Another new one. Thinking about the big bang. Occurs to me that it happened in absolute silence since there was no one there to hear it. Strictly speaking there wasn't even silence. That's something we invented. Of course, now we can hear the big bang as noise picked up by a satellite. Which is interesting. The sound of creation is noise. Anyway, this is the kind of stuff that sometimes passes through my mind when I make these pictures. The moral of this story is: when thinking of the beginning (or any of the other "big questions") it's best to keep an open mind. Otherwise, you'll be pretending to know what you don't. And you'll miss out on some interesting thoughts and experiences.

Nobody Knows, 2014. Digital painting. Size variable.

Something I just finished. As often happens with my work, a specific person came to mind as the picture began to take form. In this case my late father, Edwin, who was the person who got me started on this crazy path called Art. He was not given to wasting words...

April Song (in memory of my father). Digital painting. Size variable.
Trying out a new format. This image and Dragon (see below) make use of some new capabilities I just discovered in the fractal generating software I've been using: Fractal Domains. These new images are meant to be printed at 80 inches wide on a translucent substrate to enable backlighting.

Out of Nowhere. Digital Painting. Dimensions variable (up to 80 inches wide).

Two from a new series of 8 point stars. These are simulations of what the images would look like projected on a wall mounted sculpture.
