THE 49-PROJECT by Nawfal Johnson

THE 49-PROJECT by Nawfal Johnson

THE 49-PROJECT, is a Birthday Project that I have done now, for the third time. I did a 45-Project; a 48-PROJECT, and now, THE 49-PROJECT. The images designed, were created over a 4-hour period on 2 March 2014, on my 49th Birthday – the 4-hour time limit was self-imposed, which put the pressure on me a bit to get it done! The ideal is to design and create the same number of images that correspond to my years of age, in this case, 49. It was a difficult task. I did not photograph anything new for this collection. However, all the images in this project series are new creations made with pieces and parts of photographs that I have created in the past. Therefore, these are all new art photographs.  I completed the 49 art photographs in 3-Hours and 58-minutes.  

Matisse from SFMOMA!

Matisse Exhibition at SFMOMA

November 9, 2013 – September 7, 2014
Well, I wish I could go – I am sure it would be awesome.
Victoria, [Victoria Kloch – is a BRILLIANT Artist – see her work HERE! ] … If you go to see this show, please let me know how it was.  I think it would be one of those “WOW” moments to see so many Matisse paintings in one place.
Matisse was a big influence on the work of many Abstract Expressionists – the work of painters who I am highly respectful of, and who, in their way have influenced my way of designing my abstract photographs.  Piet Mondrian (Dutch, 1872–1944) [You can see Mondrian’s work at the MoMA website  http://www.moma.org/collection/artist.php?artist_id=4057 ]; Mark Rothko at MoMA and the Rothko Chapel in Houston, TX (USA)  ; and, Jackson Pollock, whose work I was fortunate enough to see in person, at one of my FAVORITE Art Museums, the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska.  In their permanent collection they have Pollock’s 1947, “Galaxy”Seeing that work, long ago, was one of the influences that pushed me to develop an “abstract way of seeing things.”
I have more, much more work that I think I need to look at, and then, publish here at my blog.  That’s all for now – I should get back to some other work now.  Thanks for visiting my Photography-Blog, I appreciate your “Likes” and your comments.
It is very strange, but the cloud of pigments in my right eye swim around in there and sometimes a cloud of pigments wants to wade in my eye fluid, RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY EYE’S LENS!  It is quite frustrating because it causes my vision to turn a bit foggy.  Nevertheless, when it happens, I then have to quickly move my eyes around to attempt to get the cloudiest clouds to move somewhere else.  This is, indeed, troublesome, but manageable so far.

Finally Got Something to Load Properly into my Saatchi Gallery – Yeah!

Finally Got Something to Load Properly into my Saatchi Gallery – Yeah!

Well, it’s not the only time I’ve gotten something to load properly into my Saatchi Online Gallery; however, I’ve had considerable issues getting perfectly good (according to their image guidelines) files to upload.  I’ve gotten a lot of messages like, “There’s no print options for this image…” or something to that effect.  BUT, thankfully, this art piece uploaded, and THERE ARE PRINT OPTION AVAILABLE IN MY PRINT GALLERY, @ SAATCHI ONLINE.  Maybe the issue is fixed.  Maybe I was the only one having issues with uploading image files?  I don’t know.  I just hope I continue to have luck uploading artwork to my SAATCHI ONLINE Art Gallery.  L8R!
