Fuchsial Fire- The rising flames are of the color fuchsia, which I think are bold and beautiful. It also contains yellow and blue, colors of the fire. Fuchsia was introduced as a dye and was renamed magenta to celebrate the French victory,The Battle of Magenta, so fire is just part of war. There’s no such word as ” fuchsial,” but I loved the sound of it paired with fire.

Red Eye ˜ Centaur Art Galleries

Red Eye-in the right upper portion, you see prominent, rounded red figures. I saw them as glaring eyes. Some many relate to taking overnight flights, so it has real-world connotations which may be very applicable to certain people and their lifestyles. I like to consider everyday occurrences, so people can relate to the piece in some manner. Red Eye was the most obvious title to me.

Peace 2: Be The Face of Peace ˜ Centaur Art Galleries

 

“Peace 2”

Original Painting on Canvas

DIM: 49 3/4″ W * 36″ H

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peace 2: Be the face of peace. You told me to emphasize the face you see. It reminds us to choose peaceful solutions, if possible and that we as individuals can make a positive difference. I wanted this to be bold , statement piece, fiery, if you will. I’ve never seen this ubiquitous sign done in fire, so I wanted it to be different take on a familiar symbol known around the world.

Moonlight Mud Pie ˜ Centaur Art Galleries

 

 

“Moonlight Mud Pie”

Original Painting on Canvas

DIM: 49 5/8″ W * 37 3/8″ H

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Moonlight Mud Pie-to me, this painting contains dark, rich, earthly tones as well as a lighter component. I walked past the painting several times, and that name just kept hitting me. I liked the sound of it. I like the romance of moonlight and the kid in me just thought of making mud pies at night. It’s one of those strange names that had both meaning and a whimsical nature about it. It is meant to lift your spirits.
