24x36 acrylic painting on canvas.Loosely based on H.P. Lovecraft's "Dreams in the Witch House". Those familiar with the story may not see any direct correlation, but that's ok. It's intended as a "what if..?" piece, left to the viewer's imagination. Was this pre-Walter Gilman, or post? He certainly was never blessed with THIS sort of dream.

18x24 acrylic painting in canvas boardThe Fox and the Cheese is based on an Aesop's Fable, The Fox and the Raven. A raven has a piece of cheese in her beak when a hungry fox passes by. He asks for a bite of the cheese, but the raven refuses. Then, slyly, he asks if she could sing for him instead because he tells her what a beautiful sing voice she has. Flattered, the raven croaks out a note, dropping the cheese. The fox snatches it up and runs off with it. Moral: Flattery will get you everywhere. In this painting, I upgraded the cheese to a gem and anthropomorphasized the fox.
24x36 acrylic painting on canvas.This painting is based on an Egyptian myth. The original myth goes that a lioness-headed goddess, Sekhmet, was sent by Ra to punish mankind for their sins. Sekhmet enjoyed this task a little too much and would have destroyed the world if not for Ra's clever intervention. He transformed all the blood that she spilled into wine. When she went to consume the blood, she got drunk and fell asleep, just short of total destruction.
