This intimate moment between mother and child, all clad in white, is about tenderness, joy, protection, and most of all, love. I began working, and the profound beauty of this warm sunlit scene, with the grace-note counterpoint of cool dappled shadows, seemed to paint itself. I remember, as a young mother, placing little feet on the ground for those first tender steps. And now as an artist, I am privileged to paint them.

This painting was based on photo references I took at Heritage Park in Los Angeles with the California Art Club’s Paint Out in February 2019. I made a series of paintings of this model with the theme “Heritage Renewal.” When creating Enchanting, I tried to portray the image of the model in her gorgeous hand-made Victorian costume as a character from the literature I’ve read, and movies I’ve seen about that period of history.

The subject matter of this contemporary painting falls into the realm of cyberpunk and sci-fi culture. I collected and hid Easter eggs related to electronic and metal music, movies like Blade Runner, and classic anime OVAs.
I am a fan of retrowave, darkwave and vaporwave music, particularly bands like Perturbator; I see this piece as no less than a song. Although there is a continuation of a narrative, my main idea was to show the light and color boom, not merely what is happening between the characters of this painting.
This piece was done in memory of the late Rutger Hauer.

The Gang’s All Here
Oil on canvas, 18" x 24", $1800
I want my paintings to show those fleeting moments of time where light, color, form, movement and atmosphere come together in that one beautiful instant where we feel a little closer to nature and the magnificent beauty surrounding us.

Flower Stand (Study)
Oil on panel, 9" x 12", $4000
Chang’s subjects include biographical interiors, such as self-portraits, scenes of family, and classroom life in the style of the Old Masters. He is most known for his paintings of farm workers in Monterey County, where he grew up. These paintings are inspired by Francois Millet, who painted scenes of farm workers in 19th-century France, and the writings of John Steinbeck, who won the Nobel Prize in Literature for his novel “The Grapes of Wrath,” about the migrant workers during the Depression era. Chang’s paintings of the human condition are unidealized and unsentimental, yet they celebrate the human spirit.

The Fourth State of Matter

Brilliant sparks erupt from a snapping plasma cutter in John’s hands. Piercing channel iron for my small job, it looks like a toy and burns with the energy of stars.

Oftentimes it is difficult to describe your own artwork because of its personal nature, but as people, we share many similar experiences, and that is what makes the visual arts, literature and music part of such a timeless and universal language. I like my paintings to tell a story, to have a larger, more personal and emotional message. By trying to be honest with yourself in the process of creation, you explore your own psychological complexities. I like my viewer to tap into their own experiences and search for meaning in pictures, like poetry.

I enjoy visiting the Santa Barbara Zoo to sketch -- and they allow their Sulfur-Crested Cockatoo to spend time in the open air and sunshine. I wanted to capture that moment when the bird was in a state of intense concentration, working on perfecting the condition of each and every tail feather. When it was finally satisfied that every feather was in shape, it ended the grooming session with an exuberant shake-out and settled into a nap, looking clean, white and perfect.

I've had an interest in painting trees the last couple of years, as well as the Sonoma County hillsides, and my wife had recently taken a small interest in bird watching. I've always seen antlers as very tree-like in structure. Put it all together and you get this pleasant little scene.

Studies from Colombia 1
Watercolor on paper, 12" x 9", $1200
This is one of several bird studies painted while traveling through Colombia. I took many bird photos during the day and later at night I painted this and several other pages while memories were still fresh.

Deep in the San Bernardino Mountains there are waterfalls far from the roads, found only by long hikes that lead the determined explorer to isolated places of quiet and beauty. People who find these places know to keep them for themselves and a select few. Kept secret, the naturalist can experience a captured moment with nature, with only the sounds of singing birds and water crashing into the pool from many feet above.

Happy Time on the Beach

Oil on linen, 30" x 26", $6500
Coyote brush, a fluffy coastal sage that grows up and down the California coast, possesses some of the most beautiful grays at twilight. The sun has just passed behind the tall eucalyptus trees and the entire landscape becomes a neutral harmony. The quiet and calm interaction between the two figures merges with this landscape to create a symphony of mood. An intimate moment shared in this vast but serene setting conveys a sense of comfort. These are the moments that I cherish and aim to express.

