Portrait of the Artist in Dallol, oil on canvas, 36 x 48, 2019, $4000

This image was taken by my daughter, Sceherazade Goertzel, so this is a joint venture!
She took this picture with her cell phone as we explored the amazing terrain of Dallol, Ethiopia.
It was about 130 degrees fahrenheit, and she was quickly becoming weak with heat stroke
She had to be carried back to the car, and we're so grateful she survived!
Hawaiian Dream, oil on canvas, 18 X 24, 2018, $500

This is an image that I took in Hawaii. I've seen and loved these
plants in many places, but I couldn't tell you what type of plant it is.
Imaginary Angst, oil on canvas, 18 X 24, 2018, $300

This is very different from my usual painting these days,
though not unlike some of my old work. It seems like it
doesn't belong! However, this painting is pivotal to painting
in the Zen manner, taking a break from the intense looking
I otherwise do. It is very freeing, painting from within
instead of without. This was just me using the leftover
paint from my previous painting, a quick and very free painting!
Martinque Mystique, oil on canvas, 18 X 24, 2018, $900


This is a magical view from atop a mountain in Martinique.

Green Hall, oil on canvas, 24 x 36, 2014, $2200

This painting was from an image given to me by my son.
He had asked me for a few years to paint this image
before I actually did.
