I want to thank everyone for their generosity in helping me achieve my goal of getting enough prints for my show. I now have 16 prints and am busy putting together mattes and frames for them. I so appreciate everyone's contributions to the cause. Again, thanks so much! I will keep making compelling images so keep stopping by for a look or two! Love you all! Love your art! My show went over well this weekend! Fractals made a big splash in Ocean Springs, Mississippi!

From time to time I am known to think heavy thoughts.  One thing I have been thinking of, as an abstract artist, is this:  What constitutes the foundation of an art consciousness.  What I mean here is simple.  How do we "perceive" the artful and how do we know it is really art as opposed to a "semblance of art". So often there has been a chasm between artists who work with traditional mediums producing traditional images as opposed to those who utilize non-traditional mediums producing non-traditional images.  I frequently hear that fractal art is a misnomer.  I even hear it in my own head!  I question that perception as I perceive great beauty and a sense of the human spirit in my art and the art of many other fractal artists. So my question is this: What do others think of fractal art and how do you think it satisfies the human soul as an artform or not? Please answer this question below in the comments section.

I have been an artist since I was a young boy. Now I am a senior who has come back to his love. For many years I was a psychologist and also an artist and designer of software interfaces. It has been a wonderful life and now I am able to do artwork each and every moment and each and everyday. It is wonderful. The only thing is I am 100% disabled and live on a very limited income. So all I really have are my family and my art. Who could be wealthier!

I would tell any artist to follow their muse and work hard to be a working artist. Do not let people discourage you. Work hard to develop the skills and talent you need to be in demand. That means developing business skills. I wish you all well! If you like my artwork, and can afford it, please consider giving me some points. I would greatly appreciate it! I am disabled now and I live on a very small income. I cannot work. Anything you can do to help me make prints of my work to show I would appreciate it!