The Travelers, an oil painting on canvas, depicts train passengers with their suitcases waiting to purchase tickets at ornate vintage windows in Grand Central Terminal in New York City. This contemporary scene captures a period of classical American history, and depicts the beautiful architecture which is bathed with interior artificial light. Whether it is a short trip home or an exciting vacation destination, these travelers’ journeys have begun in an impressive environment.

Beggar in Prauge

The beggars in Prague have a very unique supplicant posture I’ve seen nowhere else. The patterns in the street and sidewalk made this subject irresistible.

Crossing the Creek
Oil on canvas, 24" x 30", $6800
On this working ranch the horses live freely as a herd when they’re not working. In the morning a couple riders go out and herd them in to be saddled up and do their work for the day. I was fortunate enough to catch them crossing the creek that meandered through the property. I loved the gestures of the horses as they plowed through the water and up the other bank, and the variety of colors and values of the different characters as they zig-zagged through the scene.

Sudan, the last male Northern White Rhinoceros, died in 2021, and I cried over the news. This painting is of a Southern White Rhinoceros that we were thrilled to see in South Africa in 2019. There are only about 17,000 of these beautiful creatures left in the wild and action must be taken to STOP the market for their horns, which are made of the same material as our fingernails and have no medicinal use at all.

The Red, The Yellow, The Purple
Oil on linen canvas, 16" x 16", $2400
I like my paintings to express happiness. I use my artistic skills to create art that will give people joy and hope. Art is my tool for helping to make the world a better place. My painting The Red, The Yellow, The Purple is from this idea of happiness.

Memories of a Painted Horse
Soft pastel on archival board, 24" x 30", $8800
Reflecting on a year of instability at every level, knowing that the chaos has disrupted every one of us, led me down a road of self-reflection and a desire to dig deeper into why I paint. Memories of a Painted Horse brings me back to a time in my life where four legs and a mane and tail were everything to me. A lifelong love of the horse for their beauty, heart and strength has been a thread in my life that continues to this day. This piece is about the spirit of the past looking forward to tomorrow.

The figure has always been a focus of my art. I discovered early on when drawing and painting models in the studio that the un-choreographed moments, the “between poses”, were what intrigued me the most. I paint common experiences, the small stories between poses. I’m also intrigued by light, which is as much a subject of my painting as the people who are in them. In Beach Belly I was struck by the little girl’s fascination with her belly and the beautiful light on her hair and shoulders.

Buster in Paradise
Oil on linen panel, 16" x 20", $3000
Buster was a dog who loved to accompany his human companion, Floyd, fly fishing on the gin-clear waters of the Chimehuin River in Patagonia.
It was comical to watch him in his obsessive attempt to catch a fish. It was his favorite place and pastime, truly his paradise.

Soft pastel on wood board, 25" x 20", $4375
As the horse and rider reflect on where they’ve come from, the use of color, and black and white, transition from one to the other. Reflections explore the two. It is a challenge to have black and white in the midst of a world of color. Utilizing the wood grain as the medium tone, the black and white needs to be more powerful if it is to make a statement. Thus, marrying the two, and inviting the viewer’s eye to follow the path from black to color, through the grain of wood and back.

Garden of Eden
Oil on canvas with gold leaf, 14" x 11", $2500
My painting Garden of Eden depicts the moment after Eve eats the forbidden fruit and realizes she is naked. In that moment, she feels shame and the need to cover herself. Her demure posture and look express her vulnerability. Bright green colors and gold leaf in the background portray not only the unspoiled beauty but also the fresh lush nature that surrounds her.

Before the Cut
Oil, 30" x 30", $12,000
Cutting rodeo events require a horse and rider to separate a calf from a small herd. Once the calf is separated, the horse’s skill and instincts are required to keep the calf from rejoining the herd. Watching the performance, I saw that a lot of strain occurs on the horse’s legs as it moves from side to side in quick motion to keep the calf from returning to the fold. This young lady was preparing her cutter horse for the competition in the Junior Rodeo. I was inspired by her tender dedication in applying the leg braces.

