Two New Paintings

Its really been a long time since I've posted anything, but I wanted to share two new paintings that Ive been working on. The first is a representation of an idea in Yogic philosophy. The concept is that one of the biggest obstacles to achieving a clear and balanced mind is the incorrect perception of things. This causes us to think and act in ways that are harmful to ourselves and others. It is not easy to recognize our incorrect comprehensions, but we can easily recognize the symptoms, namely fear, attachment, refusal and ego....
The second painting is a still life with flowers, I was inspired to paint it after seeing a giant, magnificent still life with flowers a few weekends ago at the Getty museum. I've included some photos from that weekend, the full set can be seen here.

Hurray! You're back! Nice Getty pics! Paintings are cool too. I wonder if there is a better way to take pictures of your paintings though, so you don't get so much glare or skewed perspective.
