Turbulence
16 x 20

This was an experiment in depth perception using colors and texturing.  If you look closely at the blue area, you will see that it is broken up in a texture known as "craquelure".   An unexpected outcome of this work is what appears to be the profile of a man's face at center left, giving the work the appearance of being turbulent thoughts exploding into the cosmos.

Regret

Originally this was an experiment in depth perception using shading and a single hue.  Many people remark that it reminds them of rose petals.  However, this similarity was unintentional.
Woman Contemplating
30 x 40

Originally, this work began with my tinkering with a photo of my girlfriend.  I had no end result in mind.  Today, I find this work increasingly fascinating, because it seems that many latent emotions emerged during its creation.  The swirling red and yellow give it a feeling of a raging fire trying to burn away a resilient heart.  It could be interpreted as a woman finding  refuge in her own, strong heart against the over-powering and self-destructive forces of emotion, love, passion, or whatever forces are trying to overwhelm here.  This seems now more than a simple image.  It is the focal point of a woman's intense, internal struggle.
Ice Age
24 x 36

I named this "Ice Age" because it gives me the same feelings I experience when I view some artist's rendering of life during the Ice Age.  In it, I seem to feel  humanity's struggle against the primal elements of snow, cold, mud, sharp fragments of ice, and glaciers.  Perhaps this reminds me of a distant past life.  Interestingly the browns could also be taken for animal skins, which during the Ice Age, which have probably been seen as symbols of comfort: clothing and bedding.
