The third portfolio. What the dog saw. She sees a lot. She investigates a lot. She takes me on long walks. Even when I don’t feel like it. That’s good. For both of us. She keeps my hurting parts moving, which according to that silly television commercial “a body in motion stays in motion.”  Something […]


The second phase. Since my body hurt, I decided to stimulate my mind. I started experimenting with layering. And, blending. Mixing. Matching. Aside from making the original image — the base layer, I called it — everything was assembled in the computer. Or, iPhone. Or, iPad. These pictures are, in effect, digital art. Digital art […]

Even when you cross the Causeway to the Northshore the weather cools down and acts a little — well, wintry. After a couple of days […]


I know what I said. I meant it. But, it seems that I kind of like posting here. After six years of doing it daily, its workflow fits nicely into my daily workflow.  That said, I’m still moving into my planned direction.
