Buy Original Painting from Saatchi Art I originally finished The Odyssey in 2008 but then reworked it in the fall of 2011 for my show “God Factory”. In the Odyssey one witnesses a move into human consciousness, a consciousness that is not present in the Iliad. The Odyssey shows man becoming accountable and introspective,  human traits not encountered in the Iliad. Philosophy Behind the Painting The Odyssey I believe is the greatest story ever told because it is  […]

Serpent Stone in Memory of Arthur Machen







Glain Nadredd Serpent Stone of Celtic Mythology Les Nadredds serpent Oil on canvas, 48 inches by 36 inches.  This picture is dedicated to Arthur Machen and his novel The White People.

Zeus Io, Io Tells Her Story Zeus Io.  Io was, in Greek mythology, a priestess of Hera in Argos. Seduced by Zeus, he changed her into a heifer to escape detection.

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 recent times this view has, by many, been transformed into a concept  that attendance at the Sabbat is induced by hallucinogenic substances, ingredients often absorbed through the skin from the well known “flying ointment”. See Sacred Mushroom and the Cross by John M. Allegro for an illustration of […]
