Here is “Dharmadhatu 2”, second of two circular paintings completed last year. Oil on canvas, 20” diameter. . Any other tag recommendations?

Last year I created some circular paintings (painting on a circular canvas) for a show. I was pretty pleased with how they came out. This is one of them. “Dharmadhatu 1.” Oil on canvas. "Dharmadhatu (Sanskrit) is the 'dimension', 'realm' or 'sphere' (dhātu) of the Dharma or Absolute Reality."

If anyone is interested in oil painting, you might like to see this little - very brief - tutorial on creating an "imprimatura" ...
What's an imprimatura, you ask? It's all explained in the post!

Fun little piece of I found in NYC the other day. Pretty much sums up the American Dream!

A recent watercolor sketch. This is one of the images appearing in my “visual storytelling” post on my Patreon.

So, yay, I got 10 followers (thank you, thank you) and now I'm listed in the Profile Directory! Fun! So my first impressions so far: this is a nice space -- I like the functionality of the interface on my desktop, not so much on the phone. It's a little quiet though, at least in the local timeline. I'll see if I can add anything to the conversation. Oh, and, wow 500 characters. This is quite a lot! Oh, and I LOVE 'delete and redraft' (pesky typos 😭 )

My new Patreon post on Current Experiments and Visual Storytelling is now published! Just a little something to ponder.

By way of further , here’s an example of my work, a painting in my ongoing Lifeworld series. Oil on canvas, 2017.

Technical question: how come something I’ve favorited on the federated timeline isn’t showing up in my list of favorites? I faved it because I want to go back to it.

I have my best ideas in the morning. Malheureusement je suis coincé dans le boulot le matin

I'm working on a small blog post for my Patreon site on "visual storytelling." More or less some philosophical ponderings and some photos of recent experiments. Maybe I'll get that post live tomorrow. Right now, I'm too beat to continue. Here's a a recent photo I plan to include, by way of preview.

Hello everyone—
Is there a recommended iOS app for Mastodon, or is it better to just use the web browser? I see there seem to be quite a few choices.

Hello world! Just setting this up — giving Mastodon a try. 😀 By way of introduction, I’m an artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Je parle français aussi. À tout.es les Francophones, soyez bienvenues !
