iphone art

I created this image which I call "iphoneEYE" - it is more like my inner artistic eye, I created this image and the other posted on Facebook, but the original was this black & white line drawing from Brushes on my iphone.

I love line drawings like this, you can see so many things, you can see a stain glassed piece, a figure, a pumpkin in the garden.

Jim's Challenge

My friend Jim Frederick, posted this photo of a hat on the ground and challenged me to make art from it. Below are two of my tributes to this. To honor, I created this Sailboat. I am sure his father would love it.

I also created this image, abstract but still containing the hat. In a way it is the mind's eye and what a computer allows an artist to create.

ARt aNd cOPy

I created this image from an image that I created on my iphone while I awaited for the movie "Art and Copy" to be shown at the River Oaks Theatre in Houston, TX. The movie was presented by the AAF-Houston .
The movie was amazing. It was perfectly timed and reminded what I do as an artist. communicate. Words, Images are my tools.
To see what the image was before I modified it, visit my facebook profile.

I created this image of the US Flag based on an image I took off the television showing the masses of people at the inauguration of President Obama. Lately voices of dissent against the President have become very organized, very vocal. While these voices have found media channels to become loud and angry... they are hardly worth all the attention the media is giving them, I guess that is important, since they are in the minority. Where are the polls that ask Americans what they think of rude outbursts, where are the coverage of uncovering lies of the bankers, the insurance companies, where is the outrage? In most cases they are voices of passion, not facts. The voices are loud and crying out for an answer, and the answer they want of course is not the answer of wanting dialog, discussion, or even debate but just wanting it their way. Many of these voices are ignorant. Surprising ignorant. Followers of radical radio catalysts, that make money off these listeners and followers. They say lies (even after proven wrong) and spread them and hold them up as fact. If this is the price of FREEDOM, then so be it. But we must fight ignorance in the media with factual reports and now allow facts and reality to become distorted. That becomes a hard thing to do. We have the separation of Church & State for that very reason. 200 years ago --- Church was what the Internet is today --- a place where people gathered, they listened, they were galvanized, they acted. In a way maybe we should have a separation of NEWS (as long as it is fact based and unbiased) and MEDIA, PROPAGANDA, AND SOAP BOXING, GRAND STANDING. Where is Walter Cronkite when you need him.

Sitting home
My computer
The TV
Creating digital images
from painted memories
I wonder what my mind
is trying to say.

Shark Stone

I was presented with this photo taken by Michael W. Kennedy. He sent it to his wife and said - "this reminds me of a "Billy" picture, maybe we should send it to him and see what he can do with it." Well that struck me as a challenge. I created this image from that image and of course to honor not only their marriage and companionship, but their love of sharks! I used the image they provided to create this underwater image.
