#throwbackthursday - his dual eye colors look intently above. The small #mowhawk on his oversized head... he screams curiosity.

just like a shock wave, a wave of paint moved quickly to create these two pieces. painted together, the work seamlessly looks like a wave of white crashed across a sea of greens and black.

solar eclipse - mixed media, 14x10
An #eclipse obscures, if only for a few minutes. Inspired by the beauty of a #solareclipse this #artwork shows the rays of light peering behind the temporary darkness. As I painted, I thought of a saying by #brahmagupta (an Indian mathematician and astronomer):
As the sun eclipses the stars by his brilliancy, so the man of knowledge will eclipse the fame of others in assemblies of the people if he proposes algebraic problems, and still more if he solves them.
