Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
I mostly write and make the occasional bit of digital art.

I'm fascinated by three things: that which exists within the universe; that which exists beyond; and that which might exist.

One of my kids graduated from college in December, 2008, is helping her husband run a business, and both have a two-year-old keeping them busy; another is a cartoonist; #3 daughter is a writer; my son works at a discount store, and is developing a digital game with #3 and #1 daughters.

Personal Quote: 'That's interesting.'
Christmas Toy Store by Norski Watching, 2014 by Norski A Thanksgiving Haven by Norski On the Halloween Express by Norski Cosmic Coffee Cup by Norski Desk Duty by Norski Internet Friends by Norski I've seen a few Journal entries folks wrote, summarizing what they accomplish in 2017 and hope to do in 2018.

It's late, I really should try to sleep: so I'll write this instead. But my wife would remind me of the nature of time, why acknowledging reality is a good idea, and suchlike. So I'll make this brief. Besides, I wasn't taking notes, and I'm not really sure what happened in 2017.

Last year was a rough one for my household, and me. Various medical issues, a few of them emergencies, that sort of thing. That may or may not explain why depression and other glitches I've enjoyed - make that experienced - for most of my life made December a particularly hard one for me.

I've talked about that on my blog: "The Magi, Meds and me" > Getting Weird at Chistmas and "Disorders, Decisions" > "Decisions." Be aware, if you follow the links, that I'm a Catholic and take my faith seriously. But I try to avoid being humorless, boring, or annoying - - - and certainly not rabidly fanatical.

Young Doctor Mizuno: Newsprint Version by Norski But rabid fanatics probably think they're sane and everyone else is crazy, so what do I know? (I have no idea what Young Doctor Mizuno is doing there.)

Anyway, I'd been away from visual art - doing it, that is - for some time. These images take time to get ready. I'm mostly a writer, give myself deadlines for that so I do *something,* and time I spend making images isn't spent researching and writing.

Besides, I had a very serious crisis of confidence - more like unpleasant surprise - when my wife pointed out something about an ongoing project that I'd missed, a matter of perceptions and I'll leave it at that.

She was right, I should have spotted the matter and changed direction a lot earlier, and missing the SNAFU really shook me up. That was probably in 2016. Like I said, I hadn't been taking notes. Getting over that took time, and it took me time to find the virtual camera I carry with me when I let my mind's eye off the leash. Metaphorically speaking.

Cosmic Coffee Cup by Norski I don't know if I'll match the 'one new piece each week' schedule I had at one point. I do, however, have a few pictures in various stages of incompleteness; so one of them should show up eventually. Meanwhile, I'm checking in almost daily and seeing what other folks are creating. That's fun.

Next year I hope to finish and upload at least a few new images, keep up my writing, and enjoy this wonder-filled universe.

Norski has started a donation pool!
65 / 2,001
Your reason for donating points - - - is something you must decide for yourself.

Maybe it's the warm feeling you get when giving. Maybe you think encouraging me is a good idea. Maybe your reason is something completely different.

My reason for wanting points? Eventually, I hope to have enough to purchase a print from's Marketplace.

Why 2,001 as a goal? "2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968) is among my favorite films: and it seemed like a reasonable number as a goal, for now.

You must be logged in to donate.

Thank you for adding "Rock Balancing" to your favorites. In my wild and impetuous youth I spent one summer studying with Group of Buddhist monks. one of the many thing they taught me was Rock Balancing. I have done it on and off ever since. Regrettable Joanne's heath got so bad that I did  not do it at all the last 15 years of her life. I am happy to be back.

My friend and I are planing to go back Monday. Among other things we are going to dig clay…

I want to try to pit fire potter like borger cord marked pottery  
Norski Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for the link. That's a good introduction to cordmarked pottery. A remarkable technology - - - and I was interested that North Americans developed the equivalent of amphora.

The conventional assumption, I would guess, is that folks developed the same 'pointed bottom' storage vessel independently. That's likely enough true. But I wouldn't be surprised if we eventually learn that traders crossed the Atlantic. The 'east-to-west' spread of the North American form suggest that if the idea is an import, it came from the Atlantic trade.

Fascinating details. Thanks again.
