Paintings

I delight in opposites. As an oil painter and a digital artist I've spent my time between my beloved Vermont forests and global cities what I find between the boundaries—the quiet unnoticed—that which in our frantic mediated lives we rush by failing to notice truth reflected. 

Below is a portfolio of the oil paintings I've completed since spring 2010. To get the best view of each painting in greater detail, click on an image of a painting. This will also give you access to a horizontal scrolling list against black. My Flicker site contains a more complete catalog of my paintings and photography. The titles for many of the paintings come from poetry or songs that inspired me. The blog contains the literature referenced and their authors.
