This image of a nautilus is sandwiched between two layers of plexiglass to protect it from moisture around the pool. The print is part of a 20 print collection permanently installed at the Grand Tier across from Lincoln Center on the upper west side of New York city.
This post-war 30 story high-rise was designed by famed architect Costas Kondylis, with interior spaces designed by renowned American Designer John Saladino.
Sandwiching the image between two layers of plexiglass made it possible to safely display the print in this moist environment. There are a number of solutions for displaying prints in challenging environmental conditions.

The Covid-19 Pandemic has affected the way we communicate. Millions of people are using apps like Zoom, Facetime, Google Meet, Skype, etc. Many users are sitting in front of bookshelves, doors, windows and a range of objects that draw attention away from you and distract.
Consider upping your online presence and go professional. Select an image that can be printed on a removable peel and stick wall mural.
Contact me to find a beautiful affordable background. The print can be modest in size to fit behind you when online or it can be wall paper that covers an entire wall.
When you want or need to change the image simply peel it away from the wall (leaving no marks or damage to the wall) roll it up to use another time. Then attach the new print.

Sulfur is a by-product of oil refining and gas production. This mountain of sulfur was at the Hess refinery in St. Croix, US V.I.. The way that certain areas of the sulfur retained moisture and others dried combined with the way the sulfur pellets moved created this beautiful abstraction and range of rich color.
Subjects from the world of industry offer a surprising collection of strong graphic and colorful images which bring surprising energy into a space. When the subject is abstracted as it is here the result can introduce ambiguity which activates the imagination and invites your own interpretation. Because of the elemental nature of the shapes and the richness of the color the image can be appreciated for its intrinsic beauty.

Art of industrial subjects used as strong graphic images within an interior space.
Industry is built using engineering design. I’ve always appreciated the elegance of design be it in fine art drawings, fashion, or industrial design. Often the clearer the concept the cleaner the design. Long ago the Shakers and Danish designers illustrated that truth.
This image is a sonar mapping image of the floor of the Gulf of Mexico identifying were there are voids in the earth, where there is crude oil and where there is natural gas.
Once again when we turn our attention to nature we often see elegant design and beauty.

Industry an unexpected source of art
Technological limitations with the iPhone11Pro camera results in an opportunity to discover new expressions in an image. This image for example was made after dusk in low light. Phone cameras have a challenge recording images in low light conditions. This image of the dingy creates a mood that an exacting image made with my high end Nikon would not. The pixels are breaking up, the colors degraded, a technical issue called “noise” and there is a loss of sharpness. The result is that the image takes on a painterly look and creates a feeling that is moody and ambiguous.

This time of year Sarasota has dramatic skies. Beyond the the beauty of nature there is an opportunity to experience in an elemental way the energy of connection between heaven and earth. Sometimes the clouds are dark and foreboding and even then behind the darkness there is light. Taking time to be present and take in the moment can be a teaching. Nature is the source.

This is a time when our core is being shaken.
We are feeling scattered and out of balance. The babel of voices: words, words and more words, promising this and that is a crazy making cacophony. The tsunami of numbers numb us and threatens to dehumanize this dreadful situation.
“The death of one man: that is a catastrophe. Hundreds of thousands of deaths: that is a statistic”. Kurt Tucholsky, German Journalist/Pacifist 1932.
Seems that we are living in our own parable. A flu virus started in one place on the planet and within a short time it spread like a wildfire. Globalization is showing us how interconnected we are. Modes of travel make it possible for speedy transmission of a virus. Communication technology quickly spreads rumors and facts around the world. This creates more challenges and confusion. We try to sort things out, but this effort causes us more stress and leads to our feeling more out of balance. This is the dark side to our interconnectivity.
We do not have to be victims of this condition. Within us is the ability to regulate these influences. This new order of globalization makes possible another way of being with positive potential. Perhaps as no other time in history is it clearer that we share a universal connection. The challenge is, how can we find healthy ways to bring our relationships into balance?
Business leaders, companies, and politicians, do not and will not have the answer to this challenge.
The answer is simple and lies inside each of us. Do we want to live in a more aware and respectful way? Will we respect the laws of nature and each other? Will we have the desire to find stillness in the core of our being and create balance? Time will tell. As has happened in the past across many civilizations there comes a time when continuing to live in the same way no longer works, the order we perceive becomes shattered and out of balance.
If we take time to look within the current situation we’ll discover a light shining in this darkness that illuminates a new way. That light is our awareness, it is our respect for nature, each other and our shared unity.
Collectively we have created a globalized economy with profound interconnectivity and complexity. Surely we have the capacity to turn our abilities of intellect, calculation, and management of resources toward the goal of achieving balance through conscious connectivity.
Our way of thinking does not cause calamities like the Covid-19 pandemic. The spread of the virus seems to be caused by international travel, lack of effective preventative actions: staying at home, distancing and sanitizing.
Understanding the link between our being and behavior can help us reset so we can live in a balanced way. Our way of thinking and being can help diminish disorders like the Covid-19 virus and future disruptions.
The individual rocks in the first image were organized with care, intention, and the idea of finding a still point whereby connection between each rock brings the group into balance. This metaphor may help us find a new way of being, individually and collectively. How can we live in relationship in a way that we support each other? How do we strengthen that still point within our core and create a balanced way of being individually and collectively?
There is no one answer, no single ideology. There will be many answers. What will organize the variety of ideas and connect them in a meaningful way is a new, more conscious way of being. The way we are, our being, will inform our behavior. As the age old cliche says, “Change starts with ‘me’.”
I’ve taken time to reflect on these ideas. Looking beyond the damage and death caused by Covid-19, I see an opportunity to reevaluate and understand how we got out of balance. By acknowledging that the way we are living together on the planet is out of balance, we can start a process of finding balance within our individual lives, and together.
Here are a few people I’ve found helpful as I search for balance in my life. They are offering knowledge and insights to us all for free. You may have resources you find helpful as you evolve toward a balanced way of living. I invite you to share them with me and I’ll repost them on this blog so we all may benefit. Thank you, Wayne Eastep

The connection between Wayne Foster and the “guide-dog to be” puppy is strong in this portrait. When a connection between the person and the focus of their attention is established an essential energy within begins to move. That energy and connection can be seen and felt. This connection and energy is the potential power of a portrait. When we see this alchemy we feel an emotional response and our own connection to the person in the portrait is established.

Family portraits serve many purposes; illustrating the relationships between family members, marking a point in time, and showing the personalities of each person in the family.
No wonder when a natural disaster happens people universally search through the rubble to find family portraits which serve as a memory. It is axiomatic of the human condition that we are connected to memory.
