Recent Study- 2013-2

The Southeastern United States Presently Has 632 Species On The Endangered Species List....Of That Number, 448 Are Animal And 184 Are Plant Species
Alabama--114 Total--96 Animal--18 Plant
Arkansas--30 Total--24 Animal--6 Plant
Florida--111 Total--57 Animal--54 Plant
Georgia--66 Total--43 Animal--23 Plant
Kentucky--47--38 Animal--9 Plant
Louisiana--26--23 Animal--3 Plant
Mississippi--38 Total--34 Animal--4 Plant
North Carolina--63 Total--36 Animal--27 Plant
South Carolina--22 Total--22 Animal--20 Plant
Tennessee--95 Total--75 Animal--20 Plant
It Is One's Feeling That These Figures Fall Short Of The True Numbers, Particularly As Far As Plant Species.........
So What Does This Have To Do With Art And Artists?...........Everything!........Artist Should Be The Caretakers And Guardians Of The Planet

Recent Study- 2013-9

A Simple Fancy...........A Farewell To The Tyranny Of The Understood............The Stubborn Insistance Of Known...........Welcome The Pure Necessity Of Future Vision....Embrace It..........It Is The Stuff Of One's Evolution......The Absoluteness Of Imperative

Excellent Movement And Flow Throughout The Month Of October…….Quite A Change In Imagery, Additional Technique(s) As Well As Mental Processes Themselves……..One Is Certain That Importance Of Work Completed Over The Month Lies Probably More In What It Will Contribute To The Future Than Present Significance…………..There Are Many Changes And Many Things To Be Considered Within Those Changes(Not To Mention The Fact That There Are Things Within Them That I Do Not Presently Understand But Feel Strongly About As Far As Their Place In Development)………Several Of The Images Are Quite Lovely And Do Indeed Get To The Source While Others Are Absolutely Chaotic But Possessed Of That Something Which Really Draws One In………..And A Few Even Are Heavily Derivative And A Seeming Regression Of Some Work I Did Years Ago…………..Yet Within Them There Are Subtle Differences As Well As Additions………..Actually, I Guess The Month’s Developments Really Get To The Core Of My Beliefs About Source, Energy, Change And Development……………….That…………………….Energy Of Thought Enters That Stream of Consciousness(And Unconsciousness For That Matter) Which Finds Its’ Way Into The Fabric Of Nature’s Constant And Infinite Evolution

DoDa

So, Starting This New Month Off Right………….Already See Imagery And Thought "Coming Together" As A Result Of October Efforts…………Ground Regains Importance……..Is Indeed, In Many Instances, My Source…………..Imagery Slowly Returning To Simplicity, Bringing The Return Of My Less Is More Philosophy………………

DoDa

Soon My Beloved Swamp Will Begin Its’ Winter’s Sleep………….Migratory Patterns Have Been Set, Leaves Begin Their Fall, Intensity And Duration Of Sun Grows Less…….Life In This Place On This Planet At This Particular Time……………..And As Those Seasonal Changes In Nature, So Do I, Evolve

In This Place, On This Planet, At This Particular Time
