ABSTRACT SMOKE #1, Edit F on 22 August 2019, aka, VIPER, from the Smoke-Art Photography Series and an Epiphany

I just discovered a quote by one of my favourite artists (Vincent Van Gogh), which so clearly, without a doubt sums up my online existence, and sharing my work with the Internet World for these last (at least, and even more than) 13 years.

Without further ado, here’s the quote by Van Gogh:

“A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke”

― Vincent Van Gogh


How true! I see it fits my “Online life” so well, literally and figuratively. I am also, “a wisp of smoke” in the competitive Internet Art World game, or business, or maybe it is an unholy BATTLE!

When I read the quote, I was thinking,

“Holy F§©¦«! Yeah…..that sums it up.”

I’m not happy about it, of course. However, maybe there is much less ‘liking’ (yeap) and enthusiasm for my Abstract Photography Style(s) than I thought. Yet….I have not given up hope (Oh boy! Positive-Nawfal!) I continue to fight on, and I continue to design my images and offer fine art photographs for sale at Imagekind (and other places), where I currently have a collection of 2,580+ photographs.

One Abstract Photographer recently told me, “There is an audience for every style of Photography.” I knew that already, but it was good to hear it again from someone else.

☆ Anyway—Here’s the Link for my Gallery at Imagekind:

☆ AND, even though Van Gogh was personally challenged with many horrible “difficulties”, he continued on, and created some of the most well-known, priceless art pieces that exist today. It is too bad Van Gogh never lived long enough to see his work appreciated, loved, and coveted by the world’s art collectors. I can only hope for a fraction of Van Gogh’s eventual success (yeah……there’s Positive-Nawfal again!) I can dream, right! Well, no-one can f△©king stop me anyway! So I move forward and onward with or without “passers-by”!

Series Description:
These artworks are photo-creations from Nawfal Johnson’s original paintings, smoke photography, and also, image creations from photographs captured of decaying urban walls. “Disorderly-Order“, the name of this series, has two distinct meanings. One, there is a method (Order) to the madness (Disorder) in the execution of these artworks. Two, the artist is taking a “more orderly” painting, or a fragment of an urban wall (photographed), or smoke-art photographs, and then turning it up-side-down, and inside-out, to get to the final photographic art representation. The disorderly characteristics from within the work are equal to the orderly nature of the design, for which the works are designed. The Photographist is working from that natural law of nature, which states that “No new matter is created in the Universe.” Thus, these are ‘two-steps’ artwork creations—The first-step is creating a painting (or photographing an urban still-life of a decaying wall, or capturing a smoke still-life); and then, the second-step is taking the original creation and designing a final art photograph using the “matter”, or contents, of the original photographs.

I just switched (again) to a new theme…

I will switch themes until doomsday – or, until I find one I like better…

I just switched (again) to a new theme – I’m just finding it difficult to get a look that displays my work to my satisfaction, and offers a way for visitors to easily follow me.
