When all the consciousness is poured into us, and thoughts slowly settle, the imagery becomes crystal clear for a fleeting moment but what this all means remain nebulous and elusive. Will you have a cup of tea with me?

Mask I 2002, in acrylic, 3' x 4'.
I have a friend who is a ceramicist in San Diego. He created a wonderful series of ceramic masks, which inspired me to paint this one. This work was first conceived as a sketch on a PDA. Once painted, it turned out a lot more organized than I intended it to be. The red and black hues to the background were added when the initial putty colored background just did not cut it.
