Things that Grow in the Dark
After experiencing the darkness of the cave in Carlsbad Caverns, perceptions start to change. Strange shapes peak out of the darkness, and thoughts become full of color. Curiosity is at its peak, what other things lie beneath the Earth? What grows in places our eyes cannot see?

Green Flowers Painting

This groovy green flowers painting came out of a dream. During feverish nights over a long illness, my dreams were filled with surreal blue-green seascapes and twisted orange banners waving in the wind. Beatles songs played softly in the background. Surreal flowers grew out of the fertile ground.

This green flowers painting would look groovy on any wall.

greenflowers-progressAfter recovering from several weeks of being ill, I wanted nothing more than to get out of the house. Painting supplies accompanied me to the park on Spring afternoons. I spent time listening to Beatles songs, enjoying a soothing sun and warm breeze. Peaceful surroundings provided the perfect setting for reflection and working on the green flowers painting.