The Fish Cleaning
Oil on aluminum panel, 18" x 30", $5000
If you've ever been on a fishing boat you're sure to have witnessed a scene like that depicted in The Fish Cleaning. I wanted to capture that moment, motoring back to the harbor, gulls in tow, deckhands hustling to fillet the catch. I really enjoy the colors out at sea; on a clear day there seems to be blue reflecting in just about everything.
– Dakota PittsPurchase Inquiry Art Lover's Choice
Oil on linen on panel, 20" x 24", $2199
This piece combines my love of light with a passion for experimenting with color. Sometimes when I work on a piece, it's not immediately apparent to me that it holds a deeper meaning beneath the surface. In this case, I came to realize that I was drawn to this scene because it captured a sense of diversity in this random group of people going about their day. It spoke to my hope for progress in appreciating our unique differences as we all together travel through this human condition called life.

During a safari in Botswana I was mesmerized by the stripe patterns on the zebras, especially within a herd. My painting, Zebras, is not only a homage to these equids, but it is also an effort to capture the mesmerizing pattern in their stripes.
This painting is also intended to remind people of the tragic loss if they aren’t protected. Burchell’s Zebra, once considered extinct, currently has sufficient population to no longer be considered endangered, unlike much of African wildlife. Yet population pressure still exists.

Back to Black
Oil on linen, 16" x 20", $3250
As an artist, I try to be sensitive to not only the external appearance of things, but also the internal narrative (even if it mostly exists in my response to the model). The model’s fleeting melancholy expression made me wonder what was troubling her. Somehow, I kept thinking of the Amy Winehouse song ‘Back to Black’. Pushing that emotion in the painting, I made certain to depict the brow of distress by lifting the inner corner of her eyebrows slightly.

While the pandemic-locked world looked upon the video of sheriff, police and lifeguard patrols giving chase to a lone surfer in the waters of Malibu, a tribe of surfers were surfing to the south. That tribe decided to embrace the risks, living apart from the growing shadow of worldwide fear. California had inadvertently provided opportunities for us to surf together.
One of our tribe is Black Shark. A unique character, for reasons known to our tribe, his story will stay part of our subculture and travel with the future owner of this work.

I value the passages of life that are often overlooked. In late-day light, I quietly turned my head and lingered to gaze at my son lying next to me on the beach. In the prime of life, he had returned home from an adventurous year-long journey. This moment inspired my painting of private reverie and dreamland clouds.

A Sonnet in Blue and Gold
Oil on canvas, 34" x 21", $8500
Mysterious and beautiful, draped in blue, touched by fire, the sound of music moving her in the dark.
Color play, as an exercise in artistic restraint, is what birthed this painting. Built on a problem I gave to myself: to create a painting with visual impact that contained the concept of dominant soft blue playing against warmer golds in an atmosphere of mystery. Painted with thinner paint than I normally use, this was an exploration in building more with less.

The Links of Her Rubicon
Oil on linen, 34" x 21", $8500
This experimental piece is pure metaphor; what it says is up to the viewer.
Two of many possibilities:
"I have crossed the Rubicon" said Julius Caesar. The point from which there is no going back, the decision becomes action and, win or lose, the course is set. Yet prior to that moment, small acts add up, each act, each link, moving inexorably to the point of no return.
At the same time...the chain with which she has been held back becomes the means of her freedom.
There is no one answer. Art stimulates the imagination.

Hide and Seek
Watercolor on paper, 16" x 18", $1900
These are a pair of Gold Dust Geckos that I observed at a restaurant in the town of Captain Cook, on the Big Island of Hawaii. The owners of the restaurant put small containers of guava jelly on the windowsills, attracting these colorful geckos, much to the delight of the customers at the window tables. This pair was also attracted to the water in the vase of flowers on my table. They appeared to be playing hide-and-seek, as one patiently waited on the flower and the other went down into the vase for a drink of water.

While I was in Santa Marta, Colombia a couple of years ago for an international art show, I took a side trip to the little fishing town of Taganga. The landscape is very dry there, full of flowering cactus that attract beautiful orioles like the one in this painting. The birds are able to navigate the thorns to open the sweet center of the fruit of the cactus. A treat for sure in this hot dry desert.

The Indian Girl
Oil on wood, 10" x 8", $1000
Lin Zheng received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in oil painting from Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 1982. His passion for oil paintings began at 12, and has never changed. For many years, he has produced high-quality oil paintings, which are influenced by his zeal for color, light and shadow. His impressionistic brushstrokes and strong tones of light and dark stimulate the eye and pleasantly guide the viewer to the focal point, and add to the sense of drama.
