Night Flowers, 2017, ink on paper, 10″ x 8″

Fish Scale was done as a personal piece, Night Flowers was a commission. Fish Scale may be an alien, walking a lonely shore on his first day on earth, or maybe he’s a creature that coalesced out of the landscape. Night Flowers stands before her mist shrouded woods. Is she barring entry, or is she here to guide you to a magic realm? I’ll let you come up with your own answers to these questions.

Nocturnalogic Redux

nocturnalogicLast summer I spent some time photographing things in my garden with a macro lens. Some of the pictures were put on a blog called Nocturnalogic, which I have since discontinued. I have salvaged the images and added them to a gallery as part of this blog. Simply mouse over “Gallery” in the header and then click on “Nocturnalogic” when it appears. Nature is integral to my work and taking these images are a way of looking closer. I hope you like them.

On another note, I have been compressing my web presence somewhat in recent days. Like untended plants, these blogs, sites, and social media platforms can grow leggy and pale. My Etsy site was closed as part of this process and it is my intent to use Big Cartel as my sole online shop. At the moment you can find prints, but I’ll be gradually introducing some selected originals and maybe even a book or two.
