Triangular stars

“Gently close your eyes and feel your phosphenes, when none is there to feel you.”  Naren Yousuf

I’m in my mental laboratory creating magic. You know when you close and rub your eyes and you see beautiful patterns and colours that morph; that is what I have tried to emulate.

What causes these patterns? Phosphenes are the moving visual sensations of stars and patterns we see when we close our eyes. They are thought to be caused by the inherent electrical charges the retina produces even when it is in its “resting state” and not taking in a ton of information and light like it does when our eyes are open.

I  just love the multiple patterns and colours phosphenes produce, with a a little help from our imaginations .

I’m experimenting with new techniques on illustrations that I have created. I quite like this effect of mirrored reflections and refractions, in the shape of a shamrock.  I guess it’s a lucky symbol for the Irish at heart! What do you think?

PEACE STAR

PEACE STAR

At times, I need to remind myself of ‘the peace within’ when I feel swept away by external forces beyond my control. It is always deep at my centre, where I can calm my turmoil.

BOURGANVILLEA MAGIC

BOURGANVILLEA MAGIC

It’s amazing what imagery can be created using mirroring. I created this magical cathedral by simply mirroring a section of of beautiful Bourganvillea, that grows over my back fence. If one looks closely, there are whole galaxies of images to be found. Can you see the butterfly at its centre? What can you see?

Blue and Gold

Blue and Gold in perfect symmetry,
Symbiotically holding each other together,
Fused into one composition,
Beautifully.
