Canopy Dweller

The newest circle painting, a Poison Dark frog flying through the philodendron canopy. 34” diameter. Small and perfect the frog seems to defy camouflage rules but I guess when your body is toxic to others, that’s quit enough.


The Curvature of Imperfection

Geometrics again take the front line. Spring green and sky blue surround the vesicular form of the three fold goddess. A  great feeling to be playing with beads and color once more. The intense color palate excites me.

The mix of cut beads that sparkle adds a secondary visual dimension.  My hiatus into painting for the past 10 months has enlivened the color field I think. This sphere is 8” diameter. The icosahedron form is comprised of 20 equilateral triangles making a form with gentle peaks at the apex of each corner. More and more honey keeps pouring forth. My cup runneth over.

Redback Croaker

The Redback Croaker is 19” diameter. She is a shy creature,  living quietly under the philodendron’s umbrella. Waiting , watching,  patiently motionless until the movement of her favorite dietary morsel catches her always observant eye. Yum.
