Some warm creativity during this cold winter

I thought I’d share some recent fractal creations with you today. It seems this time of year I’m drawn to bright colors as I wait impatiently for springtime. This year has been no exception, although this first piece only has a hint of spring color!

I’ve also gotten into a routine where I create three of these images at a setting. Seems like after the third my brain has had enough!

These images build, one to the next, with added layers, effects and closer details. Sometimes you can see the growth but often they end up looking totally different from their sources. I like that each is unique and stands on it’s own.

Do you have habits and routines in your creativity?

Fractal Frenzy!

I continue to keep busy making new digital art for my digital blog, digital+art+daily, so I am sharing a few new creations with you today.

I can seem to get away from creating fractals…I’ve made dozens over the last couple of weeks! I’m feeling the urge to return to digital drawings soon though, we’ll just have to wait & see what digital art I have to share next time!

Fractals on the go!

So, I’ve taken a few small trips to nearby destinations the last couple of weeks, enjoying spring break time with my friends and family who have some time off. Although it’s not been “spring” yet, with cold temperatures and some cloudy skies, it is at least a BREAK. I’ve carried my laptop with me on my travels so I could work on some digital projects if the time and and enthusiasm showed up to do so. At least on one occasion it did! I’m still processing, combining and interpreting some of the new fractals that sprung forth but here is a small selection of new pieces to share with you today:

I hope that your spring is progressing, however slowly, into a time you enjoy! As I’m going to be gone again for a few days this week I probably won’t be posting again until next.

Later gator,

Awakening and friends…

I’m still adding to my collection of digital art, having a blog that is set up to show a new images each day keeps me motivated! One thing I decided I would do differently starting in 2013 is to name all my digital images vs. a haphazard numbering/naming combination system. So today I am going to introduce you to “Awakening”, “Affinity”, “Align”  and “Adlib” :

I’ve also been exploring with some drawing programs on my tablet, once I feel a little more comfortable with those skills I’ll share a few digital images created that way.

New Fractal Play!

Although I’ve declared 2013 my year of exploration, at this point I’ve not got anything new ready to share with you. So the next few posts will be wrapping up the projects from 2012. Today I’m sharing a few new fractal images that I created in December.

Of course if you want a larger selection be sure to visit digital+art+daily, my blog dedicated exclusively to digital art, that features a new/different image each day of the year. Amazingly I made it through the first year keeping up with it, let’s see how the second year goes!

For 2013 I am going to be titling all my digital art and fractals, I’ve begun to confuse myself with the numbers, especially by starting at 1 each year…if I don’t note the year in the title as well – yikes! I spent a few hours the other day starting a list of title names to draw from.

Sorry, but these images you will have to deal with the last of the numbering system! I had fun playing with these…I’m up to three fractal programs on my computers now, plus I’ve discovered some for my tablet as well. Between all of them and a photo/digital project that I’ve put off for way too long I shouldn’t have any trouble creating a year’s worth of images.

Late night creativity

I spend a few hours on the couch each evening, being social with my family, watching television and just relaxing. Except I can’t stand to just SIT and do nothing! (Face it, 99% of the reason we watch t.v. is so we have an excuse to sit & do nothing!) So I’ve got a stash of Suduko books, crossword puzzles and – most importantly – my laptop nearby. I enjoy spending time surfing the web, socializing on Facebook, catching up on emails and doing a bit a tweeting on Twitter. But evenutally I end up using the time to edit photos or, as the case has been lately, creating digital art. I’ve been on a fractal art kick recently – these are two new images from the past week.

Last night I switched it up and made a digital collage, which I haven’t done in quite some time.

I have to admit that I really enjoyed doing something a bit different. I guess I’ll know how much I enjoyed it by what follows during my next evening on the couch! I never pre-plan so whatever happens will just happen…which is something else I enjoy about these late night creativity sessions.

Blended Fractals #42 and #43

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve shared any fractal or digital artwork on this blog so I thought I’d sneak some in today!

Most of my newest creations comprised of several different fractal images blended together to make one new colorful, detailed piece. No exception here! These are the “single” fractal images that I used:

This time I had so much fun blending and changing the coloring on the art that I came up with two final pieces. I just couldn’t decided! So you get to see both. 🙂

So, do you have a favorite between the two? Or like one of the singles best?

Blended Fractal #38

Switching gears today and sharing some new fractal art with you! This piece was created by layering two other fractals together and blending them.

As you can tell by the look of the two original fractal pieces they were twisted, turned and color modified quite a bit to make the new image!

I really like this new image (and the two originals) now I just need to find a reason to have some prints made. 🙂

New Fractal Prints!

Although I’ve been featuring my digital art on my blog digital+art+daily, I thought you might enjoy seeing some recent work (I’ve been doing a LOT of digital art lately).

I had the images processed at Star Photo in Anderson, Indiana. It was fun to brainstorming with Chuck and come up with some creative ways to display my work. He took this photo of them prior to sending them to me:

As great as they look here, they look even better in person! Stop in the gallery and view them, they’ll only be there two more weeks – don’t miss it. 🙂
