Mr. Duality

In the words of the immortal Bobs: "I don't want to have multiple personalities. Two is enough!"
This image was inspired by the song & by a Mexican mask that hangs on my dining room wall. It's acrylic on text from an old slide rule manual, collaged to canvas, about 5x5.5".

Fresh from the drawing board this time!

The cabbage patch theory has lost favor due to recent discoveries.

Acrylic on old botanical texts, collaged on canvas, 6x6". I'll probably tweak this a bit more at some point, but here it is for now!

Fig, Newton

This is another old one-- really old-- in fact this was one of my first finished pieces done entirely in Photoshop. It was done as a bookmark promo to show clients that Leah the ex-Luddite was venturing into new territory.

I promise I will post something new later! I just love science-related topics.

Specimen (Darwin) again...

Yes, I've posted this before (in a slightly unfinished state), but it fit the topic so well I couldn't resist. Acrylic on collaged texts (from 19th c. sources) on canvas, with digital tweaking, 6x6"

I'm still hoping to do a new piece for this topic-- being a scientist's daughter I'm full of ideas for this one.

I'm having a lot of trouble making decisions lately so this topic was a little painful! Sometimes I just feel I'm in the midst of an impenetrable thicket. Hence the illo. (No, that isn't a self-portrait... for one thing I haven't broken through yet!)

My math obsession intrudes again... maybe because math is one of the few subjects where the answers are absolute. (At least as far in as calculus, after which my math abilities came to a screeching halt.) I always liked that about math. Most things in life are far more nebulous... I guess I'm hoping there is AN ANSWER out there somewhere.

So anyway, this is once again acrylic on collaged texts on canvas, 6x6". The texts were from various old math & science books I've collected...

Fallen way behind, for one thing! But thanks to some gentle prodding from friends I'm finally back to blogging, & IF.

Here we have a blanket of leaves. Or should I say leaf.

This image was originally inspired by "Rake" by Optiganally Yours. ("...I tend to weep when the color's all gone grey...")

It's 6x6", acrylic on canvas with collaged text from an old Russian algebra textbook. I'm not entirely sure why...

If for some reason you want a closer look at Russian equations, click on the image.
