pc110060.jpg- Conceptual Art- Natural Imperatives
Recent Study- 2012-12

What Have We Become?.........This I Wonder As I Listen To Beethoven On NPR........Yes, I Know,  I Know............Same Things Existed Then As Now............Seems Like We Would Learn, Doesn't It?.........Twentieth Century Surely Should Have Taught Us A Lesson...............Yes, What Have We Become Over Our 200,000 Year History?(Give Or Take A Few).........Maybe Should Be Asking, What Are We?...........Now, In The Twenty First Century, Already Things Are Pretty Much The Same.......Obviously Troublesome From The Human Perspective.........Guess That's Why I Stay In The Wilderness So Much........Not That Things Are So Simple There(Which They Are)........Things Just "Work" There.........Together, In One Harmonious Whole(Yes, Things Eat Other Things........That Is Just The Way Things Evolved On This Particular Planet..............But There Is No Greed............Only Necessity..............And Much, Much Respect)...........One Can See Out There What "Things" Have Become.............And Further, With Just A little Thought, One Can See Where They Are Going...............But Us, What About Us?...........Afraid That Glass Is Rather Clouded And Confused...............One Can Be Certain That If We Do Not Change, Become Totally, Absolutely "Aware" , Then The Picture Becomes Rather Minimal, Even Blank(Malevich?).............No, I'm Not A Doomsayer....My Optimism Is With Nature, As It Always Will Be....................She Does Use That Part Of Our Energy Which Is Positive, Constructive And Contributory..............Comes A Point Though In The Life Of Any Species At Which A Crossroads Is Met............Species Must Adapt, Change And Evolve.....Or......Face The Same Fate As So Many Millions Which Have Come Before

octg31.jpg- Contemporary Art - New Image
Recent Study - 2013-10

Image As Free And Open And Evolving As The Wildness Of Nature..................No, Not Quiet Or Introspective...........But Ebullient, Changing, Exploding To The Whim Of A Moment..............Imagery Not Content Of Stasis But Ever Changing As Nature, As Thought Itself

p6160071.jpg- Non Objective Art

Image Cannot Survive Without Source............Is This The Malady Facing Art Today?...........Loss Of Source?.........Shouldn't Be.............Return To Nature...........Return To Source.............Return To Existence Of True Meaning And Yes, Service

p8165151.jpg- Symbiosis - Art And Mutualism
Recent Study - 2011-8

Lyrical Abstraction?--Neo Expressionism?--Natural Logic?

242study.jpg--Shotgun Art
Recent Study

Easy To Question Previous Myth...........How Could Anyone Possibly Believe That?(That Sort Of Thing)...............Makes Great Opera Though.................Easy To Question Present Myth...........How Could Anyone Possibly Believe That?(That Sort Of Thing)...........Quite Critical To Our Species Though.............At Least For Now...........Reason, That Sort Of Thing You Know............But When It Becomes A Detriment To The Species, Isn't It Time To Replace It With New Myth?..............Or, "Heaven" Forbid, Something Far Beyond Myth

Thought............The Energy And Consciousness Of The Universe(S)

pc110077.jpg-Contemporary Painting - Abstraction
Recent Study - 2012-12

Is There Time Left For Eloquent Passage?
Is Madness To Be Resolved With Anarchy?
Do The Drums Beat Slowly Toward Their Own Silence?
Are Infinite Possibilities Reduced To Broken Shards?
Will This Episode End With Enlightenment Or Emptiness?
Are Voices Of Reason Relegated To Pathos?

p8165128.jpg- Truths - Species Extinction -- Us

Twenty Five Thousand Miles Of Uncertainty Amidst The Temperate Bliss...............One Causal, And Should Not Be...........The Other Natural, And Should..................

