Abstract ink on canvas hyper-modern art piece, Chunky

Abstract – Chunky

I titled this piece chunky for the strong shapes: It as a photo-object based ink on canvas artwork with lots of contrast and multiple layers. This all started with an idea that popped into my head about strong shapes based on pieces of wood in a pile. And you know how I am, once I […]

Tierra Del Mar Haystack Rock Sunset

Beachcombers near sunset at Tierra Del Mar, with Cape Kiwanda and Haystack Rock in the background. I haven’t been posting much, lately. Mostly, I just haven’t been that happy with my work. Little pleases me. I sort of liked this one, though. I might have one or two others that I found interesting and I […]

Honey Bee Macro photo

Honey Bee

A honey bee feeds on sweet nectar from a pretty yellow flower. This is the kind of photography I do for personal entertainment. Frankly, I am over-tired from taking art and photography seriously. If it isn’t fun, it isn’t worth doing. Well, that’s how I feel about it for now. The full size version of […]

What I had with me was my iPhone equipped with my favorite app; 645 Pro. It’s hard to see the screen in sunlight but I framed it up with the most […]

Abstract Watercolor on paper - 51 by Pagani

Abstract on Paper: 51

Well this was interesting, at least to me: Someone contacted me looking for one of my paintings and it happened to be from a series that I had forgotten! He provided a thumbnail photo,though and I rummaged around and eventually found a print-sized scan of the painting on an old hard drive. This work is […]

gnarled path abstract photography-based art

Gnarly Path

Twisted paths are carved through space in this photography-based abstract piece, envisioned 30×30 on canvas. It’s hard to imagine the forces of nature and the decades of work involved in creating this natural artwork. By comparison, the shot framing and selection was easy – although admittedly there were many possibilities from which to choose. More […]
