Winter Is Coming In All Kinds Of Ways

The thought of winter sends a chill through my bones. This new winter may settle permanently in my heart.

The mythology of the river is unsettling in its strength. It is calling me back.

The Secret Life Of Plants II

It is a world alien to us yet it sustains us. Mysterious always. I try to listen in.

Blades In The Grass

Every blade of grass knew I had killed those rats. The yard knew everything.

Red Dot

I love that in this whole composition, I only look at this one red dot. It all proceeds from there.

Mango is a Sun Conure, not the easiest parrot to deal with. Every once and a while I would like to feed her to the Crocodiles.

Here she is sitting on a flower and looking into the sunlight thinking up new ways to torture me.

Solitude And Healing

My hope for Josh is for rapid recovery, healing of mind, body, and spirit.  May doors open to a new and fruitful life.

Desert Fire

For Josh. 
I live in the desert and sometimes it is ferocious. Afganistan in particular is unforgiving. This is how I think it must feel.

There Are Different Kinds Of Desert Heat

For Josh.
 Survival in the desert is an art. All creatures feel it's unrelenting extremes.

For Josh.
Only hope and love can make a difference. Josh, we are praying for you.

What Can I Ever Say?

Today a young marine was badly injured in Afganistan.
There is no way to ever express a certain kind of grief and pain. The feeling is just too strong.

 This series is dedicated to Josh Langston White and his family.

That feeling when there is nothing you can do or say to change anything.

Reptiles have a certain intense mentality.  We have a "reptile" brain too in with the other parts. I wonder what exactly we have in common with them.

 I will be back with more Crocodiles soon. These are large drawings and take more than a day to finish.

White Croc Waiting

The "Croc" is my first large drawing in a while. One of a short series I hope. It is on 140lb Arches watercolor paper and measures 5'x 4'. It seems there is danger in the water. Maybe a reptilian inhabited land.
