So, it seems to be taking a little longer than I thought to transition into another sort of fractal delivery, possibly expanding into digital (not fractal) art…

Just because I’m as slow as molasses in January, I can’t, dasn’t make you wait a moment longer… I am suffering from fractal withdrawal, and I expect there may be more of that going on out there…

So, simple and sure, here, for you, a few fractals, lest you think I stepped over to the dark side and left you in the agony of anticipation…

Please enjoy these, and hopefully a wonderful, sunny holiday weekend (not here, that’s for sure – our week of rain + has already started) too!

Much love, as I continue to balance off grid life with my cyber soul, wondering if you’ll still be with me when/if I finally get things like I want them!

I left the tunes to you all this weekend too, so the music you get will be tailored to your own specific plans… after all, silence is, at times, nice too!

Missed you all last week, indeed I did!!

HUGS GALORE!!!

Day 13 of the April 2013 A to Z Challenge…

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 will post a fractal whose title starts with the letter of the day… and perhaps other things fractal related. Some very good A to Z post on writing at M3 Blog

M is for….
MANDELBROT – Benoit B Mandelbrot (November 20, 1924 – October 14, 2010), that is. I also spoke of him in B because he is worth many, many references. He is pretty much considered the father (or is it grandfather?) of fractals. Due to his pursuit of the area of math that has turned into fractal geometry and considering he coined the word fractal, he’s quite the forefather.  There is a joke about his name, Benoit B. Mandelbrot. It is, “what does the B stand for in Benoit B. Mandelbrot?” Congratulations if you got it without an explanation. Not many will (even I had to ask, don’t feel bad). The answer is immediately funny and appropriate if you know that a fractal, in short, is a self similar shape or form that is recursive (repeats) no matter how far you zoom into it. (See also T is for… for another word that refers to this very property *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*.)
MOONHIGH, MARGOT 1942, MARTHIG, MARIO837 – some awesome fractalists I’ve met on DeviantArt.
Mandelbulb3D (MB3D) – is another FREE fractal generating and rendering application that seems to have taken the fractal world by storm. With it, fractalists are able to create images, 3D images, as have never before been produced. They are, of course, based on fractal math, but apparently MB3D is quite user friendly. I have ddown;oaded it, but have not tried it yet. It seems to become quite addictive almost immediately, so I don’t want to forsake all other apps at this time. I have put MB3D on hold in my arsenal for a while.
the fractal for M is: MOZAMBIQUE

Mozambique is in my book, Fractal Dreams, which is available exclusively at RedmundPro.

One Fine Fractal Friday…

I’m probably doing Marc an injustice, putting him up there with Santana… but, in my mind Walkin’ in Memphis is one of the coolest songs out there! Especially when you see him do it LIVE!

Have you found any new and interesting blogs while/IF doing the #atozchallenge bloghop? I know I have. Today I found an enlightening and peaceful blog by Ida Chiavaro, called Reflex Reactions. She seems like a very mindful and dedicated human. I added her to my awesomeblogsifollow page, and I’ll be following her after the hop too!

I’m excited to announce my sister has come to a decision for which canvas of mine will grace her newly decorated living room. It’s going to be opposite a nice picture window and above a sofa with lamps at either end, so it will always be well lit. I am just beside myself, cuz I think it’s perfect for what said she wanted, teal background and all. You can find it at the top of today’s fractals… FINALLY – a real sale of a room sized piece of my art!! I may just take a picture of it hanging there in all its glory, once she gets it and has it hung. Which, of course I shall share with you (the pic, that is)!!!

I have joined the ranks of the Twitter tweeters. I put it off for so long, and now I wonder why. Not only that, I’ve been introduced to Hootsuite, which is a great place to keep all your social media organized. Hootsuite lets you schedule posts, not only on Twitter, but on both my FB pages, my G+ page (though that’s been confusing me a bit) and even my blog. Not to worry though… all posts to my blog here will always be prepared and, if scheduled, only in WP. No mass posting for my special peeps!! You can tweet me @kppput any darn time you want. Or even follow me. If you do follow me, I’ll follow you right back!

One last thing, I’ve been making more time to create more art than I have for a long time! I can’t tell you how wonderful that is. My mental health is directly related to how much creating/FUN time I get! Both FE and Apo are getting some well deserved attention from yours truly! So that means I still have to put a cap on how much blog hopping, I can do. But I think I’ve got a better handle at visiting more of you, if not every day, at least every once in a while! Lots of my inspiration comes from the bloggers I follow, so there’s no way I’m going to lose out on that fun!

So… off we go – on with the show…

F is for… FRACTAL DEFINED

Here we are… Day 6 of the April 2013 AtoZ Challenge… enjoy…

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 will post a fractal whose title starts with the letter of the day… and perhaps other things fractal related. How many new bloggers have you met?

F is for….
FRACTALS - of course… the whole kit and caboodle, the topic, the theme, the reason I am here…
FRACTAL DREAMS – my recently released book of fractal art, from the soul of Janet Russell aka Buddhakat
FRACTALS BY RED – At M3 Blog
FRATERCHAOS – Another excellent fractalist who uses MB3D
FRACTAL EXPLORER – another free fractal application… it is LOTS of fun

the fractal for F is: FractalsA Definition

WHAT IS A FRACTAL?

WHAT IS A FRACTAL?

The concept and image are both from the creative Kim Redd, aka :iconbeautifulchaos1: ; with her permission I included it in my book FRACTAL DREAMS and wanted to have absolutely for certain copyright free copy, so I wrote it myself. I am thankful to the many fractalists who have said it’s the best definition they have ever seen!

What is a Fractal is in my book, Fractal Dreams, which is available exclusively at RedmundPro.

