I am happy to present to you today my second annual Christmas Card Design. It is not very well known that Salvador Dali created several Christmas cards, mostly by commission, but they are beautifully designed and executed. To carry on the tradition I present to you this years design. A fanciful design of fractals and fish to offer a flow to the season as well as have the viewer get insight into the fluid notions of my thought.
To learn more about this card, and to see last years design visit the cards page on my website here;\www.louismarkoya.com/xmas2018
Wishing each of you a happy and healthy holiday as well as a creative year ahead. I will hope you follow my work as new and exciting things loom in the not so distant future.
I am happy today to introduce my latest work
"The Simultaneous Ecstacy of Feeling both Everything and Nothing"
Oil on Canvas 30"x48" March 2018
Life and living in this world holds many mysteries. Being rational beings individuals are conflicted as to being connected to heaven, or earth. The ultimate goal being present and experiencing them both. Here my figure is embraced by the skeletal fractal figure which acts as both the cupola of heaven and the roots to earth. To learn more about her and the ties to Nietzsche in this painting visit its web page at

A personal note of thanks to Gary Webb for generously sharing his parameters from which the original fractal was derived.
