    Poem in Response

    After reading “Golden Pink Gone“, written by the talented and lovely Arizonian poetess, Michele Lee Sefton – wherein her happiness stems from an admiration of beauty and peacefulness (rather than the frivolous), sharing photographs of local sights – I was inspired to write this poem…

    The time you take to share
    With steady gait, to reminisce
    A beauty that’s alive
    Your town, in hues of golden bliss

    Water with wrinkles
    Natural beauty reflects
    Gems tumbled in time

    Poem in Response

    Having read “Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright” by a talented poetess and dear friend from California, Cindy Georgakas – wherein she interweaves beautiful imagery with hopeful, endearing assurances – I was inspired to write this poem…

    She sloshes in galoshes
    Wading ankle-deep into memories

    Fond reflections splashed with love
    Buoy her spirits, like a summer breeze

  • Abstract Reflections

    Abstract Reflections

    What happens when you position a small camera inside a bucket of glass marbles, add light, take a picture, and, finally, tweak the result in Photoshop? That’s a good question, and I have no idea…that isn’t what this is.

    Rather, I used Bryce & Affinity Photo creative software, situating digital glass and metallic spheres inside a larger, hollow and reflective sphere, adding colored lights and a camera, then rotating to select a view.

    Next, I added this design to several print on demand shops, which brings me to the present. You can now discover a variety of cool prints, gift & apparel items when visiting the following shops –

  • Abstract Macro Fractal

    I created this digital artwork using Bryce and Affinity Photo creative software. It’s based on a fractal design, which was imported as a black and white jpeg into three dimensional space.

    Poem in Response

    After reading “Just Simple Pleasures for Today“, written by a dear friend & southern poetess, Kym Gordon Moore – wherein she shares her positivity with a morning cup of gratitude – I was inspired to write this short poem in response…

    From a fountain that flows
    Streaming words which are wise
    Her heartfelt reflections
    Penned with love, no surprise
