Greetings, one and all… I don’t know about you, but I say HOORAY for autumn!!! I love summer and all, but I think my body prefers the summers of Alaska or upper Canada. I’ve had it with these 90 F  day/nights!

OK, so I threw my back out last week and am just now able to consider mobility without my body at a 90 angle to itself. I hurt so bad I had to postpone the liver biopsy scheduled for earlier this week…  I’m talking can’t stay conscious, nauseating pain – anyone ever having had back injuries knows what I mean.

So, unable to do do anything but get up out of bed (hardly), well, I thought I’d do some behind the scenes browsing, just to see what I can find. At FineArtAmerica, turns out my images all show how many viewers each has had since I uploaded them. Some I’m surprised, some I’m proud and some I just knew would be received well… these numbers do NOT include my own views of each work, which in itself is helpful…

So here’s a sampling of my more popular works on FineArtAmerica…

FLYING CARPET PARKING LOT – can’t say this one surprises me – it’s gotten lots of cool comments… and it is pretty cool, if I do say so myself! Even made it to the cover of a newly released indie author’s sci-fi book Jabberweil Hunt

next, WREATHING and ORNAMENTALS are a couple of wannabe “seasonal” pieces. I’ve hardly ever set out to make something “seasonal”, but these had that feeling when they were done, so I went with it in titling them…

WHERE’S GODOT? – This one’s popularity did surprise and please me quite a bit… it’s one of my more technically skilled creations…

HIDDEN RAINBOWS – another surprise, sort of… it’s one of my earliest good pieces so it holds a special place in my heart. Plus, it is a beautiful piece! And to this day in my personal top ten!

CORSAGE – finally today, there are all kind of reasons why this both surprises and delights me that it’s so popular… I don’t do flora very often, I hardly ever use(d) orange and it really popped when it was done. And, it’s one in a series that sort of fall into a category of flora, orange, barn, hoe down, line dancing and such. (don’t know why – just the way it happened).

Now this was a very stimulating to me with this filter through which to select this weeks choices. I will continue my research and come back with some more of the same. It’ll be interesting to see how the sites (FineArtAmerica, DeviantArt, RedBubble) differ, or even if they do. This is one of the few sites that shows list of submissions with many stats, so I can see at a glance.

Also while I’ve been laid up this week, good old Clyde from M3 land was on a walkabout and caught wind of one of my more entertaining encounters in the feifdom of customer service. Here in Bhuddaville and in true cyber style.  Having worked the industry for my entire career, it’s a subject close to my heart – once a manager, always a manager, I guess. Anyway, this one’s called The eBay Saga. That will be up (here and maybe at M3 too) sometime this week… even if it’s not finished, it will be an entertaining ride through the ranks of those in the service of customers. And, so far, believe it or not, eBay is one of the good guys in this funny tale of behavior, bullying and ballast. It’s a tale of condescension, expectations and, by Clyde, it’s enough to make an ape ponder! (trademark Red of M3 fame)

OK, then, that’s it for today… hope autumn is rolling in for you with all its sense memories intact, mostly the of the scent variety in orchards, in kitchens all across the land. Apples and cider and spices, oh my! Pumpkins and crackling leaves beneath your feet and a bit of chill in the night, oh my!

Until next time… namaste.

SOMEWHAT RELATED, IF NOT INTERESTING

RedBubble: Buddhakat’s portfolio

Red’s book Taming the Terrible Twos affectionately known as T3 has been accepted into the library of at least one technical college for their department of Early Childhood Development. Congrats, Red on your success and expansion into the educational arena!

Do you like jigsaw puzzles? Know anyone that does? Check out the gallery of Janet Russell aka Buddhakat on DA where each and every piece of her unique work can be made into a lovely 10″x14″ puzzle. Think of the fun! Think of the challenge. From the youngest to oldest puzzlephile, this will truly be a delight!

OK already… I got distracted – while I was out seeking interesting or related things I got waylaid at Cafe Press and realize I haven’t yet opened my shoppe with them. I haven’t opened a new shop from scratch for a long while, so I have my work cut out for me. Sorry I got distracted by shiny things. It’s now time to publish this post and get to work! (Good thing I’m still virtually laid up for a while!)

*** cheers…

It’s Fractal Fever Time…

Thank goodness these fractals only bring joy and peace and smiles. Certainly the rest of the world doesn’t even come close to such claims! That said, and as Tess says, “let’s CUT the crap”. On with the fractals, then… it shall be so…

D is for… Dance Galactica

Today is Day 4 of the April 2013 AtoZ Challenge… enjoy…

I may have forgotten to mention my theme – it will be 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. AND, I’m still having a ball!! Check out A to Z Travel Tips at Laugh-Quotes.com

D is for….
Digital – most fractals you will see these days are made with the assistance of computers, so not only is the art fractal, mostly it is digital.
Dimensions – Minkowski-Bouligand Dimension or Hausdorff Dimension are two of the most used methods of measuring fractals link.
David Foster Wallace – claims the structure for the first draft of his novel Infinite Jest was based on the Sierpinsky triangle (gasket).
Dsynegrafix – a friend, fellow artist who currently uses Mandelbulb3D (free) to make his excellent fractals in his DA Gallery.

the fractal for D is: Dance Galactica

DANCE GALACTICA

DANCE GALACTICA

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

Disclaimer: I am NOT a mathematician, so please forgive the uneducated tone of my definitions. I am an artist, so I try to explain the math of fractals to the best of my (limited)  ability.
