Silent Wisdom


This is a piece I painted for the group show “Gaia Reborn” curated by Beautiful Bizarre Magazine at the Urban Nation gallery in Berlin, Germany!  As of this writing, the original painting (an acrylic painting on a 16″x12″ panel in a glorious 25″x21″ frame) is available from Beautiful Bizarre online here – they are happy to ship worldwide, she is priced at $5400.

The “Gaia Reborn” theme of course is the collaborative vision of many artists (you can check out the other pieces from the show on the Beautiful Bizarre website) showing many interpretations of what a nature based utopia could look like.  Ideas of co-existing with the plant and animal life on our planet and the appreciation of natural beauty were elements encouraged for the exhibition.  I’ve celebrated the bounty our planet and included a still-life-esque tableaux of wine and glorious fruits.  If you look closely, you will see one of the plums actually appearing to bear the continental visage of our planet Earth.

There is a lot happening in this piece – take a close look at the reflection in the wineglass of in the background – a little nod to M.C. Escher and all the other artists of the past who have enjoyed hiding self-portraits of themselves painting inside their paintings.  You can see me holding my blue palette & wearing my green painting apron, lol, and even see the palm trees and view out my studio window in the reflection!

I show off the original painting (also I did a varnishing tutorial on this one) up at my Twitch channel – you can listen to me talk more about this piece and see her come to life on my YouTube Channel here .

On a side note – the owl featured in this painting is a “Barred Owl.”  While I was painting this piece, an actual Barred Owl (the first time I’ve ever seen one in my yard!) showed up about five feet away from my studio window, which seems very auspicious to me!

The original painting is available and can be seen at the gallery or purchased from them via email/phone for worldwide shipping, and we have prints and canvases available worldwide now!

The Masterpiece Limited Editions are now SOLD OUT.  We do have available the Open Edition Canvases which are remarqued with the JBG initial on the front, measure 12″x16″ (also wrapped & ready-to-hang) and come with a signed certificate of authenticity.



Additional Details

All Glossy Photo Prints are printed on a glossy photo paper with Canon Lucia archival inks and signed ON THE BACK by ME, the artist. Small prints are printed on 8.5×11″ sheets, large prints on 13×19″ sheets, and XL prints on 17″x 22″ but the printed area will reflect the odd dimensions of the painting itself. When you select the print size and type that you want to purchase, the Printed Area Dimensions will appear below your selection. Please note the dimensions to make sure that the print you select is a size that will work for your needs. We cannot provide custom print sizes at this time. What you see offered is what is available.


The Masterpiece Limited Edition Canvases (18″x 24″, hand embellished, signed & numbered out of 5 at $595 each) are now sold out!  We do have the  Open Edition Remarqued Canvases (12″x16″ with a signed certificate at $125 each) available. All canvas prints are made on canvas with Canon Lucia archival inks. They are wrapped on boards and stretched over a frame and shipped ready-to-hang. The canvas sides are printed in black, creating a natural self-framing effect, so you don’t have to purchase an additional frame if you don’t want to. The entire piece is also painted with a UV varnish and then heat set for maximum protection and longevity. They are truly beautiful pieces and it is often difficult to tell them apart from the originals. Both types are on the deeper/thicker gallery wrapped boards than our earlier canvases have been, very sturdy and solid, and match the profile of those that are sold at Pop Gallery, etc. If you have any questions about the canvas prints or the differences between the Masterpiece Limited Editions and the Open Editions, please contact us!
