My new wallpaper, “Containment”, is finally up on the new images page. It took somewhat longer than I intended to finish it and I apologize for that. The 2560 x 1600 render took around 15 hours (as opposed to probably 60 hours on my old machine) and I rendered it no less than 5 times before I was satisfied with the result. I hope you like it.
Jessie kept telling me that I should just post it and move on. She prefers my scenery images (and judging from the rankings I’ve observed in the galleries, most of you do too) and wonders why I “waste” my time on abstracts. I do abstracts because they allow complete creativity. Sceneries all have rules which must be followed (or it doesn’t look “real”). Not so with abstracts. Abstract art lets my brain wander freely and I think they are necessary exercises. That’s why I will continue to do them, even if I know they aren’t the most popular images in my collection.
That having been said, I do think it is time to move on to some scenery. Expect something Autumn related…