20111115_93.jpg- Contemporary Abstract Painting
Recent Study - 2011-11

At What Point Do We Place Ourselves On The Endangered List?...........Or.........Are We Already Past That Point?...........Or........Is The List Reserved Exclusively For Those Species That Indeed, Had Reason?

p6160051.jpg-Abstract Painting- Creative Evolution
Recent Study - 2012-6

Non Objective Art--Abstract Form, Color, Tone

p3030070.jpg- Contemporary Louisiana Artist
Recent Study - 2013-3

Perhaps I Use The Term "Planet Dying" Incorrectly As Well As Too Often.............Actually, It Is Transforming, Regenerating(Death Is Nonexistent In My World), Something It Must Periodically Do(At Least 5 Episodes Before Us)......This Present Transformation Of Course Is Totally Unnecessary As Its' Source Is Derived Of One Particular, Just One, Species.....Now One Wonders Who Could That Be?

octg19.jpg- Louisiana Artist - Gallery
Recent Study- 2013-10

Funny How We So Often See Things(Specifically Art(S)) In Terms Of Our Own Life Experiences....................A Simple Form Or Shape Or Color Has A Multitude Of "Interpretations" From Individual To Individual......All Based, In Most Instances, On Above Mentioned Life Experience......Such A Limiting Approach............Finite, Secure, Comfortable............The "Key" To The Universe(S)--Nature--Is Outside One's Self

p4160058.jpg- Seeing
Recent Study - 2012-4

There Really Is No Such Thing As Significance.......Or Insignificance For That Matter........There Is Only The Necessity Of Continuing To Change, Evolve And Grow...........Little Else Matters...........Except Maybe What's For Dinner Tonight

225study.jpg--Mixed Media Abstraction
Recent Study

Yellow Bill Cuckoo Was Here Yesterday........Svelte Looking Character That He Is...................Eating Bugs Off The Side Of My Oak Tree...................Reminding Me That It Is NOT That I Am But That We Are

p3100028.jpg- Painting On Glass
Recent Study - 2013-3

Dimension...............Does It Reside Outside Our Limited Visual Spectrum(Mind)?...........One Can Perceive It...............Feel It.................But To "Arrange" It Visually In The Mind Appears Outside Possibility.............Perhaps Another "Sense" Can Be Developed To Better Understand It..............Perhaps Its' Image Is A Visual Void, Better Expressed By Other Means, Other Methods

p4150052.jpg- New Developments In Art
Recent Study - 2012-4

Imagine How Things Would Change If We Just Viewed Things As They Relate To Other Things........One Of The Most Difficult Problems For Humans--To View Things "Outside Oneself"......Our Self Possession Has Become Almost A "Trademark"...........It Is A Rare Individual That Passes Through Life With No Concern For Itself But Concern For Everything, The Whole.............Our Self Possession Also Leads To Our Unique Consumptive Behavior, Which, Of Course, Is At The Root Of Many Of The Problems Facing The Species, The Earth, Today...........I Would Simply Ask Any Person To Constantly Question His/Her Actions-Reactions And Attempt To View Things In Terms Of The Whole...................What Are The Affects One Has As A Result Of An Action?............Just That Simple Question Would Be Life Changing.................It Would Make A "World" Of Difference

20111115_47.jpg- Non Objective Art
Recent Study - 2011-11

They Stand Tall With Their Tops Flattened And Trimmed By Lightning.........A Very Few Left Around In Spots Inaccessible.........Old Friends They Are These Moss Draped Natural Monuments.............Superlatives Abound.......Majestic, Breathtaking, Awesome, Etc..............No Sculpture Can Rival..............They Have Witnessed Much These Bald Cypress.........Indeed, Endured Much.................They Are The Silent Sentinals Of The Swamp, Watching Over, Witnessing...........Home To Many, Protection And Sustenance For Others, They Serve Finely Of Reason...........And Purpose...........Care For Them....................Care For Yourself
 
