Recent Work - 2011.12 Part 3

Abstract 73

Part 3 of the Recent Work series is titled Abstract 73. It was shot on the same day as the two previous posts and also as next week's Part 4 post.
     I've had good response to these abstract photographs, with the most frequent comment being "What is it?" Some people have figured them out and others prefer not to know.
     With that in mind, I submit the following description of today's post - "It's very timely."

     If you really must know more, drop me an email at and I'll fill you in. Otherwise, enjoy the photo and the holidays.

Parts 1 & 2 of the series.

Abstract 47

Abstract 47 is the next image in a series of recent work.
     I keep looking through the lens of my camera, finding new visions to share with anyone willing to expand their visual sensitivities.

Last week, I posted Rechanneling Morris Louis.

Recent Work - 2011.12 Part 1

Rechanneling Morris Louis

Rechanneling Morris Louis is the first in a series of recent images that were spawned by a curator's comment; "You're still shooting abstracts aren't you?"
     It sounded more like a directive than a question. And it hinted at a suggestive compliment, albeit a subtle one.
     Let's face it. As artists, we all want comprehension by our audience of our ideas, our attempts, our creations. We strive for the moment when someone shares our vision and nods validation.
