Fine Art


When I’m not writing, illustrating, or carving, I might be making art that is sometimes referred to as “fine art”, or art that stands for itself, without necessarily telling a story or being a picture of something obvious. When this is the case, an artist sometimes leaves it to each viewer to bring their own meaning to it.

I’ve experimented with combining a variety of subjects when I make this kind of art, but there are three in particular that I return to again and again. They are: prehistoric or “cave art”, images of galaxies, planetary nebulae, etc., and Japanese colored carp, or “koi”. I used to keep these kind of fish in a backyard pond.

Below are a few examples of this work in watercolor and gouche. What do you see in these pictures? What do you think they are about?






'Watcher'







'Pacific'
