Visionary Realism celebrates light and form in the real world, while envisioning deeper, unseen connections. These visual elements are united to create a new and unique reality, somewhere between the surreal and science.

Jackrabbit with Kokopelli
Jackrabbits are so interesting. I find their expressions to be quite human. They often remind me of a particular person. Kokopelli is the name of the flute-playing rabbit on the textured rock behind the rabbit. His image is often found among petroglyphs on cliff walls and boulders throughout the southwestern US, sometimes as a human figure, but occasionally as a rabbit, bug or other animal. Petroglyphs are images and symbols carved in stone. Kokopelli is said to be the "water bearer" or perhaps represent fertility. I see him as a mysterious wandering minstrel spreading joy.
