Welcome to Gallery 5. There is much to see here of my work with geometric art, some of which goes back more than fifty years. The continuous line fractals are the oldest ones in this collection and many were found by me--I prefer not to say created--some forty or fifty years ago. I have learned to be very cautious about claiming any design as my own original creation. There is really only one Creator, and all that so-called human creators do is bring to light that which He has already fashioned. And it is quite likely that there are also human discoverers of the designs of the Great Artist who have preceded me in my own search.
This site includes the beginning of my border and panel designs. These were first begun in the early 1990's. Because of its enormous size the border and panel collection takes up three sites and part of a fourth. Even with this large collection, what appears here of these border and panel designs is only a portion, albeit the most significant one, of a vast number of designs. I hope other artists and designers will find inspiration here and I would be very interested to hear from anyone who desires to make use of them in any way.
Everything in this site is freely offered to all who wish to enjoy it. You may download pictures and articles, but not, of course, for commercial use. Any pictures that are downloaded will not be of the highest resolution, but will be good enough for small prints. I welcome comments and reactions, also donations. There are many things that I hope to do to upgrade the quality of the images, to explore other means of outreach, and to prepare for presentations in various venues, so any funds received will be used for these kinds of purposes. This is a non-commercial ministry. It goes forth with my prayer that God will use it to bless all who view it.
I would like to hear from some of you who may wish to pass on any comments, ideas, or suggestions. Let me know if my site has been of value to you. I am definitely interested in receiving mail. Write to my post office box or g-mail me.
