As an artist, Rhonda enjoys an extensive range of visual interests and diverse techniques. Her art is a blend of styles; a fusion of surreal and modern mixed with traditional and classical. That can be seen in topics of her art, but also in the various subjects that become CGI manipulations. Her art has won several awards and honors.

Rhonda is a semi-professional photographer with her main media being Photoshop. She creates 3D art and images in Incendia and Apophysis and then uses these “fractals” in her art creations formed and blended with her original photographs in Photoshop. She also uses Picture Window Pro and Corel Photo.

She has an Associate’s degree in Science Multimedia acquired in 2001; a happy accident when she took a Bitmap Imaging class at the local junior college one summer. This opened a door of opportunities that she never knew existed and a new career for her; a web developer and graphic designer. She started her own little company in 1998 called RestLeSs Designs.

Rhonda has also been writing poetry as far back as 1968. One of her life goals had been to illustrate her poems and short stories. In 2009 she began to embark on that bucket list item. Not only has she been able to do this for the majority of her poetry, she has also been inspired to write poems and stories for new works as she creates them. Her inspiration comes from many places. She says that she is oftentimes inspired by music; all genres, old and new.
She is involved with several art associations within her community. She was recently elected to the board as secretary for Studio 395 Foundation, Inc.

This RedBubble place is quite a wonderful one. I have been involved since August 09 & I have been welcomed, embraced, inspired and encouraged beyond anything I had ever even considered possible. I have loved it here for the longest time. Although it has evolved into a more commercial place and I don’t hang her as often as I used to I am still amazed at the amount of fabulously talented individuals there are here. I am honored to be among all of you.

Autumn Evening



My abstract side finally got brave enough to crawl from under the covers and start to dance… And I am so happy that it found a place to do so. . . Where else but Redbubble would I be able to create to my hearts desire and have people, actual talented artists appreciate and even reward me for these expressions of dreams and music inspirations? What a total and complete salvation and pleasure for this to be happening. . . honestly, sincerely, truthfully.

So, my abstract side – it is taking me to worlds only imagined in my minds eye. As eon . says above, our grandparents could never have believed what is able to be created with this new tech. Even James Cameron said that 10 years ago when he was thinking up his ideas for the movie Avatar he knew he could not make that movie back then. He had such a vision of how he felt it should be presented that he waited. He knew one day there would be the technology created that would help him paint the picture of what he was writing exactly the way he viewed it in his mind and wanted to to convey it.

Back to my abstract side; It has always been there, lurking, hiding, not really knowing how to express itself. And the few times it did dare to come into the daylight it was usually laughed at or chased away. No more, no more. . . With the encouragement of the talented, friendly, awesome artists (some who have become friends) I am able to finally feel free enough, encouraged enough, inspired enough to step out of the box & wave my freak flag :o) Thank you RB & my RB villages for doing that for & with me….

We Lost Another Drag Racing Legend

My dad, Jr. Thompson, passed peacefully at about 7:15pm Saturday evening, May 28th, 2016 / Jr. 83, was in the mid-final stages of dementia and had congestive heart failure. His body was here with us but it was no longer him. He had very few cognitive moments and when he did he just wanted to end the suffering. His heart complied and he took his last breaths Saturday with my mom, my brother and m…

We Will Miss Our Little Char Char. . .

Charlotte “Char Char” left us on Saturday, January 30th, 2016. Her little heart gave out and she fell into the sleep of death. She was acquired in March of 2011 as a temporary visitor when her owner could no longer keep her where she lived. She made us love her and we were able to keep her and give her a good, stress free life in her twilight years. She was overall very healthy an…
