This Oil Painting Original, 18“ x 24“, oil and cold wax on canvas, was inspired by...

Inside water, a waterwheel turns,

A star circulates with the moon.

We live in the night ocean wondering,

What are those lights?

  -Rumi 2305W OCW

my new "Mother Earth" Series. It literally begins with dipping into the Waters of the earth and, further, seeing other elements of this earth as our Great Mother, bearing us upwards to where we now are in evolution.


In progress now, I began with a series of water paintings,


I've been exploring a technique new to me but that's been around for hundreds of years - cold wax. I have always loved the icons of the Middle East and the Orthodox churches in particular, and wanted to introduce more of the rich and broken textures that appear in those icons after a few hundred years of wear and weathering. I am delighted to say I am achieving the results I want, as in this painting, larger than my earlier ones.

This painting is about luxuriating in the beauty of nature and art as they come together in a richly textured surface. The subject matter is mystical and romantic, which appeals to me in many ways. Painting abstractly leaves much to you, the viewer to interpret for yourself with all your own personal nuances and meanings.

This oil paintings is a unique art work on canvas. It comes with its own Certificate of Authentication.

I’m happy to send more photos and details upon request.
