“I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night
Any place it goes is right
Goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here

Well, you don’t know what we can find
Why don’t you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride…”

– Steppenwolf

Hope •



This is a small watercolor inspired by an Emily Dickinson poem.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops – at all …

Running On Empty

Title: Running On Empty

( An abandoned gas station …)

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
I don’t know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
Look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too

Running on, running on empty
Running on, running blind
Running on, running into the sun
But I’m running behind

–  Jackson Browne –

A Hamadryad

Title: Hamadryad

Dryads, like all nymphs, were supernaturally long-lived and tied to their homes, but some were a step beyond most nymphs. These were the hamadryads who were an integral part of their trees, such that if the tree died, the hamadryad associated with it died as well. For these reasons, dryads and the Greek gods punished any mortals who harmed trees without first propitiating the tree-nymphs.

Sir Guardian •

Title: Sir Guardian

Native Americans associated the meaning of owl with wisdom, foresight, and keeper of sacred knowledge. Similarly, West African and Aboriginal Australian cultures viewed the owl as a messenger of secrets, kin to sorcerers, as well as companions to seers, mystics and medicine people. During medieval times it was fabled that owls were actually priestesses (witches) and wizards in disguise. My owl is the keeper of his forest from harm.
