“The Metaphysical Gardener’s Guide, Volume 11: Psychedelic Sunflower Art for Day Trippers” High Vibrational Plant Life as seen through the kaliedoscope of Co-Creative Randomness.

I’ve always loved sunflowers. I used to be in the habit of planting them from seed every year. The squirrels of the neighborhood loved me for my generosity. And I was quite entertained by their ability to remove seeds from the big heads of the sunflowers. I was recently reminded of sunflowers by Zengirl in a letter she wrote to me in which she mentioned getting some at the market. That was all I needed, lol… off to sunflower land I went.

The results, like all the plant based art, is quite the psychedelic treat. I’ve come to look at it as the life energy of the plants coming through. It is different from the spray blasted work. Not better. Not worse. Just different in feel. Flowers have that high vibrational thing going. There’s an energy, and according to a PBS documentary I watched recently, an intelligence too. I don’t know about you, but I’m a believer.

And yes, it is a random thing at work here. Actually several elements of randomness come into play. From the original photographs which I try and take quickly and with odd angles, to the computer manipulation process. And sometimes, well sometimes I just close my eyes. And the Goddess never fails to reveal something to me. Something divine. Something sublime. And for that, I remain a grateful maker of things and her humble servant.

Let’s get to some visual hallucinatory things… I decided to show these in “pairs” as I used two distinctly different manipulations on each of the photographs. The results are quite different and help to show how randomness and co-creativity plays such a large part in the work…
