FIREWORKS

This is a painting that represents fireworks being shot off of barges off the Honolulu Coast….A fun project and colorful…just like July 4!

My paintings are now on display right outside of Sedona, AZ at “The Miner’s Pick Gallery” in Jerome at 123 Hill Street located at what once was the hospital and surgeon’s home.

FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN This was inspired by a storm I watched 8,000 ft. up in the mountains outside of Las Vegas where I once made my home. It was named after an old Grateful Dead song….it was truly an amazing experience….

CROWN OF CREATION

Another “subconscious painting that started with just splashes of color and became a sunrise which became an eye from the sea…I really had no idea what I was painting until it was finished and my brain percieved it as such….The timeless tides and waves of erosion…movements of life on terra firma…..

COSMIC DREAM CAT

This painting came from complete imersion into color without regard for what I was doing until most of the image came forth from the subconscious….much like a dream…..

CLIFF HANGING IN BIG SUR

Painted in 2012…This was literally “on the edge” looking down…..one of my favorite perspectives of Big Sur.

Cabo San Lucas Arch

Painted in 2013. The infamous Arch at Love Beach in Cabo San Lucas, MX. A hurricane in the nineties wiped away this access to the back of the arch from Love Beach and is only accessible by boat now. There was a well-explored cave to the left of it as well. Haven’t been back in many years…the land of tequila and timeshares…..

Black SandBLUE HAWAII

Here’s a way to warm up if you’re on the East Coast or Midwest. These were painted in 2012 and were some of the first attempts at digital art with my iPad. Hope they bring some warmth to your day!

Pheiffer Falls This is my favorite Big Sur painting….it’s source is a photograph I took in 1994 while trespassing on private land and getting out quickly. It is also known as Pheiffer Falls but Pheiffer Beach is located further north…this is the Julia Pheiffer State Park area. At one time there was a boardwalk that went down the side of the hill to the beach that has been destroyed from the fierce stormy winter weather.

Aloha Painted in 2013

I love painting sunsets and ocean. The long distance field of view is challenging and pushes me to learn different techniques each time. I am an untrained artist and have always enjoyed doing things for the first time…it is my strength and my nemesis at times….but that’s the Yin and Yang of life….to keep dancing between them is the only goal there is….nothing further….now to keep breathing and let it happen….stream of conciousness painting….

Musical Code Found in Da Vinci Painting

ROME (Nov. 9) – It’s a new Da Vinci code, but this time it could be for real. An Italian musician and computer technician claims to have uncovered musical notes encoded in Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Last Supper,” raising the possibility that the Renaissance genius might have left behind a somber composition to accompany the scene depicted in the 15th-century wall painting.
“It sounds like a requiem,” Giovanni Maria Pala said. “It’s like a soundtrack that emphasizes the passion of Jesus.”
Painted from 1494 to 1498 in Milan’s Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, the “Last Supper” vividly depicts a key moment in the Gospel narrative: Jesus’ last meal with the 12 Apostles before his arrest and crucifixion, and the shock of Christ’s followers as they learn that one of them is about to betray him.

More Musical Codes Found in Art

by Walter Web, EP  Rabbit’s Foot, Arizona

After some research I found that this is not the only instance of finding musical codes in art. Here are some other instances not publicized but just as important:

Artist, Benito Pastability, a sculptor, has found evidence of another musical piece based on Rodin’s “The Thinker.”   He has diagrammed a musical score from the various points of the sculpture and played them on a synthesizer.  “It sounds a lot like Boy George from Culture Club,” he commented, humming the tune “Where Did Our Love Go.”

In another related development Michelangelo’s extensive painting on the Sistine Chapel ceiling was analyzed and a computer programmer from Austria, Hans Zimmerfish, has come up with more hidden musical codes.  Zimmerfish explains that he spent 12 years toiling and has come up with a 30 second score that mimics exactly Edwin Starr’s “War, What Is It Good For?”  “The phrase, ‘absolutely nothin, say it again,’ can be heard over and over distinctly,” commented Zimmerfish.

The infamous “Noah’s Ark” painting by Edward Hicks has completely established a musical pattern by Alfred Aquatic of Auckland, New Zealand.  “It is without a doubt the most amazing of all the discoveries as even though the painting was finished in 1840’s if turned upside down and slightly angled to the right, shows a rudimentary musical scoring of James Cameron’s Titanic theme, “My Heart Will Go On,” but the more incredible discovery is that when it is tilted to the left produces “There’s Got To Be A Morning After” the theme to the original “Poseidon Adventure,” by Maureen McGovern.

In Bivalve, New Jersey a researcher has duplicated all the exact cuts for the points of the infamous “Hope Diamond” and using a custom computer program has uncovered another musical mystery.  It seems when David Diablo had spun the diamond simulation counterclockwise at exactly 33.3 RPM,  he recorded something that one can hear the as the words “I Bury Paul.”  His research ended when he mysteriously “got blisters on his fingers” and fell off a calliope to his death.

And lastly, Yuri Dickulous from an unknown village in Republic of Kazakhstan has discovered that “Whistler’s Mother,” that famous painting by James Whistler was encoded with what he describes as a melody that exactly duplicates the theme from the movie “Deliverance.”  Further research showed James had an explorer brother named Louis, an avid canoist.
