Since the last post about eight years ago I have incorporated my art blog with my more general blog
The Art category covers a lot of art stuff.
The digital sketches cover all my sketches since ThousandSketches
I’m working on a book…
NOTE: Though it may say so here and there, I don’t sell prints at this time.
Quoting an email I just got.
Your artwork was mentioned in Germany’s Beat magazine. They reviewed our first live release and included your circle as the associated artwork.
Signals Under Tests – “Live at verbal Arts” – Beat Magazine Review
“Even though the Irish duo, consisting of Ricky Graham & John King, is actually still working behind the scenes on their first studio album with great attention to detail, this live recording sounds already stunningly mature and in no way like a test. Highly minimal sound grounds, with a high affinity for backward loops, are cut by glamorous jazz-specific guitars and extend up to eleven minutes as in dream time. The enigmatic cover by Walter Logeman congenially complements the music.”
New display of Outliers in the Gallery. All 10 from Thousand Sketches.
Can’t believe it is Months since I posted here! Thousand Sketches were completed 19 months ago.
Thousand Sketches is blog of the day on BOSHart
Thousand Sketches is a completed project. 1000 sketches – done.
I am still sketching though, see my current work here In this moment…
Here is a the sketch I posted today, there is other new material in In this moment… My Art Journal!
Challenge and change
Prints are for sale.
I am working on a landscape project. As with the Earth Crosses the series has it origin here in Thousand Sketches. I am doing new landscapes and I am re-working some of the landscapes from the Thousand Sketches – for example, on my Art Journal “In this moment…” you can see the new version of this one. The plan is to do them in oils as well.
I just updated a post I did in October Added an picture I said I’d add of a Frank Stella painting.
Finished up simplifying my image while I was there. Of course the original is still there in the original post, but here is the tweaked one:
This image is available printed in a limited edition. It is available exclusively on Felt, a New Zealand Art & Craft website.
“In this Moment” is where I write my art, artists, art philosophy and ideas.

#1000 Departing Force
For the vertical to descend it departs as it returns.
So this is 1000. Thanks for your appreciation, encouragement involvement. So many people have cheered me on. Thank you!
I will continue to post here about the Thousand Sketches as the project continues to transform itself though I will not be adding sketches. You can stay in touch by subscribing to the feed for Thousand Sketches.
I will continue to blog & sketch on on my old blog: Psyberspace, please subscribe there and stay in touch as I continue to explore the psyche in Cyberspace, with sketches too of course.
This image is now featured in the Walter Logeman: Gallery
A more satisfying version of the hills, of their power.
#0998 Return Cross
As if to return with strength I added the vertical, but I keep going.
So here is another return. Return to earth, hills, New Zealand, lines, incantations, and I am trusting, strength.
Fittingly the last of the incantations is (I return) (with strength) So I thought of the first in the series. here is a return to that. It lacked the strength. I keep going.
#0995 Archon Arachnid
Archons are the baddies, viruses, mind parasites, beasts, devils. They are the ancient enemy of the earth. I am not sure what it all means really, but it made me think of the wonderful metal spider in the DIA N.Y. Beacon. Not sure of the artist or name of this sculpture but will add later.

#0993 Watch the Weaving
Sometimes we weave & sometimes watch the weaving. This is a return too to Stripes, one of the prints in the Allen Gallery in New York.
#0992 Lenticular Worlds
#0991 Red Light
#0990 Red Light
#0989 Maurice Bucke
Maurice Bucke was the psychologist who came up with the words cosmic consciousness. Ok, corny now, but it paved the way I think for things to come.
His connection with an equally bearded Walt Whitman is in the movie Beautiful Dreamers but probably not worth watching!
It is easy to go too flowery and too cosmic for our taste. Keep it simple.
I dreamt the sky and the earth were dreaming about their love.
