“Orange Pollen”

Walking in my neighborhood after a storm in June, I found the remnants of orange pollen, washed from a tree above.  This informed the color-scheme for a series of artomat.org pieces called “Orange Pollen”.  Shown here are the 100 pieces (2.125″ x 3.25″) together in the original painting, an individual piece in my hand, and the photo of the orange pollen on the ground.

“Seaweed Red and Brown”

New edition of 100 art-o-mat.org paintings — bottom photo shows them before separation into 100 cigarette-box sized paintings.  They are “Seaweed red and brown”, a title/theme taken from the ending of “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T. S. Eliott:

” I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each…

I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.”

“When the wind blows the water white and black” — T. S. Eliot

New Art-o-Mat series: “Meteor Shower”

100 new art-o-mat pieces I just finished entitled “Meteor Shower”, inspired by meteor-generated light streaks I’ve seen while at high altitude (where the skies are very clear) above the mountains around Santa Fe.  These measure 2 1/8″ x 3 1/4″ x 7/8″ — size of a pack of cigarettes, and will be vended ($5 each) out of re-purposed cigarette vending machines.  See: http://www.artomat.org/ .
