p6018600.jpg- Mixed Media Abstraction
Recent Study- 2011-6

Nature Really Holds No Mysteries........We Often Like To Think It..............A Useful Notion, One Presumes, When We Do Not Understand, Can't Explain, Something............But It All Is Right There In Front Of Us..............We Simply Have To Open The Mind To Perceived Concepts And Ideas.............No, It Is Not An ABC, Black And White World...............Can One Assign An Algorithm To Consciousness?.......Or Unconsciousness?...............Can One Explain The Source Or Even The Reason Of Life(Death Too For That Matter) Itself?.........If Source Is Infinite, Then So Too Is Reason............I Digress...........Only Energy Of Mind, No Vehicle, No Instrument, Can Venture To The Edges Of The Universe(S)(Figure Of Speech)......Only The Mind Can Turn "Mystery" Into Reality

The World Grows Warmer..............Storms Intensify.........Waters' Rise............And Still, Yes, The Sunsets(Sunrises Too!) Are Magnificent.......Just This One Simple Little Wonder Of Nature Should Make Us Pause And Reflect On The Precious Gifts Of This Wonderful Little Planet.......Everything, Everything, We Do Is Made Possible By Natural  Bounty.............Vehicles, Fuel, Food, Drink, Your Cell Phone, The Paper You Wipe Your Butt With........Oh, Hell.........This List Is Endless..................Point.....................Why Do We Betray What Sustains Us?.........Have We Become Such A Selfish, Consumptive Society That We Literally Are Going To Consume Ourselves To Death?.............There Is An Enormous Urgency Presently...............We Are Coming Face To Face With Ourselves And What We Have Become.......Will We Look Into That Vast Mirror With Yes, Brutal, Honesty And Take Appropriate Action And, Yes, Behavior...........How Many More Sunsets Will We Witness?

p3120026.jpg- Contemporary Louisiana Artist
Recent Study - 2013-3

Nature Has Many Voices...........A Multitude Of Ways To Reveal Of Herself.........To Express........To Speak............To Communicate Through A Mutual And Shared(If Allowed) Consciousness..............We As A Species Are Limited In Our Sensory Abilities........We Have Been Given What We "Need" In The Context Of Our Evolution.............But Our Perceptions Can Range Far Beyond That..........Dialogue With Nature Provides All The "Tools" We Need........(And Close Observation Of Everything, Everywhere)..............It Is Simply A Matter Of Opening One's Mind To What Is Already There........Allowing The Conscious Energy Of Nature To Communicate With One's Own........You Know That Almost Magical Feeling You Get When Walking In A Forest Or Paddling A River, Etc.........That's Nature Speaking Directly To You........Listen.......Listen Carefully...........You Can Reply.......Converse With Her.....................She Will Listen

Recent Study - 2011-5

It Is A Special Place, Isn't It?.........This Earth.....This Tiny Little Planet, One Of Many Orbiting Around One Of Many Suns........Such A Wonder, This Living Little Sphere.......Guess One Could Think Of It As The Embodiment Of "Life".........Pulsing And Growing, Changing And Evolving...........Like So Many Countless Others Out There In A Seemingly(Yet Maybe Not) Vast Universe(S) Caught On The Edge Of A Precarious Sustaining Orbit...........A Few Million Miles, One Way Or The Other, And, We Would Not Be............Nature Would Be Left To Chance On Other Shores........But We Are And In That Single Little Fact We Should Find, Keep, And Spread Joy.........Of Nature.........Of Life

oct30j-017.jpg- New Techniques In Art
Recent Study - 2013-10

Cease Attempts To Control Nature And One Will Have Regained Control Of Oneself.....Artist Particularly Are Prone To This "Controlling" Vulnerability............How Often Does One Hear The Term "Control Of Materials"?........One Can Teach A Monkey To "Control Materials"..............Nothing New Here Though...Artist, Humans, Have Been Attempting To Control Nature And Environs For Several Thousand Years..............Freedom(Particularly Of Expression), True Freedom, Can Only Be Found When One Drops This Unique Impulse Of Control And Allows The Wonder And Yes, Truly Creative Connection With Nature To Manifest Itself In Its Myriad Forms........But The Connection Must Be Made.......One Must Be A Part...............Then, It Is Not A Matter Of "Following Nature's Lead"......It Is A Matter Of Following One's Connected Heart, Mind And Total Being..And Today It Is Much More A Matter Of Necessity.......To Take K A Step Further.........A Matter Of Inner Urgency...........Oops.......Off On A Tangent........Guess What I'm Getting To Is Drop The Control, Live With Nature And All That It Has To Offer...........Experience Of The Wilderness And You Will Experience The Vast Uncharted Wilderness Within Yourself

