  1. WOW Ron! Today I am about to begin a large canvas for my abstract expressionist class…..these photos really got me in the proper frame of mind.
    So Jackson Pollack – so gorgeous – so loose – thanks!

    • Jackson Pollack’s work was fractal, imperfect repetition. So are these. The trick is to bring it out by manipulating the colors. Glad you like it.

    • Thank you John. It is looking like the Dagoba planet here.

  4. Only once been in Houston and they have already named a park after me …. Unfortunately with a spelling error; my name has only 1 ‘n’ at the end. Can you please let them know? Thanks. :D ;)

    These are beautiful … especially, for me, Number 5

    • #5 is the reflection of a tony high rise apartment building.

  8. These are great! I especially love #5. :)

    • That’s interesting because it is the least radical of the 5. I am considering ways to do 2,3, and 4 with a more restricted color palate. Well, I have to make that up.

      March 16, 2014 at 8:49 pm

      • Perhaps that’s why I prefer 5. It has a more restful feel. I love the creativity though!

        March 16, 2014 at 8:51 pm

        • #5 is not as totally abstract as the others, it does look a bit like the reflection of a high rise. There are a lot of possible ways to manipulate color, and I have only scratched the surface.

        • It does. I’ll be anxious to see what you do with these! It’s so much fun looking at images like this.

        • Look at the “Reflections” menu button in the header. It is all experimental for me, especially without any formal art training.

        • I was looking at them earlier. They are nice. After a quick review again, I’m attracted to Tree of Life a lot as well as parking lot puddle. It’s fun to try new things! Time to put the computer away. I think I’m addicted to this! Have a nice evening :)

  13. Absolutely wonderful abstracts! :)

    March 18, 2014 at 9:10 am

  14. Fascinating blog you have here. What a wide range of subjects, I’ve just enjoyed my visit immensely! If you don’t sell your work in galleries, you should!

    March 18, 2014 at 10:01 am

    • I am considering going to the effort to sell some prints primarily for the recognition, and not really for the money.

      March 18, 2014 at 11:07 am

      • Some websites I’ve seen have the ability to purchase prints; that would be another aspect to explore and set up if you’re up for the learning curve!

        • I am more interested in seeing my work hanging somewhere.
