"Dolphin Muse Dreaming"

This one I did in Darwin a few months ago...inspired by and dedicated to my friends the dolphins and whales who are the most sophisticated users of sound on the Earth, the beings who live most masterfully with water...and our fellow passengers-crew who are under severe attack by seismic testing, shipping noise, drift-nets, trawlers, lfas active sonar, and whaling.

Here the dolphins are singing into the dream-time continuum to request healing energies for Earth. 80cm x 1.2m

"Aotearoa Dream-scape"

This one was done for my friend Rachel...a kind of psychedelic view of New Zealand. It's the first time I ever tried to paint a kiwi! Approximately 70 by 90cm.

"Dream of the Star-maker"

This one was done in Darwin in 2004, approximately 1.7 by 1.9 meters. What's very interesting is that to begin, I laid the canvas flat and applied a uniform coat of the bluish-purple background. When I came back the next day, the water itself had moved and transformed to form all the whitish cloud-like patterns...all on its own! This was very freaky to me!

"Baiame-warrambool Continuum: micro"

This is the second of the first two murals I did in Australia, also approximately 1.5 by 3 meters.
