Resting at Peace in Vienna

One of our most moving excursions in Vienna was visiting the National Cemetery. It  was incredibly beautiful. The grounds were massive, the statuary was incredible and you could tell that the people interred here were loved.

The Magic Moment


The Magic Moment by Mark Henson.

Oil on Canvas


The most mystical time of day, the sun has just set, a tiny crescent moon emits a soft glow covering the sweethearts as they snuggle in the sun-warmed sand. Its the magic of the heart that gives life meaning. Bonding with eternity, they gaze into each others souls as the stars begin to twinkle in the night.

Half Life by Mark Henson

Many artists eventually paint a skull. “To be or not to be” or somewhere in the middle. Most paint the skull in blue or in dark shadows. This lovely fellow is warm, friendly, almost glowing bathed in the soft light, smiling at the rose in the half full glass; or is the glass half empty? That is the question.

Many artists eventually paint a skull. “To be or not to be” or somewhere in the middle. Most paint the skull in blue or in dark shadows. This lovely fellow is warm, friendly, grateful, almost glowing, bathed in the soft light, smiling at the rose in the half full glass; or is the glass half empty? That is the question.

February is for Lovers

February is Romance month for lovers.
Sweethearts have a special place in our life
because love makes our consciousness eternal.


Throughout history, love has spawned heroic deeds;
temples built honoring the sacred secrets of the heart.


Remember you the nights of our union
And the light of your spirit that was a halo around us?
And the angels of lovehovered above us singing and chanting  in the things of the spirit?


From the writings of Kahlil Gibran


This month we are offering a sweetheart special on some of Mark’s most romantic pieces.

Fast Food Chain

Fast Food Chain

That’s Ebola with the orange and blue stripes, HIV the balls on the left, the orange tubes, e. coli, dysentery creeping up the right bottom corner, the perfect golden spheres in the lower middle are man made retro-viruses. We are making disease ridden population conditions possible by our shortsightedness. Over Dwindling resources, over indulgence, the global balance requires  a predator  for humans. What better natural global defense than our tiniest creatures. We are food for them.

So come and enjoy the feast at the

New painting released, “On Temple Steps”

On Temple Steps
24 x 30 inches

Ancient ruins surround a couple whose love is as fresh as the buildings are old. Eternal love expresses itself quietly on the temple steps. The still waters reflect the beauty of the temple and lovers. Romance has been around forever. Mankind’s finest architectural treasures are devoted to love. Some temples took generations to carve, the sculpting arts passed down through extended families. Incredibly enough, some temples are hewn from one giant rock.
