Art Defines Us

Great civilizations are not remembered by their business people or political leaders. They are remembered by their art.

For Bigger Images On Pinterest, Use Your Crop Tool

On Pinterest, the image is the beginning, middle and end of the story, so the quality of images in your Pinterest stream is likely better than anywhere on the Internet. But there is a problem with this visual feast: The Pinterest interface is best-suited to...

SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE

Although there are literally thousands of images of this architectural icon, the Sydney Opera House ultimately proved irresistible — I had to create my own! The finished piece evolved from multiple layers of fractals and color, all sandwiched together digitally to...

2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing

Rolling Art! I’m writing today from my “Is this cool or what?” department. After more than 50 years, Mercedes-Benz will once again produce a gullwing sports car. Have a look: Nice, yes? Their mid-1950s 300 SL is counted among the world’s most...

MAPLE TWIST

When it comes to creating art, I’m managing to stay productive. I completed MAPLE TWIST this past weekend and couldn’t wait to plug it into the blog. Once again, I worked extensively with various grayscale versions of this piece throughout its creation,...

EDGE OF EDEN

I plucked this beautiful sprig of leaves from a bush in my backyard. I wish I could tell you the name of the plant. However, when inspiration strikes I am only concerned with making art. From a botany point of view, I only know it’s hearty enough to withstand...

Sedona Valentine (1 and 2)

I must be in my RED period; I couldn’t get enough red when working on these two ethereal pieces. That, and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. For all you lovers. Hmmm. Is framed art more impressive than a card? Oh my yes! It’s fun to be up...

Hey Sailor! You’re Not Lost Again, Are You?

Artists are a lost bunch. All of us. We’re always pushing the envelope, burning the midnight oil, biting off more than we can chew and forging trails where there aren’t any. I may look like I know exactly what I’m doing, but I can assure you...

THE JUPITER EXPEDITION — A Study in Tonal Harmony

I generally keep my work color-neutral until the final stages, preferring to concentrate on concept, composition, design, and focal point before developing a color palette. This insures that the work has a solid tonal foundation which isn’t lost when color is...

What’s In A Name?

Titles are not just a way to catalog art, but an important signpost which connects artists to their audience. Thoughtful naming allows/suggests a path for viewers to more fully experience the art’s meaning and it’s overall effect. For me, naming a new...

Beautiful Black & White; Beautifully Unexpected

Design is my passion. When creating art, I see and feel design long before color, texture or even representative objects are a consideration. I spend inordinate amounts of time working out rhythm, harmony, contrast, tension and balance for each of my fine art...
