and how prayer has been the key to healing. Other #spiritual musings included the thoughts and notions of altars and sacred spaces and artifacts. Milagros come to mind, religious folk charms that are traditionally used for healing purposes and as votive offerings in Mexico.

From this photo perspective, I am reminded of the coves along the coastline of Prince Wales Island in Alaska. I see the eye of a whale in the piece, or some deep water fish possessing bioluminescence ability. Additional photographs depict other images, but I do continue to focus on the notion of healing and the thought “Be still and know that I am God”.  Nature has a way of healing and connecting you to the Divine.
