"Escaping Darkness" Painted during the onset of COVID-19, as a reminder to the strength that Americans exhibit, Escaping Darkness is an imaginary visual of the light rising from the darkness. The 20 x 20 acrylic on cradled board uses strong blacks, and shaded gray as a contrast to the white escaping from behind it. This painting is in the my Cave Creek, Arizona studio and is also available online.

Just as the 405 that winds through Los Angeles and Orange County has stop and go and bumps along the road, so does life. The commuters are looking for that golden pathway that will take them home. How many people search for a golden road to happiness?
This large 30 x 48 has the textures that one might call bumps, and the golden roadway in the enter. Bold and dramatic Life's 405 creates a focal point wherever it is displayed whether vertically or horizontally. It is also currently in the Gallery at El Pedregal.
