My Visionary Art

I like to paint in a manner that could fall into the genre of Visionary Art.  I often dance around that term because there have been so many great visionary paintings I a tremble to even attempt to put myself in their spheres.

Many visionary artists paint after being influenced by Psychedelics and some can be found on this blog post: http://www.arthistoryarchive.com/arthistory/visionary/

But historically there have been many painters that have been visionary without the use of chemicals, where artists have painted an unseen, a  world not viewed with the mundane eye.

 My own art comes from dreams, a deep respect and contact with nature and a strong yoga and meditation practice. With that caveat, here are some of my “Visionary” paintings.
