A

rt at the most basic level is a way to connect the dots by reproducing something that is trapped within your soul, your imagination, your brain or your heart. Everything around us can in fact be turned into a masterpiece of art.

It can be as simple as a tire properly placed on the wall, a soda can that is photographed just right, a few randomly placed items that have a certain sense of symbolic meaning to you, which are layered on top of one another. Or, it can be something more technically advanced-which contains the proper use of time and space, good use of color, perhaps light and shadow (or not), texture and fantastic looking and feeling materials. It takes a sense of imagination, patience, passion and most importantly, the ability to not be frightened when things dont happen instantly. Fear in itself should always be left at the backdoor when creating anything.

 

The FunCTion OF Art

T

Would you like some instructions? The Function is... Grow up, just don't grow old!

he function of art can contain a quality that sparks conversation, be that political, intellectual or spiritual, but it doesnt always have to. This function can also serve as visual eye candy that brings out the best in those once empty walls. This function can spark your creative juices that fill your cup to the rim and flows over. In short, this function, should always inspire, communicate or transfer something out of you that either wasnt there before or, needed to be brought out.

Art can take us into a world that doesnt play by the terms boundaries and rules; it can beat to his or her own drummer; it allows the slightly nutty to exist in a world that has run amok. However; an artist is often times that lonely ship that travels alone in the night, but as the fog horn echoes out, I know in my mind, that it always appears darkest before the doves brings the dawn into my life.



T H E C R E A T O R

AN ARTIST IS WHAT I AM, CREATING ANYTHING OUT OF NOTHING. FORMING THOUGHTS PRODUCING PLENTY, LIFE NOW HAS NEW MEANING. SCULPTING MY WAYS INTO THE WAY IT SHOULD BE. EACH MOMENT HAS NEW BEGINNING; EACH ARTISTIC INCLINATION BEGINS WHEN ONE MANIPULATES THE SHADOW INTO REALITY.

IF I GET ALL THAT I NEED, KNOWING THE NEEDING IS WHAT I DREAM; POSSIBILITIES SHAPE ANYTHING OUT OF MY BELIEVING. I GIVE SO MUCH JUST AS I TAKE OUT OF THE EARTH, MY LOVE FOR LIVING IS APPARENT IN MY SEEKING.

IN THE END WE SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE FRIENDS.

Meditation To Die For

MAY PEACEFULNESS FALL UPON THY BODY AND TELL OUR EYES AND EARS WHAT'S WRONG FROM RIGHT. MAY OUR SPEECHES BE SPOKEN FROM DEEP WITHIN. MAY ALL OUR INTUITIONS MATURE AND STRENGTHEN AS WISDOM ENTERS IN. DIRECT US AS WERE LOST, SHOWING THE PATH THAT PAVES OUR WAY. I'LL FOLLOW MY FOOTSTEPS THROUGHOUT NIGHT-THROUGHOUT DAY. WHEN TIME STARTS CALLING AND DEATH APPEARING TO APPEAR, FEAR BECOMES THE FEARED FOR WE SHALL KNOW YOUR NAME, WE SHALL CALL YOUR NAME. NEW LIFE STARTS AS DAWN DRAWS NEAR, OUR TRANSFORMATION SHOULD BE EFFORTLESS LIKE A BREATH REQUIRING NO AIR. THOSE WHISPERS BECOME SHOUTS AS OLD FRIENDS APPEAR. AS LIGHT SHADOWS THE DARK ONLY GOOD MUST COME FROM PAIN. MAY OUR SOULS SOAR HIGH AS MY LORD JESUS GIVES WAY. THIS PASSAGE NOW ENDING, I'LL LEAVE ONE FINAL PRAYER, LET MAN FIND THAT GENTLE BEING THAT'S BEEN

TRAPPED INSIDE.

This Website was originally developed with Netscape in mind, but after careful consideration due to the "DOM" (Document Object Model), and it's special effects through the use of DHTML, I recommend switching to Internet Explorer. I've recently been developing this site with only IE in mind. This site was first created with a resolution factor of 800 by 600. However, as I got a larger monitor, once in a while I use the "span" and "layer" tags with a higher resolution. But, from now on, I will stick to my original 800 by 600 factor. If you wish to view the layered art effects properly (if things appear out of place), you will need to be in a resolution factor of 800 by 600. Also, the following pages have a generic preloader that is really just some visual eye candy (motion graphics) for you to enjoy before you proceed to the main page. The pages are houseartpreloader | photographicartpreloader | computerartpreloader. The motiongraphics should only last roughly 20 seconds, with the exception of photographicartpreloader, which has a button for you to proceed anytime you desire.
