I think I may have mentioned I have a lot of interests. Over the last ten years, I’ve dabbled in a number of art forms and have saved some of the results of my experimentation. I don’t claim it’s art, but it was fun to do!

One category of these experiments is “photo manipulation.” That’s where I take a photo (or multiple photos) and modify them in Photoshop. The modifications can range from minor to extreme.

Another category is fractals. These were made using Ultra Fractal.

Yet another type of creative play is called Touch Drawing. It’s an interesting technique using oil paints and was created by Deborah Koff-Chapin who lives on Whidbey Island in Washington.

And, just to show how completely not seriously I take this dabbling, here’s a drawing done using a graphics tablet.

What do you dabble in?

      Thanks! I do think they look kinda cool (or at least cool enough so I’m not too embarrassed to display them online 🙂

      I sort of view them as interesting accidents.
