Innatas Reflecterum - Surreal Art at RSMITHINGS.com - Because our reflections, or reflections of anything, are only secondhand information, rather than being a direct statement of the source, it's important to practice perspective, however difficult that can be at times. Situations, people, even things as seemingly concrete as arching trees, the beauty of a rose, or things as literally concrete like a building exist in our minds only that they are subject to our perception; something very susceptible to change, sometimes by our own design, other times less so.

Oceanus Rubigo - more at RSMITHINGS.com - I came upon a dumpster in my neighborhood speckled with rusted, peeling paint pockmarks and a crow in the same parking lot. I immediately thought the two would make a meaningful pairing, and set about documenting them as best I could. Thinking back to nautical maps of centuries ago, the kind with sea beasts and rough approximations of coastlines, I took the opportunity to include several of my common photomontage elements in a similar vein. Clouds, an eye, tree parts, a moth, etc. all come together in this assemblage. It took a good long while compared to most of my projects, but I got it done, this vision in my head. And that's satisfying.
