About

This page began as a place to write and express my thoughts and ideas in as simple and clear a way as possible.  It has emerged into a platform for sharing my artwork and interacting with other artists and creatives.  I greatly enjoy viewing other artists’ works and am grateful when they take the time to stop by my site to see what I’m up to.  I want this site to be a place where we can interact with each other so please feel free to comment on any of my pieces, your honest feedback is incredibly helpful because it helps me understand how my work is connecting with others.

Thanks for coming by!

Eli

    I am enjoying looking across your art work. It is great that you get images done and posted.
    The most simple things are supported by great complexity and the most complex things are made of simplicity.
    To me Abstract art is not a simple thing, but a simple view of a complex thing. That is what makes abstractions interesting. Paintings that are not an abstraction of “something” are themselves an extraction that is then spoken into existence by an individual artist and looked upon by others as an abstraction, but it is really an extraction from an individual becoming visible. Once extracted then the mind can abstract an image from the thought or emotion and as it firms up it becomes something. See how complicated that got.
    Thanks for visiting my site, I will keep looking in at your blog
