This is a recent series of digital paintings, titled Dwellings. These works represent the dream life and its connections with our inner selves and our waking life. There is not a lot of intentional symbolism in the paintings, but as they developed, symbolism seemed apparent to me. Perhaps it will be meaningful to you, or maybe you will just enjoy the images for themselves apart from any analysis. My paintings evolve in a way I try not to predict or direct too much beyond making them aesthetically pleasing, smooth, and clear to my eye. In the Dwellings series I used many of the same textures, shapes, and motifs in different ways within each painting, and in common with each other.
