the beginning and the end.  (Rachel Carson 1951)

I recently finished another painting that continues the series of works that focus on natural elements.  Inspired by images of underwater scenes, rocks and natural formations, I am also experiencing a raised consciousness of the fragility of our oceans and the environmental perils (oil rig disasters, melting ice caps, huge floating garbage patches) facing them.  These new paintings are an expression of those sentiments.

Here is one of those paintings which is titled “Grotto”, acrylic on canvas, 24″ x 30″ in a float frame, priced at $ 500.00.  It is currently in an exhibit, NEW WORKS, at the Coastal Arts League Gallery in Half Moon Bay, through October 3rd.
