Early PaintingThe Art of Joel Fletcher

Here are some metaphysical visions from my minds eye translated to paintings on canvas. These imaginative pieces were created quite a while ago, before animation became my main creative outlet. Most were painted in acrylic, and range in size from 36 x 50 to 12 x 12 inches. Click on an image for a large view.