--Life On The River

june9_15_01.jpg-Conceptual Art-Natural Imperatives
Recent Study - 2014-6

Sometimes So Very Difficult To Escape The Quagmire Of Human Thought And Deed....Can Be A Very Heavy Burden If One Allows It...........But...................A Simple Walk In The Woods........................A Paddle Into The Swamp Or Sea Of Wonder.............Quickly Brings One To A Very Simple Truth...............No, Not Myth This Time.............But.................Truth

p4160024.jpg- Non Objective Art
Recent Study - 2012-4

Really Not Certain We Have The Option, Or Luxury, Of Choice Any Longer

june9_39_01.jpg- Contemporary Art Gallery
Recent Study - 2014-6

The Right Of Any Species To Live And Roam Free.................Wasn't That Long Ago That Such A Perfect World Existed...............This Brief Destructive Episode Will Pass.........Earth Will Regain Her Noble Stature

oct28h-005.jpg- Children Of The Sun
Recent Study - 2013-10

No Wonder That So Many Deities Were Based On The Sun...........(Guess Some Still Exist)......Perhaps Difficult To Separate Myth From Reality Here....After All, We Were Born Of It

Would Someone Tell Them Caravaggio Is Dead?

226images.jpg-- Tom McNease

Art(S) Is Not About Possession
Indeed, Exactly The Opposite

Extremely "Excited" State Throughout April……………Each Moment Brought(Brings) Its’ Own Unique Progression Of Thoughts, Ideas And Acts………….I Am Very Well Aware Of The Source But Still Am Amazed As To "Where This Stuff Is Coming From"………Sphere Becomes More Important In Evolution Of Imagery…………..So Many Connotations……..So Many Uses……………So Many Parallels And Derivations And Symbols…………So Many Metaphors AND Realities(We Are, After All, Composed Of Billions Of The Little Things In Varying Arrays Of Replication And Duplication)……………..Returning To "Freer" Use Of Paint In Direct Collaboration With Nature And Natural "Laws" And "Events"……………Do Work Best In This Manner…………..Free Of Formal Constraints And Influences…….And Simple!……..As Simple And Free As Nature Herself………………Less Visual Vocabulary, As I Constantly Harp On, Is More!………..Perhaps I Am A Voice In The Wilderness In This Regard, But A Very Contented One, As Dialogue With Nature Brings The Purest Of Riches………………

DoDa

Must Note That Some Of Month’s Imagery May Appear, On The Surface, At First Glance, Rather Pessimistic……………….Even Nihilistic…………………It Is Not………….Indeed, In My Simple World, It Is Quite Optimistic……………..Sometimes Things May Appear To Be Experiencing Turmoil, Even Catastrophe…………..Which Can(Often Is In This Human World) Be A Temporal Reality…………………….But As Evolution Is The Primary Stuff Of Nature, Such Events Are Brief Episodes………..Something "Better" Will Arise From This Mist Of Stressful Uncertainty……………..It Is Toward This "Something Better" That One’s Creative Thoughts And Deeds Must Be Directed

DoDa

Technical Stuff……………….Who Cares?………..So Much Positive Development In This Area That It Barely Deserves Mention………………Let The Work Speak For Itself!

DoDa

Almost Daily Afternoon(Brief Interludes) Paddles Into Swamp Finally A Reality……..Everything Is In Its’ Full Lush Glory Now, Bathing In Spring Warmth And Exuberant Spirit………………How Nice It Would Be To Paddle Into Endless Wilderness……The Earth Deserves Such Places……………Areas Of Splendour Where All Inhabitants Are Well Meant And Well Respected………..Areas Where The Only Requirement Is Being A Part………………..Areas Where One Can Simply "Be"………

DoDa

Yes, On The Winds Of Change………….Going Into The Month Of May I Can Already See A Tremendous "Shift" In Work……………..Love These Periods Of Chaos And Uncertainty……………………..So Exciting……………….(And Always That Feeling That This Is Really "Huge")……………..So Many New Discoveries And Realizations Lay Ahead………So Many Opportunities To Deepen Natural Dialogue……….Yes, My Thoughts, Ideas, Feelings, Are Gathering For Yet Another Wild Ride On The Howling Winds Of Change And Sublime Evolution……………The Mind Narrows, Focuses………………The Connection Is So Immediate And So Powerful That Nothing Else Exist Outside This Perfectly Natural Following Of Events…….Connection……..Source.…..Tears Of Joy………….Ecstatic Union………………Light……………….And Whispers Of Eloquent Reason…………..Nature
