These Divine compositions are large in scale, and Jonathan tends to work on several at one time, as they unfold at different rates. In order to create paintings of this nature, the Artist is guided to prepare by hand the materials and the canvases in specific ways. It is during the process of preparing the supports that the Artist will receive a glimpse in his mind as to how the composition will unfold. There is no use of models or staging in any way.

11. Treatise on Geometric Knots
For millenia, Geometric Knots have been used to uplift individuals' spiritual and energetic vibrations, strengthen the intellect, train the mind, and accelerate overall cognitive function. They are an excellent tool in letting go of destructive emotions, while soothing and pacifying one's state of being. As symbols of beauty, harmony, symmetry, balance, and interconnectivity, they are very inspiring to have on the wall in an office or home, or to have in a private collection for study.
111. Tibetan Yogic Manuscript
Jonathan collaborated with a long time friend, translator, and carrier of a Tibetan yogic lineage, Joshua Kinney, with the intention of creating a manuscript using geometric knots to enseal the energetic power of this sacred text. This is the first English translation of a 9th century Tibetan buddhist yogic instructional text which came into the possession of their lineage in the 15th Century. Its aim is to guide high level practicing yogis in the process of conducting a dark retreat. All of the Artwork and knot work were inspired during Jonathan's familiarization with the text. This esoteric text is not meant to be used without the proper direction of a Master and is presented here merely for aesthetic enjoyment.
