Speaking of Minimalism…..

Skeleton Leaf #7 Many of the folks who follow me, or are familiar with my work, are well aware of my fondness for minimalism in my images.

Art and Isolation….

Well, it's been quite a while since my last blogpost. It certainly has ben a difficult summer. Like many other artists, I have struggled to keep motivated and inspired.

Well, here's a bonus post for this week. I recently entered this image into a gallery exhibit and it was accepted. Needless to say I am quite proud. So let me talk for just a moment about the image.
