For a Few Fractals…

Greetings, people, one and all…

I apologize for the delay in preparing and posting this next batch of fractals… things have been a bit overwhelming, of late. I am now a person without a vehicle, with only so-so public transportation. Yes, I sold my van, as was the plan, to a very nice couple who even let me maintain possession until they had actually sold their own car, so they didn’t have to deal with two vehicles, in a one parking spot condo downtown. So that was most kind.

In other news, my dear BIL, the Harley Guy decided to quit undergoing dialysis, its benefits were no longer worth its downs, for him. He learned that he would not be allowed back on the transplant list, so he (they) made a very courageous decision. After stopping dialysis, doctors usually say a patient has 5 to 12 days left. It was, in fact, a rapid decline and he died peacefully at home about 7 – 8 days after stopping dialysis.

My sister is a very strong woman, with lots of love and support, so hopefully she will feel this to be the relief I’m sure Harley Guy did. It was only 25 – 30 years ago that she donated one of her kidneys to Harley Guy. It was a very strong kidney and it worked out quite well for him all these years. But first, she’ll need to deal with the aloneness. They’d been together for so long they were like Siamese twins. RIP Harley Guy.

To both Harley Guy and Virgo Gal, may your days and nights be full of peace and free from pain…

So, with a tune about moving on and some fractals, I dedicate this post to HG and VG! I love you.

This been so much fun, I may have forgotten to mention my theme – it is fractals, fractal art, everything fractal up to and including my new book Fractal Dreams! Have a look around my pages and such to see lots more fractals. Also, every Friday I post a FridayFractalFeature (fff, for short) for all to enjoy! Thanks for stopping by and engaging in the A to Z 2013 Challenge! This is my FIRST ever, so I’m pretty excited! So every day I posted a fractal whose title starts with the letter of the day… and perhaps other things fractal related.

X is for….

XaoS is an interactive fractal zoomer program. It allows the user to continuously zoom in or out of a fractal in real-time.

XaoS is licenced under GPL. The program is cross-platform, and is available for a variety of operating systems.
I know there’s a lot more to Xaos, but I really don’t understand it. I do know Xaos is a way of connecting properties of various transforms in a fractal to create different aspects of interaction and color.
the fractal for X is: XAOS AND I

“5 Stars

I have been waiting for Fractal Dreams to be published so I could have my very own book with Janet’s artwork. I never heard of fractals until I visited her blog and I was absolutely in awe of the art she creates. I look forward to seeing all her new pieces, like a kid at Christmas, and at first I am taken in by the colors and try to follow where the design goes, similar to getting lost in another world. I was so excited to see Janet put her art in a book and very pleased with how it turned out. She does an excellent job explaining what a fractal is in terms that I was able to understand even though I am not much of a math person, and going through a wonderful selection of designs and discussing different effects and areas of each. I have seen many fractals since she first introduced me to them, and Janet’s still are some of the most striking and beautiful to me. In addition, she gives them titles that fit the design so well that you instantly see it. Her excitement about her art is infectious and I did try it once but nothing came close to what amazed me about Janet’s art, so I am happy to be a huge fan and visit her sites where her art is featured and now to have a book of my own. The colors, shapes, design and Janet’s enthusiasm make Fractal Dreams one of the books on my books I treasure most shelf.”

FREE E-COPY IF YOU’LL REVIEW IT
NOW, I can offer you, in exchange for you writing a review and posting it on the Redmund Pro website Review Page http://redmundpro.com/book-store/review-form/ a FREE e-copy of FRACTAL DREAMS. Just email me at kppput@yahoo.com and I’ll send you a promo code to redeem for a free e-edition. I only have a few, so first come first served, as they say!!!

Of course, I certainly recommend the print version, when it becomes available. That way you can show all your friends (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)! The price will only be $10 for more than 80 images, stuff about me, comments from some wonderful fans, and a wonderful image on which I’ve written a (hopefully) good definition of a fractal.

So, the waiting is finally over… and well worth the wait!!!

And, not to worry, if it is an e-version you want, you can get one for only $3.00 if you choose not to trade for a review, or miss the opportunity for some reason. Again, if I were you, I might hold out for the print edition (FULL COLOR 9″x6″). On second thought, I’d probably get a few of each, for gifts!!! (Lots of folks check out the e-version, first to see if the print version is worth the measly $10 – check it out!! I assure you, the print version will be WELL worth it!!!)

So I MUST thank you all for your continued support and kind words, without which, I don’t think I’d have had the courage to publish the book in the first place!!!
And a big THANK YOU to all who contributed in any way to bringing this book to reality!!!

