  1. Hi! I’m particularly drawn to your landscape drawings. Occasionally I use artwork found on the web as inspiration/illustration for some poetic idea. I always give credit and linkback info when doing this? Do you mind if I keep some of your images in mind for this purpose? You can see some examples here:

    • Thank you! Landscapes are the heart of this website and my major inspiration, I am obsessed with depicting landscapes in every form and medium I can control! I hope to finish a digital art project depicting various landscapes soon and share it with you. Thanks for your appreciation!

        • Thanks! I estimate it may take upwards of a year or two, because of the programming involved, but I hope sooner!

          I’ve always been obsessed with landscapes, particularly trees because I experienced a profound sense of alienation from the land/earth/nature. I come from a family of landowners and farmers who quite literally lived off the land, then in my early childhood, my family abruptly moved and continued moving throughout the US due to economic hardships. To go from a sense of belonging and intimacy with the land to being an alien and outsider many times over has been a continual source of inspiration (and struggle) for me that I hope I can resolve somehow through my work.

          It feels great to be able to share these explorations with you!

        • I think I sensed a feeling of longing in your landscapes, do you think that sounds relevant, given your experience of removal from belonging and of alienation? For myself, and in my work, there’s a fascination with the conflict between belonging and being an outsider. I enjoy both at different times but struggle with them equally. At best, the conflict keeps me on my toes and I cant quite imagine life any other way 😛

          Me too, I’m so grateful to share in this journey with you 🙂

          Take care – Abraham
