This should bring me up to date for the last 4 months. Some of the work shown are enlargement details of former paintings. I work with a resolution of 300ppi which allows me to make these enlargements of selected areas of a painting.

I think it's time to resume the Abstract Mind. This stuff is just ramblings and photos of my art for the readers enjoyment.

The time is getting close

October is just one day away and The fall will be very busy for us. Our new apartment is finished, We will get the keys within a few days after we sign more papers and the inspection is approved. Talk about abstracts . Then comes moving day. In between all this I need to vote and fax in my absentee ballot. There's light fixtures buy, a frig. to buy  and a multitude of other small things to buy, Items to get turned off and others turned on, I think you get the idea. All this before the end of Oct. But I still want to keep painting! Well, as Laurie tells me "Take a deep breath, it will all work out" OK then I'll post my latest painting which I called "Red Dog".  A dog sniffing around this mechanical thing. as dogs will do, just before peeing on it and walking away.

Pyramid Scroll

Abstract painting 20x16 inches. Had fun creating this painting because I had no idea what I wanted to paint. I let the design take me and before long I could see how to complete the work.

A quote by Picasso...

This quote is so relevant to today's world where some feel that life is cheap, and power is everything.

“Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.”

Pablo Picasso

Looks Like Rain

It's even raining in Lima Peru. Well the weather people called it a light Drizzle. But I know it's raining in New Orleans today. So I took a weather map and turned it into an abstract and called it "Looks Like Rain". 12x12 digital painting.
