The less is more theme continues now to the point whereby the picture may only be seen now by using one's inner eye.

Making up for the missing picture yesterday.
Posts the following days may be haphazard as well.

Strange how the idea of flowers and plants keeps informing these abstracts. Often the end result doesn't remind of plant life anymore, but still, as a starting point, it makes for more interesting abstracts than when I start out with no figurative visual intention....

it looks like a struggle of some sort, not between the 2 pieces but a struggle to come to life.

You are adopting the Zen notion of less is more, put in what you think you need then start removing all but the absolute essential.

Story
Tagline
I try to create opportunities for long-distance eye contact. I am an artist. I read, I write and I draw.
Introduction

What does it mean to be an artist today?

It seems easier then ever to connect to people all over the world, to show your work and have it “liked”.

But how do you go from this instant but superficial contact to establishing true and meaningful connections?

Is it possible to make long-distance eye contact?


Is it possible to make art on your own terms, without desperately trying to please the masses nor some high-art establishment?

And if that’s possible, where do you keep finding the courage to be so beautifully selfish?


Bragging rights
I posted a "daily doodle" on Google+ every single day since April 7 2012.
