April Art

For the CBC April art show, I plan to return to my favorite abstract creatures. I like them, even if no one else does. So, who knows, it all depends on mood and what the magic wand feels like creating. It is looking like these guys are the winners.

Given that the Arts Council could not arrange, or chose not to arrange for indoor display space, I had to pass on the Arts Council February Art Walk. Therefore, I will be showing these, plus a few more nature pictures, at the CBC Arts and Crafts show.

I have just decided to add a few more pictures for the CBC Arts Festival in April, and they are displayed below. They are still vaguely abstract.

May Art

In reviewing my artsy stuff, I came back to some of my infrared art. Here is a collection I might offer in the May Art Walk, assuming I can get off my ass and print them.
They were all originally infrared images taken during the 1970s. I then waved my Photoshop magic wand at them to create the images you see. Most were images from the C&O Canal in the DC area. A few were taken while wandering in Maine. I especially love the IR bear, I titled "jailed".

Art Walk Sometime

Who knows, I may yet display at another art walk, despite not being a real artist . . . they only like real artists at the art walk, don't you know.  But should I decide to fake it yet again ( Cabarrus Art Guild beware) I might show off the following pieces of my pseudoart.  Most are summery pictures I created fairly recently, except for the last picture, also recently created, which portrays a slice of cold weather. It's called "Frosty".

Obviously, I could not allow the eclipse just slip past me without some commentary. Our neighbors Blaire and Jill were so kind to share their glasses with us, so we could actually view the eclipse. I also, decided to photograph the eclipse "through a glass darkly", or by viewing it in our pond.  Then, of course, there were those amazing shadows. They were a special treat. So behold.

Butterfly Magic

Butterflies  are magical creatures. They are so lovely with such glamorous designs that they almost make you believe in a creator. If it weren't for humans, a creator would seem almost plausible.
I captured a buttery cavorting amidst our lantana and could not resist showing her (him?) off. For your viewing pleasure.
