Sabbat or Dark Interpreter, De Quincy Dreams of Levana and Our Ladies of Sorrow


Sabbat or Dark Interpreter, De Quincy Dreams of Levana and Our Ladies of Sorrow Oil on wood, 48 inches by 48 inches, 2016 Since the Middle Ages, until comparatively recently, a conjecture of public opinion held the view that visits of witches and warlocks to the Sabbat were a physical experience.

In Times of Peril


In Times Of Peril She Would Call Up All Strange Orders Of Spirits Into Her Aura To Protect Herself From Evil Oil on wood, 48 inches by 24 inches, 2015, Buy the original oil painting from Saatchi Art The painting illustrates a technique utilized by some practitioners of the magical tradition to ward off what is perceived as, and known by, psychic attack.

Greek God of Sleep Hypnos


Greek God of Sleep Hypnos Oil on canvas, 16 inches by 20 inches, 2015.  SOLD. Inspired by a bronze statue from the British Museum London which I first encountered in the late 1960’s early 70’s.
