‘On the Edge’

30″ x 30″

Acrylic on Canvas

The anime protagonist surveys the chasm, under the cherry blossoms, expressing this feeling of
being on top of the world and right up to the edge of life.

‘Arrival of the Cosplayers’

48″ x 24″

Acrylic on Canvas

There’s a fine line between anime and cosplay, especially when silhouettes are involved.  I like silhouettes.
They’re like reading a novel and using your imagination to visualize the characters.  These adventures have stopped to explore a bit.
Who knows what fun, mayhem, and epic excitement will ensue

‘Lanterns’

48″ x 24″

Acrylic on Masonite

There are times when things start looking dark, but big beautiful lanterns appear to light the way.
Be grateful for all the things that keep you going. Hope, inspiration, and benevolence in a seemingly uncaring world do exist.
Some of our friends are angels in disguise. And some people that we will never meet have
nourished or healed our souls beyond what they’ll ever know. Thanks to all.
