Say ‘THANK YOU’ for God’s Sake!

Egg Reflections, v1, wp

Title: “Egg Reflections, v.1”
Creation Year: 2006

I hope that none of my readers fall into this category of humanity; however, if you have noticed yourself slipping into the “Abyss of Self-Absorbed Rudeness,” then pay attention!

I’m going to put it very bluntly here in this sentence: You MUST have the common, human decency of saying “THANK YOU” to anyone who shows you kindness, does something out of the ordinary, goes out of their way, goes above and beyond expectations, or does even the slightest, littlest thing for you out of the kindness of their heart, THAT THEY DID NOT EVEN NEED TO DO BECAUSE IT TOOK AWAY THEIR OWN PRECIOUS TIME TO DO!!! (three bloody exclamation points)


IF YOU DON’T SAY “Thank You” to these people, who I’ve described above, then you seriously need to be slapped, and then sent back to Civics Class for some reeducation!

There’s no damn excuse for NOT showing someone gratitude for their kindness!

The, “I was too busy” lame excuse goes well beyond my tolerance of idiotic, stupid, and unacceptable excuses: EVERYONE IS BUSY!!! HAVING NO EXCUSE GOES 10-NOTCHES BELOW RUDENESS!!!

If you think you are so much more important than everyone else, then you need to be enlightened and realize you are like everyone else, and you also need to show gratitude and thankfulness to others for things, even the smallest things they do for you…things that they need not even spend the time doing for you, but they do it because they have a kindness in them that you would NEVER understand (speaking to those who fall into the “Abyss of Self-Absorbed Rudeness” category of humanity).

So WAKE UP! No One is so important that they cannot show Gratitude.

Eggspressionism, v1-2008, Edit A

I’m a longtime fan of Jackson Pollock, and the Abstract Expressionism style. I’m a rather novice Abstract Expressionism painter myself, but I attempt anyway, and I love using unusual subjects to “throw” my paint, such as eggs.

I’ve only seen one Jackson Pollock work in person, and that is his “Galaxy”, owned by the Joslyn Art Museum (Omaha, NE), which is one of my favorite Pollock paintings, located at one of my favorite places, Joslyn.

I will probably cook this egg later, as it is a real egg, and that is why the 3D original will not last, but my Photography of my artwork, can last on its behalf.

Unlike much/most Abstract Expressionism work, I like a considerable amount of “black-space”. My works are also very small compared to the huge canvases used by the Abstract Expressionism Masters.

Balance Conceptual, v.4

Balance Conceptual, v.4, originally uploaded by fine-grain.

This is a concept photo I did today, and as the title states, it’s all about “balance.”

I wanted the image parts to connect in purpose and convey a similar message.

There are four main connections: 1) Color: Yellow and gold emphasized, and the black and white push those colors out into the foreground. 2) Shape: The shape of the egg and the shape of the spirit bubble are the same. 3) Line: The lines in the spirit level help gauge the viewers understanding of how level a surface, and these lines are augmented by the straight set of lines on the egg. And last but not least, 4) Balance: The spirit level bubble is approximately in the middle of the two lines; and, the egg is balanced on top of the level.

This image is cohesive because of the connections, and its ability to convey a specific message. In this case, the message is one of Science/Physics and can be applied to “Balance”, as well as, “Equilibrium.”