Here we are, right in the middle of an A to Z bloghop Challenge… in case you missed it, I am featuring FRACTALS as my theme (what else!?!?). However, that shall certainly NOT interrupt our traditional Friday Feature. Music and all. And as a special treat to my wonderful followers, today’s fractals are all brand spanking new. I’ve been playing around a lot with Fractal Explorer. This site is also chock full of information on fractals. So feast your eyes on some new fractals with a tasty soundtrack…

And there we have another Friday at the Fractal Show! So I ended up posting 4 done with FE and 2 with Apo. “Prom Night” is another in the series for my sister’s living room wall. I really like how this turned out and so did she! We just might have a winner here!

Thanks bunches to all my loyal FridayFractalFeature visitors for your continued support. And welcome to all you wonderful new visitors who have have hopped in for the A to Z fun!

Have a great weekend, everyone! I do believe spring has sprung, even if the weather may be a little less than perfect, winter is taking its graces and fading away…

YAAAAAY!!! We are EARLY  today!!!

Guess you’ve probably all heard of the April 2013 A to Z Challenge starting up soon now… if you’re interested to participate, just click the link to the top right to get instructions and how-to’s…

As you are also aware, I’m building around a fractal theme… I’m afraid I’ll run out of words that relate to fractals – you know like Chaos Theory, Benoit B Mandelbrot, et al… if any of you have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to offer any ideas you come up with… I know I can come up with fractals titled using all letters of the alphabet, but I’m already struggling to keep the related words section from looking puny… any help I get will be appreciated AND credited! I’ll also include fractalists whose username’s fit the alphabetical bill… I hope to get lots of exposure for many more than just myself on this project, so bury your shyness, show your pride and let me know if you want me to include your username and link to your work. (Don’t worry, Red, you’re covered!) I already have a few, but I’m bound to forget someone at the appropriate letter! This old brain seems less able to retain and bring back stuff like that a lot more these days! (The tip of my tongue is filled with just such memories, unfortunately, I can’t see the tip of my tongue!) Leave and suggestions in the comments here or on this page: Fractals, Fractals, Fractals

So, on with the show, shall we…? One of my better sets, if I do say so myself… *blush blush*

F.R.A.C.T.A.L.S.

Oh my… it’s really SPRING!! YAAAY for everything VERNAL!!! Everyone is already making all their summer plans, even! And “why not?” I say!! Life is short – let’s get ready!

So, instead of waiting until after the summer and asking what you did, I’d love to hear what you’ve got planned for your summer. Vacation or not, summer is the active season, for the most part… the one where we get to do all the outdoor stuff. Always remember, though, there are some who prefer the indoors to the outdoors. Summer, winter matters not. I’m one of each, balanced, I hope. But I know some folks who are over the top one way or the other. So I try not to judge. (You did WHAT last night!?!!?)

So… I think I’m just looking forward to opening all the windows and getting that fresh air circulating. I can smell the spring/summer scents. And maybe the birds will move out of my air conditioners!

Well, then… enough silly talk… let’s get on with the fractals, shall we….?

KokopelliToo is one of my attempts for a wrapped canvas print for my sister’s freshly painted living room wall. The teal background is a dealbreaker for her and it took me a wile to get comfy using it. I’ve made several since this, but this is one of my faves. I think we may have a winner with one of my latest, so we’ll have to see.

Wishing you all a happy weekend, and a happy upcoming pre-Easter week. Wouldn’t it be cool if we ALL got some really divine weather for a while? Let’s work on that…

Good luck on selecting a favorite this week – I’m not sure I could name just one out of this bunch! Multiple faves are accepted! We have a mix again this week of Apo and Fractal Explorer.

love and hugs from all of us Buddhakats…

Greetings all… how has your week been…? Just as you had hoped it would be, I hope!

I have some RedmundPro news to share today.
First, our dear Red has released a sixth  seventh book (count ‘em – 6 7!), available in limited quantity signed copies for a while, The latest from Red is Mantra’s Book of Shadows.  That Mantra is a busy little Muse – if you remember, it wasn’t that long ago that together they published Mantra for a Muse.
Red’s also out recruiting new authors to publish, so if you know anyone who has a gem or germ of a book, be sure to refer them to RedmundPro to learn the process for submitting work for review.
And last on my RP agenda is the fact that I am hosting a Live Chat over at the forum at RP on Tuesday, March 5. I’ll be there for at least an hour, starting at 2pm, CST / 3pm EST. I hope you will stop on by on Tuesday – and have some questions for me about fractals, fractal art, being an artist or even being an author. I’ll be there… waiting for YOU!!!

On another front, we are now only 19 days until the 2013 Vernal Equinox. Yaaaaay!!!

and now…. for some fractals… pulled a few out of the really dusty archives and a couple new ones too…
ENJOY!!

Still of a mood for a couple of oldie and goodies, don’t you know…

A final hurrah of winter hangs over us like a whole season’s worth of the white stuff ready to bury us in our own little wonderlands… so far so good, here. Hope wherever you are that King Borealis has a gentle and kinder weekend planned for you.

Now, I know February is a short month and all… but my gosh – it’s almost gone already!?!?!? Hey… wait for me……….

Here’s the thing – I’m gonna pay attention to all your likes and comments about fractals as we pass through the year and next season we will have a grand award ceremony featuring all the favorites of the year… so no need to dig through the archives, just pay attention and let me know which fractals really get you where it counts, each week. So then, mayhap, we’ll have a top ten vote down and crown a fractal champion for the year!

I have been missing the actual activity of creating and playing with fractals, so I am dedicating some fractal time each and every week just to flex my muscles again. In at least the three favorite apps of mine: Apo, FE and UF5. Can’t wait!

However, I still managed to pull a few out of my hat here, for you, so I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful terrific weekend.

love you all!!!
