I have been an artist all my life. We are all born artists. Life just knocks out some of it. Ya gotta hang in there!

WORLDSCAPES
These begin from high altitude photography of the earth. There are amazing patterns, colors and textures to be found all over the world. Then I work in, on and around with digital painting and digital collage to make my own art form.

ABSTRACT & ABSTRACT REALISM
These paintings are strictly my own artistic inventions. Some are serious and some keep me laughing all the way to the end.

FRACTAL DESIGNS
Fractals are arrived at by way of a mathematical formula. They’re fascinating and complicated and quite surprising.

This is what the existentialists call the anxiety of nothingness. To live into the future means to leap into the unknown, and this require…

CREATIVITY AND LIFE

bold text / ALL of my life I have been haunted by the fascinating questions of creativity. Why does an original idea in science and in art “pop up” from the unconscious at a given moment? What is the relation between talend and the creative act? How did Homer, confronting something as gross as the Trojan War, fashion it into poetry which became a guide for the ethics of the whole Gre…

I'd like to say something about TITLES...

This is specifically in reference to Abstract work, but applies equally to giving a name to all kinds of artistic endeavors. / An Abstract work shouldn’t need a title. However everyone seems to want one anyhow. I favor titles that don’t make any sense or connection with the picture, for how can you title a picture of nothing… that is, no-thing. / On the other hand, it’s re…
