Oil on Canvas, 24″ X 30″

Bombarded from every direction
By clusters of new information,
I toil to filter facts from fiction
As they compete for my attention.

“Bottomless Pit”

Oil on Canvas, 30″ X 30″

Shopping for more
Unnecessary things.
Stuffing the mouth
With countless eats.
Consuming a stream of
Useless information.
Looking for triggers
Of intense pleasure.
Hoping to get more
Of dopamine hits.
Can we ever fill
A bottomless pit?


Oil on Canvas, 14″ X 18″


As a caterpillar may turn
Into a butterfly eventually,
One’s suffering potentially
Can be transformed.


Oil on Canvas, 24″ X 24″

You thought you were a god.
You’ve created many worlds.
But now you’re a slave
Of your own creations.


“Fire Dance”

Oil on Canvas, 22″ X 28″

The temperature’s rapidly rising
Emboldened by emotional waves.
The heart’s beating faster and faster
Engulfed by the dancing flames.



Oil on Canvas, 16″ X 20″


I peel off the masks
and toss them away.
But the new ones emerge
The very same day.


“The Essence Of Chaos”

Oil on Canvas, 18″ X 24″

Conflicting desires
Are pulling me apart,
Splitting me in two.
The essence of chaos.



Oil on Canvas, 20″ X 24″

The sound of her deep sigh
Infiltrates my defenseless mind,
Washes all over my being,
Stirs the forgotten feelings.
There is no escape
From her femininity.



Oil on Canvas, 40″ X 30″

Under the pretense of a noble cause
One man’s greed commanded his horde
To march with pride to the bordering nation,
To bombard and destroy without cessation,
To murder children, women and men,
To rob their homes and grab their land.

Oil on Canvas, 24″ X 20″

Everybody tweets.
Only a few chirp.


“Heavy Concepts”

Oil on Canvas, 16″ X 20″

High density abstractions
Like flakes of heavy snow
Descend on quite waters of
The mind to be absorbed.



Oil on Canvas, 24″ X 18″

Roaming these streets and avenues
Oblivious of my surroundings,
Chewing the mental substance,
Blowing the evanescent bubbles.


“Faces Of War”

Oil on Canvas, 14″ X 11″

“War! What is it good for?! Absolutely Nothing!”,

Quote from a song by Edwin Starr.


“Among The Shadows”

Oil on Canvas, 24″ X 18″

Touch the sun,
Go up in flames.
Then claim your place
Among the shadows.
