"Galal" detail. A redemptive gesture in a world of waste.
ArtPrize piece coming along.
"Galal" means "to roll" or "roll away" in Hebrew. More on that soon.

These are pieces my brother Mike (in Denver) still hangs in his home. It's a rather surreal experience to see them again. Almost forgot about them, to be honest.
So good to see them again and remember.
This painting is a piece based on my reflections uon Pentecost. So many words are spent on subjects like these...this visual window is an opportunity to meaningfully reflect.
"And, what is more, in Christianity God appears to [humanity] right in the midst of worldly reality. The centre of this act of encounter must, therefore lie where the profane human senses, making possible the act of faith, become 'spiritual', and where faith becomes 'sensory' in order to be human."
- Hans Urs Von Balthasar
Visited the farm that my dad has run for our family for many years now. My boys and I enjoyed walking parts of it, and have been reminded of our roots. I've not been a farmer by any stretch, but in the coming months my "art" will include some work at this place. Here are some shots of our day.
Glad to share artwork in my friend's homes. Here is "Lake Effect" in a perfect spot.
P.S. it's still for sale, just on "consignment."
"I've learned to understand human words over the years, but understanding human speech is not the same as understanding humans."

Finished this large sculpture. It's 28 feet long and 8 feet wide!
Loved doing it, and am even more aware of the reality of hard work when it comes to visual art. That's why it's called art"work!"
