Work In Progress

From the "In Progress" folder, a combination oil painting and digital sketch.  Not sure what the final work will look like, but for me, this is an exciting stop along the way.  When the paint dries, I plan to go back in.

Orange, Goes Well With Black

A collaborative work in progress to be sure, and, digitally manipulated, the original for which the above is based is still predominantly black on white.  I couldn't resist adding the orange, for that satisfying hit of saturated color.  

Dr. Ju and I have been working together again, and what a creative pleasure.  Written in Chinese characters, what does the above mean you ask?  All I can tell you is that it is a poem, some such as, "I am home drinking green tea, all is peaceful, and I am reading a poem from one of the ancient masters".  

All those who would create mayhem in our world could learn a lot here.

Supra Natural

Above, a photo illustration.  Just having fun with a recent photo on a rainy day, transforming the natural into something supra natural, and creating something never seen before.
