Balls Will Be Balls

Balls! I painted more balls in my mural painting career than any other single item.  Mostly I've painted sports balls in boy's bedrooms — stacks of them in unlikely places; bowling balls about to roll off of door frames, balls the size of marbles, baseballs with stitching, autographed basketballs, soccer, golf and ping pong balls.  Baby, you've got balls!

When I first saw Jock Cooper's artwork I was drawn to his computer generated images with Fibonacci swirls and a bold use of color.  Once we became friends, we both wondered how a painter would execute the essence of what math equations had done for him via a software program.  I assigned myself the challenge.  

This is another in a series of fractal-like paintings I made during this particular quest. I hope you enjoy the series while I work on a few more house portraits.

I always appreciate your visits.

Nearly! Almost!

My peonies are nearly, almost a day away from bursting into the plant world's version of tutus!  I'm so excited to have them at my disposal—to look at, photograph and to bury my nose in.  I love the fragrance of peonies.

When I shot the photo for this painting, a few hours ago, the background was the barbecue grill.  I added a seldom-used color to my palette and find it pleasing with the necessary greens and reds.  It's simply called Green Blue. 

Thank you for looking at my art today.
