Self-Portrait


Beautiful though a bit shocking to those who haven't see an arm's vein surgically made into an artery by switching their routes at the wrist. But many tens of thousands... I don't know how many people, undergo dialysis yearly for kidney failure. It extends life by many years or decades. Many lucky people like me get to use it as a bridge to an even better treatment: transplant. Please consider making yourself an organ donor and talking to your family about your wish (if you wish it) to donate your organs after your death. They won't be any use to you then! Cheers, and thanks to my family and friends for getting together the money to make me one of the really really lucky ones (November 5, 2005) and thanks be, last but not least, to God for hearing my heart and making me the most fortunate of the most fortunate with a perfect 6 antigen match.

Dialysis Patient and Nurse revisited

Revisiting an older post


For a larger size click here.

Dialysis Patient and Nurse was a small pastel made while undergoing a dialysis treatment. (Concentration was difficult so it was one of only two.) As I was preparing to hand over this piece to its new owner (this is often a very good time to give it one last long look) I saw something in it I hadn't seen before and that's that the nurse, carrying an umbrella (protecting the patient is her function) and the patient who is in a litter (the patient is treated like royalty, is "carried" from death to life), are both on the back of a horse. But perhaps the horse is a donkey and Jerusalem is its location. Then, using Christian symbolism, it represents the patient as Christ! Quite a delusion! But wait: perhaps not. Maybe it only expresses his hoped for resurrection. Therefore the road the donkey's lumbering on's called Transplant Lane!

"The Bridge"


Click here to see a larger image in a new window.

Spring and summer are photography season. Fall and winter too. I do not pre-limit the number of prints but allow the market to decide through a 50%+ rule: the cost of the first unframed print is negotiable. I can arrange framing at cost. I won't refuse a reasonable offer. Each subsequent buyer must pay 50% more but they may pay any amount above that. The higher the price the fewer the buyers, the more limited the print number, the higher the value of each piece sold. This removes the distortion in the photography market caused by an arbitrary limitation. It also ends the absurd sale of the last print as the "artist's proof."

What's the difference what the tool is?

So long as the vision is [whatever it is], then the tool is unimportant.... This is the way I'm leaning. Poetry, photography, painting, drawing, singing... all just different tools to create a tool to unlock the imagination of the viewer. or to measure the world.

Photinia


Photinia #1 or Nephrons #5 (2009) 16" x 16" Oil on canvas.

Update: The "Photinia" is a different plant from the one behind this painting. The photos are of Cocoplum "red tip" not Photinia. Photinia's leaves are thin, papery, serrated, long and slender, pointy tipped. Cocoplum's are leathery, almost like a succulent, waxy, oval to round, not serrated. That the Coccoplum still resembles the nephrons for me hasn't changed though.
