I have joined a New Fine Art Gallery

The Untapped Source ~ Fine Art Gallery.

I am pleased to announce that I have been accepted into the wonderful Fine Art Gallery above. It will take me 2 to 3 weeks to upload the pieces I want display and offer for sale there. If you have time, please take a look.

Circlet ~ Abstract

Designed after the medieval Circlet women used to wear, this golden Abstract was created to delight the eye. I used Apo with my previous MA, with a few number adjustments and additions.

Turkish Rug ~ Abstract


Following my fabric theme, I created another Julian which is a slight variation of my last. A design you might see in a fine Turkish Rug.

Tabby on Sofa WIP 10

The first and second layers of color are finally done on the Sofa. Now I just have to decide to antique the sofa or leave it bright like it is.
I am still working on the first of the inner stripes and just about to the last part of the Tabby's back leg.
Started adding some very light shading washes to her belly, back leg and the toy she is laying next too.
As I work on the light areas , so I do not get muddy washes, I normally remove my pencil marks before I start to paint. So it requires me to remember the contours of her body.


Another close up to show some of the detail that has been applied so far. Can see the first wash of color of the toy on the bottom of the photo and have applied a very light wash on the white parts of her face. Most white you see, isn't just plain white...but varying shades of this color.
Then there is the first inking of the inner stripes, there are millions of them.
This Close up will also show you why it takes so long for me to do these paintings.

Fantastic ~ Abstract

Sections of sky and clouds ribbon ed out like a Fan, using AP2.09 and my Mathematical algorithms.

Tabby on Sofa WIP 9

I am almost done with the back of the Sofa, just a little to do on the right hand edge. So I have started on the first layering of ink with the inner stripes on the Tabby's coat. You can see a bit of the high detail in the close up photo.
Once I have the first layer of ink in these area's done, I will go back and do about 3 more and then add washes of color where needed.

Golden Medallion ~ Abstract

Working off my previous fractal algorithms, I have created this piece I call, Golden Medallion. Little off center, not quite perfect, like a medallion or coin would be when found with sunken treasure.

Thatched Barn of Old ~ An older Painting.

I have decided to post a few of my older pieces of Art and this is one of them.
Have always dreamed of having a nice barn for my animals and I to enjoy. I love Thatched roofs. In my many doodles of barns that I have done, I came up with this one. My Dream Barn.
This is a Pen and Ink with a watercolor pencil wash done in 2007.

Playing with Paintings



I have been playing with a few of my paintings, as I did not like the coloring or what not.
Came up with this and I personally like this one better this way.

Pirouette ~ Abstract

Here is something wild and fun, spinning over and over upon itself, like a whirl of feathers.

Tabby on Sofa WIP 8

Completed a lot more of the Sofa, so about halfway done and just started working some color in and around the Tabby's face.

Playing with Photographs again

Have been playing with some of my photographs again. Here are the results.

Looking at this one large on my screen,, I like it. But small size... not so much.


Very dark storm clouds in the background, a spotlight of sunshine on the next hills over and shades of dark near me and the trees near my house.


A bright rainbow shinning despite the dark and stormy sky, almost like it is growing out of the trees.

Julian ~ Almost

I have been working very hard to master a Grand Julian... using the same base as my previous fractals of this type of design, using my own Math Algorithms. Am sort'a getting there but not where I want to be quite yet. So everyone gets to see my trials. VBG
This piece truely looks better when seen Big!
Right now I am just calling it a Julian but sure would not mind folks giving me ideas on a name!

Persia ~ Abstract


This beauty was created by using my own Math Algorithms with AP3D. The Deep blues embellished with gold, helped give me this Art work it’s name. Best seen large to see all the colorful detail.


Calendars for Sale !

A great way to collect a number of beautiful Art that you can enjoy throughout the year.

Tabby on Sofa ~ WIP 7

Still working on the Sofa, not only adding the first color in places, but going back over other area's already started to add some definition. Also worked in the Tabby's nose and inner ears just a little bit.

Close up of the end of the sofa and the Tabby's head.
Lighting hasn't been the greatest, hence the slightly fuzzy photos.

Woven Tapestry ~ Abstract


Render of, 5 days, 2 hours and 56 minutes is what it took to get this level of detail.
Adding to that.. the power outage and the computer that black screened, making me start the render over mid way, twice. Thank goodness I save my parameters.


A close up of this creation.

Tabby on Sofa ~ WIP 6

Still working on the sofa. The amount of color on the thing is staggering. Normally I get the first layer of color on, then go back and do more detail. However, I wanted to work on the front of the sofa a little more, where the piping is tucked in, to add more definition.

Sea Star ~ Abstract

My computer took two full days non stop to render this creation of mine. It is based on the last fractal I did, with some added numbers and adjustments. In the close up shot you can see the extensive detail. At a distance I think it looks something like an Abstract Sea Star but close up, looks like woven fabric.

This is one creation that would really look best large.
Below is another close up, this time with a tonal change. Looks more Holiday like this way.

Fishscales, Fabric or ? ~ Abstract

A Close up of this Abstract.


I based this fractal abstract off some of my previous works, using my own mathematical algorithms.
Close up my DH thinks it looks like a Synthetic Harvest.
Me.. I am thinking on the lines of fish scales or woven fabric.
What do you think?
