Our ‘senior’ neighbour Whiskey, who likes nothing more than to watch the world go by from his sunny doorstep – and at 14 years old, who can blame him for taking it steady? :O)

Original photograph taken with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3. Orton-ised, tweaked and layered with my own textures in Photoshop CS3.

An expressionistic, exploratory artist, I create without restraint or intent. I am a passionate advocate of natural learning, and this organic approach informs all of my work, giving my creations their vibrancy and spontaneity. An abiding love of nature keeps me going when my rather warped sense of humour fails. Above all, I reject the dysfunction and pain our culture perpetuates. More of the same is of no interest to me. I say “YES” to that which is life-serving: let a new paradigm emerge!

    What a lovely shot of a sweet old dog.
    Congratulations on your feature

  • Thank you, Debbie-anne :o) He’s a lovely, mellow old chap – it always makes me smile to see him lying there with his cute little legs splayed out behind him: not many humans of equivalent years would be that flexible, eh? ;o)
