Anything, visible or invisible, may be contemplated. However, some things tend to draw the contemplative eye more closely than others. My artwork, and this website, are created with this in mind, out of a meditative intention for all viewers. You will find here both visual work and poetry. It is not a commercial site, the ubiquitous, undismissable, shopping cart not withstanding. My intention is a portfolio site, as well as a forum for possible discussion.
Below is the cover of my latest book, called Square Mandalas, which can be viewed in detail at the publisher: https://www.blurb.com/b/10891113-square-mandalas
On this page you may see: a pencil drawing on graph paper, a Square Mandala, and examples of two new series: the ten inch square mandala and the Overspray series. Also featured are an entry from my "New Remnants" series. You will find these under New Work, and examples of earlier work, in the Gallery of Visual Art. The header is from my "Feather" sketchbook, more of which can be found under "Themed Sketchbooks."
These new drawings on graph paper are further explorations in symmetry.
"Keep your eyes clean and your ears quiet and your mind serene. Breathe God's air. Work, if you can, under his sky."
Thomas Merton New Seeds of Contemplation
"Symmetry principles are characterized by a quietude, a stillness that is somehow beyond the bustling world; yet, in one way or another, they are almost always involved with transformation, disturbance, or movement." - David Wade Symmetry, the Ordering Principle
