This was one of my first fractal/abstract works. I was practicing how to make the jeweled orbs and metallic filigree. I think the jewel turned out pretty well, but the filigree was still a bit rough around the edges. I chose the title because I like the word “dusky” as well as the the dark grey/blue/purple color it sometimes signifies. A few months later when I got a grey kitten I named him “Dusky” too.

Just a simple fractal that I thought looked like a sheaf of harvested grain. Or you might see one or more faces in it - I guess it depends on your imagination! This was one of my early fractal designs, in this case with very little editing. It was created with the Apophysis fractal flame creater/editor.

This ornate spiral pattern came from the XaoS fractal zooming program, and I added the gold overlay and rubies. How any gems do you think there are?

How did the bridge break? Is he responsible? Can it be repaired - or is there another way over? Does he even really want to get to the other side? Is the sun rising or setting on the other side? This piece lends itself to many interpretations - and raises many questions.

“The blue rose means mystery. An appreciation for the enigmatic, the inexplicable is expressed by the blue rose. A tantalizing vision that cannot be totally pinned down, a mystery that cannot be fully unraveled is the blue rose. A person who receives the blue rose is the subject of much speculation and thought. A complex personality that does not allow easy interpretation is what the blue rose indicates.”
“Due to the absence in nature of blue roses they traditionally signify a mystery, or attaining the impossible, or never ending quest for the impossible. They are believed to be able to grant the owner youth or grant wishes..”
This was my first “professional” image created with Vue software. I had tried out the beginner versions of the software (with all the limitations such as size and watermarks that come with that type of software) and decided I wanted to invest in learning this program and making extensive use of it in my future artwork.

The celestial orchard where stars and moons are grown. Created entirely in Paint Shop Pro. I'd had the idea for this image in my mind for a while, and finally got around to making it. I got a lot of practice with the pen tool, and these tree shapes might show up again.

This design is in the Art Deco style popular in the early 1900s. I came across a lot of stained-glass designs in my researches, so I decided to try one with the popular sun motif. I had fun picking textures from various Apophysis and Xaos renders, some of which have been sitting on my computer for months or even years. There are bits of Eyes of the Storms, Waltz of the Snowflakes, and Chaos Tie-Dyed in there, as well as others that have never seen the light of day.

I originally made this nice chilly abstract to start out 2012.

This is the final and most “traditional” of my seasonal snow globe scenes. This is what the landscape around here looked like a week ago. Today was 75° F, so this helps me remember it is still winter out there!