WHAT? Am I EXCITED?
Yeah, maybe just a LITTLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:)

PS: There are several other books on the site for your pleasure, as well. There are two memoirs, “Killing Us Softly” by Red Dwyer and “Girl in the Iron Lung” by Gail Thornton, both of which I have read. I HIGHLY recommend BOTH!!!
There is Lizzie C’s “A Month of Mental Moments”, just like in her blog Running Naked with Scissors!
There are a few books of poetry that will definitely get you thinking. And a few fiction books, as well. One of these fiction books, “Jaberweill Hunt” has one of my fractals (Magic Carpet Parking Lot) on the cover with some extra artwork by Lizzie!
I tell you what – I plan to buy/read all of these books I haven’t yet read. And maybe even get some for gifts too!

WE WILL SHORTLY RETURN YOU TO YOUR REGULAR PROGRAMMING (FRIDAY FRACTAL FEATURE). Thank you for watching/listening to/reading this SPECIAL REPORT from Buddhakat Designs!!!

FineArtsAmerica: Buddhakat’s latest gallery – WITH a bio pic!!

Hi everybody…

I’ve got a couple things to talk about, today. There’s still some good tunes, some great fractals  ;) , but I’d like to share a couple things of interest, just for today…

First up, here’s a shameless promo for my brother’s Improv Comedy Club upcoming events, including a FREE IMPROV WORKSHOP. Do you Live in the Orlando area? Have you always wanted to be quicker on your feet when talking with friends, or even strangers? Improv is the way to go! Learning how to perform improv helps your brain take you to that place where you are quick and clever and witty and the life of the party!!!
Not only that, at their Comedy Club, if you book a show for an occasion like a birthday, wedding anniversary or the like, they will perform an improv set based on the events in the life of the celebratees. It’s loads of fun.
Even if you just want to catch a funny show, this group has been entertaining the Orlando area for some 35 or more years. They really ARE great. Here’s a link to the SAK Comedy Lab Newsletter. If you’re ever in Orlando and you have had your fill of the big Disney thingy, give these folks a try!! In fact, David (my brother) even wrote, directed and performed in one the of skits that plays for you while you wait in line for the JAWS ride. (That’s right – the one at Disney!)

OK, next item on the agenda today is the FractalFreaksForum. Some of us at DA have decided to work together in the interest of selling our art, promoting it, learning how and where and who are your friends and your not so much friends. We’ve only been in operation for a few weeks, but we already have a ton of topics like our founder’s new website is up and running Dsynegrafix is its name and it’s really cool.
I’ve already learned a lot about where to find the cheapest but quality places to buy canvases of my own work for one to one selling, and such. And I’ve found lots of websites that are really a great deal for the artist to display and sell their wares, from FAA to our very own DA.
Learning things at light speed, I’ve already posted some of my work to 2 new places and bulked up my Buddhakat’s Dazzling Zazzle Shoppe. AND, created a FB Fan Page for my Buddhakat Designs. So, I’m going to add a couple pages to and share the love on this blog o’ mine.

So, I’m going to create a page with links to  my friends from the forum. Having joined this forum, I’ve learned the benefit of working together as opposed to being so competitive that we have to learn everything ourselves, and sometimes the hard way. Instead we’re sharing info with a like minded group of others who have maybe already checked out that website, or tried that group of art fairs, or whatever… But, I want to include YOU too. So, what I’m looking for is your artist URL, band name and website url, newest book and link to its amazon page, Goodreads url, etc. With a small thumbnail image and a brief description, if necessary.

Rather than limit it to just that small group of artists, hopefully it will grow into a grand resource page of any and all new/indie / starving artists of any genre. So, if you have a website that showcases your art, be it visual, poetry, or even a Goodreads webite for yourself, let me know the link and what it is. I’ll post it on my “Starving Artists” Page (a working title – needs work, for sure!), which is sort of already in action with my nephew’s band website.

In addition, I’m adding a page dedicated to my own work and the various places you can find it, with little thumbs of some of the fractals you have seen, some not, and even, maybe some digital art that is not even fractal based. I’m learning the ins and outs of self promotion, as an independent artist.

OK, then… enough chatter… let’s get ON with it – after all, this is FRIDAY, time for a FRACTAL FEATURE..

Hope you have time to check out all my links… if not in one sitting, maybe two or three (some good music to bring you back)!!!     ;)

Soooooo, have a sweet weekend… I’m off to throw down a few drinks with the girls, two of whom are the Libra birthday girls I bespoke of in an earlier post…
We’re like the older crowd now, looking for the early bird dinner specials? Only we look for the early bird happy hours!!!

We’re actually going to Joe Senser’s place, for those of you not in the know, Joe’s a MN ex-jock whose wifey got herself in a little hit-and-run-somebody-died trouble back in summer last… We think he needs our $$$$, so we’re gonna help him out by hitting happy hour at maybe the last of his popular restaurants, which seem to be disappearing/closing with magical frequency.

Soooo.. here’s to ya…….CHEERS!!!!

BIG love and BIG hugs…
