What do you think? I like it but I can change my mind at any time.
Posted earlier in this blog. Also the titles here may change.
One for the ITM project.
An early one #23 in the ThousandSketches. I like it.
I have a new creative project. A book. I will select about a hundred of my images that evoke a variety of mood and intensity, ranging from calm, surprise to fear. I’m working on the words. This project will link my art work with my psychological work. I’m looking for quality. Curation. The main thrust of the work is abstract, though some open-ended figurative images might pass the test.
Posts wi candidate images for the project will be in the Category ITM . I’ll be creating new images, searching for old ones, updating old ones and improving print quality if I can.
Please comment on posts. What is the mood, intensity and moment or life stage the image evokes.
I’ll continue to post new sketches here that are not in the ITM Category (yet), so I will feel free to explore.
Thanks for being on the journey so far.
I was moved to be there today. Five years post earthquake. I missed it, but I didn’t realise how much I missed it. I have been a regular visitor since 1967, and so there were familiar works, and I loved immersing myself into the textures.
Max Gimblett. This was an item in his classic clover shape. I just liked being close up.
Close up of a McCahon.
I can see the Harley building where I used to work, fate still unknown.
Petrus van der Velden – amazing image of Otaro river.
E. Mervyn Taylor, I recall his woodcuts in the School Magazine.
Close up of a Rita Angus watercolour. How does do that bleeding?
I’ve an urge to do some plain air sketching. So been Googleing

Exploring an old theme of mine with new apps.
There is rhythm in this style so I call them Music.
Without the art Gallery out of action this is a wonderfully innovative exhibit. I was moved to see that with many of these buildings gone, their heritage can survive.
Following this idea that the digital image can fade, wear, and enhance its beauty over time.
Now I wonder how much wabi sabi influenced the work of Jackson Pollock and those whom bought calligraphic ideas from japan like Mark Tobey
