White Rabbit is the artist's first allegory, a painting that explores modern sociological issues and stereotypes through classical literature. Drawing on C.S. Lewis's "Alice in Wonderland", the painting depicts a group of Hells Angels having a tea party that is about to be busted by the police in front of a building that displays two murals: one of the modern day Berlin Wall where the Dancing to Freedom banner is being sucked away by SWAT Team members.

Filled with symbolism, it depicts a vague memory that his friend has of her father, as she and her sister watched him reading a book in a forest in Idyllwild, California, where he was teaching performing arts classes. He is shown in the forest scene and on stage working on a set for an upcoming play. Billboards from Stanford University and UCLA, his alma maters, decorate the set, and the Stanford Chapel is seen in the glowing forest sunlight.

Julia Backstage (Commissioned-SOLD), acrylic on canvas, 20" X 16", an Homage to Edgar Degas and Classical Ballet, by fine artist George Porter.

Julia Backstage captures the feeling and softness of Edgar Degas pastels in a different medium (acrylic), and on a different substrate (canvas). Truly a masterpiece in its own right. Although the original painting has been sold, a fine art canvas print of Julia Backstage is available for purchase in the artist's online shop.
