The Love for Finesse
Until recently, finessing an image came hard. Now the bit by bit alterations, which lead to nuanced intellectual and emotional subtlety, feel right and good. You can see it happening in the images I post today. Neither came quick. Both came with slow contemplation. It is a mode of behavior which once made me uncomfortable. At one point in my life I was a research scientist. I left that profession because it required a great deal of slow, contemplative behavior. I wanted physical, energetic use of mind and limb. Making Art was my solution. Here I am making Art with behavior similar to my best days as scientist.
BTW: If you are interested my contribution to the understanding of carbon dioxide's role in global warming, see this scientific paper:
