About The Artwork

"The Eye of Day", 2014 - acrylic on gallery-wrap canvas (standard depth of .75 inches). The title comes from "Hassan's Serenade" in James Elroy Flecker's 1922 play "The Story of Hassan of Baghdad and How he Came to Make the Golden Journey to Samarkand": "How splendid in the morning glows the lily; with what grace he throws His supplication to the rose: do roses nod the head, Yasmin? ... The morning light is clear and cold; I dare not in that light behold A whiter light, a deeper gold, a glory too far shed, Yasmin. But when the deep red eye of day is level with the lone highway, And some to Mecca turn to pray, and I toward thy bed, Yasmin, Or when the wind beneath the moon is drifting like a soul aswoon, And harping planets talk love's tune with milky wings outspread, Yasmin, Shower down thy love, O burning bright! for one night or the other night Will come the Gardener in white, and gather'd flower are dead, Yasmin!" This painting is not framed, but it is ready to hang; signed and dated on front and back, with the title on the back.

Born in Montgomery, Alabama, and raised in the rural Appalachian foothills of the northeastern part of the state, my childhood was surrounded by the natural world, the rigid social and cultural traditions of the deep South, the distant rumblings of 1960's social changes, and the panoramas of human existence revealed to me through reading, music and art. Most of my adult life has been spent working as a graphic designer in Birmingham, South Florida, and Dallas -- primarily in the television industry -- where I was immersed yet another hybrid universe, a fun-house world of ego, transitory celebrity, and social manipulation. These days I live and work in a cabin on the edge of the Ozark National Forest in northwest Arkansas, decompressing.
