see full description & specifications

Pelicans are such beautiful creatures in some ways while being so strange looking up close.  They feel like living dinosaurs, a short evolutionary leap from the ancient tpterodactyl.  In the mornings they glide through the air, low on the waves riding the updrafts from the offshore winds.  Sometimes when the swells are lined up right, they will fly in groups of up to forty or fifty, just cruising along for miles as the waves come in from the sea.  They fly in such an organized manner and look so serious, they feel to me like they are the original air force.  

The Life series inspired by life on this planet and my increased awareness of it in recent years.  The series began with an almost daily (at times) pilgrimage to the sea by way of surfing I began to really connect deeply with the ocean and her living inhabitants.  I began thinking in terms of the natural world with swells, tides and winds and had close encounters with dolphins and all kinds of sea birds.  I was thinking, dreaming and reading about the ocean.  That how I became aware of the state of the ocean, its life, and the affect that humanity is having upon it.  I learned that our oceans, and their flora and fauna are facing hard times.  Sea life cannot defend itself against commercial fishing, increases in global ocean temperatures, multitudes of plastics and rising toxicity levels. 

From there it has expanded to include all life on this planet.  We're all connected.  We will all share the same fate in terms of how our mother earth fares.  These paintings are a statement of awareness, respect, love, sadness and hope.