20110914_113.jpg- Non Objective Art
Recent Study - 2011-9

In My World Art And Nature Are Synonymous............Creation, Creativity.......Nature Is The Ultimate Creator......Always Striving, Seeking, Creating, Evolving..............Always Seeking "Perfection" But Never Attaining It, For No Such Thing Can Ever Occur In An Ever Expanding Universe(S)............If One's Dialogue Is With Nature First, Then The Remainder, As An Artist, Is Easy......Connection With Nature Is Source........Amazingly, Things(Perception, etc) Become As Simple As Nature Herself.......Pursuit Is No Longer A "Goal"...It Is A Simple And Very Profound Reality

My Friends Weren't About Yesterday........Too Hot!.........Probably Laid Up In The Shade At Bank's Edge Somewhere.............Only Eyes And Nostrils Sticking Up Above The Water.......But That's O.K........Above Them, In The Branches, Prothonotary Warblers, Blue Grey Gnatcatchers And My Other Cast Of Characters Were Busy At Work Making A Living..............Odd To Think About The Connection Between The Two............My Scaled Reptilian Friends Basking In The Coolness Of The River While Their Semi Scaled Cousins Feed Above..............Odd To Think That Both Descended From The Same Once Extraordinary Life Forms..........Odd To Think That We Too Descended From Something In That Post Episodic Mix..........Before That Even............And Before That.................Until There Was Nothing..............Yet, Yet Before That Even.........For There Was Nature's Consciousness...............As My Friends In The Trees And Branches, Busy At Work, Creating, Developing, "Making A Living"

The United States Gives(Of The Wealthiest Nations, The Lowest Percentage In The World) One Tenth Of One Percent Of Its Gross Domestic Product To Foreign Aid............Put Another Way, Less Than One Half A Percent Of The U.S. Budget Goes To Foreign Aid.......We Have Ample Resources To Stop World Hunger.......And.....Take On Many Of The World's Problems, From Disease, Basic Rights Of Humanity To Natural Disaster...........Have We Completely Lost The Gift Of Caring?

Pastoral, Coastal, Tropical, Alpine........Images Which Reflect A Quality..............An Ideal.......People Plan Vacations Around Them......Indeed, Envision Lives In Such Settings...........So Why Do We Allow Their Continued And Unabated Destruction?

20110914_42.jpg- Louisiana Abstract Artist
Recent Study - 2011-9

How Many Times And Ways Can The Expression "Art Is Life, Life Is Art" Be Noted.........So True Though..............So Very, Very True...........Life, Life Style, Thought, Idea, Feeling Should Be Much Greater As An Art(Creative) Form(Expression) Than Any Image, Note, Word, Movement Or Form.......One's Product(S) Are Simply An Expression Of One's Life..............Indeed, "Product" Truly Isn't Necessary...........Creative Thought IS

This Month Marks The End Of A Full Year Of Monthly Reviews Of Imagery Produced……….Must Admit That It Has Been An Excellent Method For Tracking Evolution-Development Of Work…………..Can Now See Some Months Took A Lateral Branch On The Developmental Tree, Which Is, Of Course, As It Should Be…………..They Do Have Significance In My Growth And Were Contributory Yet Not Part Of The Flow Of The Whole………….Let’s Call Them Experiments…………..As In Nature, One Is Necessity Bound To Attempt Different Methods, Procedures, Forms And Images…………The Body Of Work As A Whole Reflects Grandly My Dialogue With Nature…………..Reflects Grandly My Life, Thoughts, Ideas And Ideals……………..It Is A Fine Time……………Indeed……A Very Fine Time

DoDa

Expressionism, Abstract, Abstraction, Plastic, Non Objective, Non Representational, Neo, Geo, Homo, Anthro, Ic, Ism, Itic, Ite……………One Would Reckon That Such Terms, Prefixes-Suffixes, Would Have Some Degree Of Relevance……..Certainly Do As Far As Categorization Within A Website…………..Or Book Even For That Matter……..(Even Though Their Usage May Well Be Totally Incorrect)………..Humans Do Enjoy Having Things In Neat Little Boxes, Don’t They?………..Adds A Degree Of Finiteness Thus "Understandability"….Do Think That Any Word Which "Categorizes" Art Should Have A Question Mark After It………Admittedly, I Am One Of Those Humans Who Enjoy "Playing" With Words………….A Few Of Them Even Used In Their Own Well Meant Context(But Very Few)……But Their Relevance And Importance Must Be Tempered With Topical Interest Only……………….For All Present Belief Is Destined To Be Future Myth

DoDa

I Do So Desperately Wish That I Could Have The Same Respect And Admiration For My Own Species As I Do For All My Many Friends In The Wild

DoDa

Life On The River………………At The Edge Of The Swamp…………Dialogues And Conversations…………….Ethereal Connection…………Sublime Determinations………Manifestations And Realizations…………Moment………By…….And To……………..Moment…………..The Sweetness Of A Silent Mist On A Late Afternoon…….The Joy Of Sound…….Thunder, Wind In The Leaves, Calls In The Night………One’s Own Breath………………….The Constancy of Exchange……The Constancy Of Idea And Dialogue………….The Constant Passing Of Energy And Idea Between One………And The Other…………….The Richness Of Reciprocal Experience…….And Nature’s Consciousness Is One’s Own……………
