Abyssal Passage
16" x 20". Powdered Graphite. 2018. 
This is my first attempt using powdered graphite.  I was inspired by Allen Williams technique of mixing it with water and then erasing into it.

Dream Catcher
9.75" X 16", Pencil on Illustration Board, 2018
I was talking to a friend about her fear of making art, because of some terrible criticism by an art teacher when she was a kid, and I suggested she just close her eyes and scribble, and then find stuff in there to draw from, and not worry about any judgement, she could just throw it away, but just enjoy the process.  Then I realized I hadn't done that for awhile, so I started this drawing with big cartoon eyes.
Trapezoidal Resonance
12" X 12". 2018. Oil on Canvas
"Close your eyes and let the mind expand. Let no fear of death or darkness arrest its course. Allow the mind to merge with mind. Let it flow out upon the great curve of consciousness. Let it soar on the wings of the great bird of duration, up to the very circle of eternity." -Hermes Trismegistus
RABBITS (from Portland, Or.)… printed up this 3 color shirt, with a drawing I did for them (below).  It is available at shows if they ever play in your vicinity.
