GEOTHERMAL ENERGY SALT-DOME SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This painting won a competition for a public art. It is going to be framed and fixed up and will hang in the new STEM building in Northeast San Antonio. My fascination with the geothermal energy possibilities of salt domes comes from my brother Russ's work on this technology. Russell has left the stage but maybe some engineer or curious person will be inspired by this painting and solve the challenges in utilizing this gift from the earth.

REWORKING, RESURRECTING AND RENOVATING A PAINTING

This is a painting of that moment when a person graduates to the next plane of existance. It just didn't jive. Just didn't dance. Just didn't tell it. Just didn't! Then! I see at last. Reduce. Edit. That's the ticket. It Worked!!! Here's the resolved image.

BEES OF UKRAINE

This is a re-paint of an old painting. An old, rather dreary self portrait that was just to experiment with. It is painted on a board which I don't think is exactly square. Ah-ha Malevich's out-of-
square white square !! But it is a heart felt homage to courage. Amazing courage. Of bees and those people in Ukraine.

UKRAINE'S SUNFLOWERS AND BLUESKY

The courage of the Ukrainians resisting that brutal dictator doesn't make sense. What a surprise.Ubiquitous sunflowers have become a stirring symbol of freedom.

MONARCH BUTTERFLIES ARE ESSENTIAL

I really like to use these creatures in their beauty to speak to that force of Life thing that is all over the place. It is monarch butterfly season soon. I saw it once! What a gift!
I call this one CRYSTAL CLOUD. It is about 12" x 12".
This is called DON'T SHOOT THE BUTTERFLIES. It is on wood about 12" x 24".
Thhis is named UKRAINE DANCE in honor of my friends and relatives in Ukraine being attacked by a powerful mad man. This is on wood, 8" x 12".

FUNNY FISH

This painting is probably finished. It has been a tour of coral reefs plus imagination. Here is some of the progression. I think I still want to work on the ribbon of life some more.
I took out that horizontal butterfly. It's better without that one.
