Under Pain of Oblivion

Pierre-Auguste Renoir said, “In painting, as in the other arts, there's not a single process, no matter how insignificant, which can be reasonably made into a formula. You come to nature with your theories, and she knocks them all flat.

What you find here is not formulaic; it is visual art, from the serene to the surreal, via various and diverse processes, intended to liven up time spent using digital devices and visiting virtual spaces. No single piece here will appeal to everyone - all are intended for you to re-use in your own private ways, from adding them to your cellphone or computer to personalize those devices, or inclusion in an online profile or web page, to using them as the jumping off point in your own creativity.

The galleries are closed for technical adjustment, we're testing and tweaking behind the curtain, but you can do searches or find certain images under the 4 main menu categories: Photos, Digital Art, Words to Live By, and Seamless Backgrounds, bearing in mind that some of the sub-categories are currently under renovation and will appear empty.

The emphasis is on the content, not the words or the site. Mostly that means monochromatic rules apply when it comes to the process of presenting the images, which you'll rarely see unfettered and uncovered once they're on a web page or loaded as a background on your iPad, laptop, smartphone, etc. Oh sure, the words matter—here, somewhat, and certainly where lyrics, quotes, and proverbs are presented—but the reason behind collecting and displaying these images is to spread a visual buffet for you to sample, share, and enjoy.


“An artist, under pain of oblivion, must have confidence in himself, and listen only to his real master: Nature.”

~Pierre-Auguste Renoir
