1. Death & The Deathless.  Original 24″ x 18″ dharmic oil painting on 1.5″-thick canvas.  No matter the philosophy, meditations or creed we accept to live/not live by, our only certainty to face is the duty to Death; thus, to converse candidly with it can only be of benefit to our brief, beating bodies.  Accepting this eventual passing – rot and all – of everything loved makes us as wise as a player who has the eyes of pearls, as agile as the golden fish in their oceanic universe, and as stedfast as muddy roots blossoming into lotuses above the murky surface.

     
  2. Camou.  Original 33” x 11.5” oil painting on 1/4”-thick hardboard. A thin coat of white acrylic and mineral spirit mixture was applied to the hardboard as a base. Each line of colored paint was added individually and a stencil of a youthful boy created the implied silhouette in the center of the painting. The stencil was kept on only until the completion of the painting’s colored lines.
