 “Nature's creative power is far beyond man's instinct of destruction.”
   ― Jules Verne, Twenty thousand leagues under the sea

This series of paintings and prints is a celebration of nature. Out into the forest, into the seas, into the fields and the clouds... we look into the creation and see something far more awesome, powerful, and dangerous looking back at us. We see nature in all her glory. The creator, the destroyer, the bringer of life and death, and having seen into her eyes we see ourselves in a different light. Through our powerlessness we find freedom. 

Or we simply find a beautiful summers afternoon with a cool breeze...

Here are my paintings from Doorways into the unknown...

1. The Hobbit Hole 

This painting is every bit the joy of a warm summers day with a cool breeze. Painting this piece made my heart fill with joy! Today you can either buy the original or a limited edition kickstarter print!  

 2. Natures Seaside Doorway 

This piece is all about the grandeur of the ocean... I am tempted to stand on the oceans edge and stare into it, mesmerized by how massive and powerful it is, and how small I am. Then I am brought to my senses by the splash of sea spray on my face and the smell of salt in the air. Today you can either buy the original or a limited edition kickstarter print! 

3. The Torii

This painting is full of movement! The rolling wheat fields that house the Torii contrast to its sturdy frame and the immovable stones over which it is built. This is a place I would sit and reflect on the dualities of life.  Today you can either buy the original or a limited edition kickstarter print!

 4. The wind gates

This painting is all about the grandeur of the skies! Clouds that are bigger than mountains and float in the skies are a crazy everyday experience that we take for granted. Do you sit and consider how amazing they are? You might feel the wind, and see the effects of the breeze, but the majesty of the skies is unknown to us. Today you can either buy the original or a limited edition kickstarter print!
