Life’s little irritations

 

 

All those things that bump up your blood pressure just that bit higher.

UK General Election June 2017

 

Today is voting day. It’s time to choose the destiny of this country for the next five years. Make an effort, go to your polling station and have your say. And yes, some politicians will certainly feel rejected after today.

Double Spiral Zoom – Sacred Geometry

 

This animation resembles the actual artwork more than the other manipulations I’ve created from this piece. The logarithmic spirals that emanate from the center allow me to smoothly animate this mixed media piece. The original piece was created using Pencil, Ink, and colored pencils.

Metatron’s Cube: Zoom – Sacred Geometry

 

When animating my pieces I always get new ideas and new perspectives. I had the idea to use the new zooming method I used on the last few gifs and apply it to my “Metatron’s Cube” painting. The original is 16” x 20” ink, acrylic, and colored pencil on paper. Check out my website for my new gallery of paintings!

Sunflower Burst: Zoom 1 – Sacred Geometry

 

I used my original piece “Purple Sunflower Burst” to make this gif. I first established the golden ratio spiral pattern in pencil then I added ink. After that I painted with acrylic in many thin layers called glazes. This infinite zoom shows the multiple levels of spirals that can be interpreted when the spheres are arranged to approximate the golden ratio.
