Creativity Knows No Bounds...unless no one sees

Green Infusion

Take a walk with me my friend, to an unknown place that looks so familiar....perhaps the place is from a dream or another time....

No Left Turn

...for things are not always as they seem. Often there's a deeper underlying meaning, or not....

Berry Sweet the frosted window pane which projected light and beautiful shapes in the early morning sun, shapes that hinted of a former lovers face. Tears soon erased the beautiful face, as the sun rose above the horizon...

Mask of Humanity a funk one night sitting in a deep indigo room, I watched as the sun rose and the walls soon bleached white with light. A day I watched as the shadows moved around the perimiter of the room until the room became dark and then a deep indigo blue again....a day, a year, a lifetime.

Perception & Reality

Perception and memory is multi-dimensional, so I tried to reinterpret some static images I took to create the illusion of time, movement and dimension....

Butterfly Dreams

I saw a butterfly last night in my dreams.

She danced and glided around me, through wispy veils of bright sunlight

and summer flowers glowing.

How sad to awaken.

Unlocking the mysteries of the universe

In nature, we discover many of the mysteries of the universe unveiled right before our eyes... ~Yasu 9-13

Leaf and Moon on Blue Pond

Autumn always seems to bring out the melancholy in me. Especially, as I watch the leaves changing and falling and then drifting away in the moonlit pond. The changing of sunlight to moonlight... Reflections of my life Oh how they fill my eyes ...~Excerpt from song; "Reflections of My Life" ~Marmalade

"Pollination" 18 x 24 acrylic on canvas

Pollination is a struggle for survival for a plant. It's a moment when a plant or tree puts forth much of it's energy stores into producing the elements to assure the next generation of it's species. As digital cameras and computers have allowed me to enter the amazing world of plants and flowers close-up, I'm convinced more than ever, that with every budding and pollinating flower; a new universe for the most part unseen by our eyes... is evolving.

Utica....looking past the potholes

Like a bug looking up through myopic eyes, or a birds eye view from high atop Val Bialas, I try to look around or not see the streets so full of potholes,the boarded up homes and the vacant commercial buildings. images from Utica; "A Bug's Eye View"

Black & White; Less is More-More or Less

I thought this would be a good month to share some of my black and white images with you this January. Seemed appropriate after the holidays and now knee deep in the New Year and a snowy upstate winter (at least as of this week)

Like sands through the hourglass....

Even when I was 8 years old I remember thinking years ago, while listening to the start of my Mom's favorite soap opera; "Days of Our Lives" that life was kinda like that hourglass. That moments come and go like those sands in the hourglass, and elusively pass into our memories. Memories that seem to stay with you whether they be good or bad, usually burn themselves into the recesses of our minds because they have an emotional tag of some sort attached. I will post a few more images through Oct. and November as this seems to be a very reflective time of year. Hope you enjoy them and perhaps they bring back some special memories of your own.

What is the reality of what we really see, or feel, or sense....

While watching a compelling episode of Morgan Freeman's "Into the Wormhole" I was thorughly engrossed in his compelling program about scientists who firmly believe there are dimensions and spheres that though they may not be visible, are nevertheless still there. Places where possibly our twin or triplet operates in an unseen dimension of space and time etc etc. A regular modern day theory that would leave the likes of Rod Serling or Carl Sagan titillated.....well anyway......I believe we look directly into the eyes of our maker and into the wide open universe at times, when we look into nature. So thus inspired, I share with you a few of my interpretations
