The beauty of nature can be captured to an extent if the artist maintains a sharp lookout for it. The above image at Anna Ruby Falls was composed of four images stiched together to give a very wide angle appearance.
A view from the inside of my 1957 Chevrolet on the sands of Daytona Beach. Again this is a super-wide angle view of one of the few ocean drives where cars were allowed on the beach. The driver's POV recalls the experience of commanding one of the hot rod classics amongst bikes, swimmers and drunks.
Though no guilds are now available to gain apprenticeship it is possible to use the old ways of copying the master works. Pieter Brughel's work that often displayed large amount of space was insiprational and taught me to drop my drug fueled distorted images to strive towards a sense of realism, something not easily obtained at a whim.
Farout and nuts cartoons let it all out to hang on the line. Ideas quickly became reality and more often than not were sponsered by weed and drink. Creativity however was explored and the imagination proved to be a very strange and fascinating world.
