TOPIC & INSPIRATION:
I am both sad and in the background, happy. These are my LAST TWO NOKIBA Joss-Sticks. They are actually antiques, that is, if antiques are considered as an object 25-years old. These joss-sticks are approximately 25-years, 5-months old. That is 9284 days! That is 802,137,600 seconds old!

I bought these joss-sticks in 1988, when I was in Sakura, Japan. These joss-sticks hold some sentimental value to me, and I am sad that I now only have one joss-stick – one of the joss-sticks is burning in this photo.

These are the MOST Beautiful smelling joss-sticks I have ever experienced – they are like smelling a bouquet of wild flowers.

These are NOKIBA JOSS-STICKS, and they were made by SHOYEIDO & CO., LTD, in Kyoto, Japan.

Well, NOW THERE IS ONE!

I may keep this single joss-stick and not burn it. As you can clearly tell, I have been quite conservative in my use of these joss-sticks because they have been with me for over 25-years. Maybe someday I will return to Japan, and maybe I will visit Sakura again. I hope to…and when I do, I will search for another box of NOKIBA Joss-Sticks. They are my favorite.

Eighteen, No. 4, Edit D, Abstract Expressionism Photography

Eighteen, No. 4, Edit D, Abstract Expressionism Photography

Title: “Eighteen, No. 4, Edit D.”
Creation Year / Mon / Day: 2014 / 01 / 20.
Series: EIGHTEEN.
Series Year: 2014.
Style: Abstract Expressionism Photography.
Note: The initial photographs for this fine art series, were designed on January 18, 2014; thus, I have decided that “EIGHTEEN” would be the name of this series, and the titles of each photographic artwork in this series. The “EIGHTEEN” series, art pieces all initially came from photographs of my abstract expressionism, acrylic, paintings. The paintings in my art photographs are never the end of the work: The paintings are only a means to an end. The ‘end’ is always the finished abstract art photograph. In many cases, the painting does not survive.
I have been told that there is a butterfly figure in this artwork: Yes, there could be a butterfly in this artwork…there are lots of things in the EIGHTEEN Series.
