These images are available, now, at Art166.com.
Look for them in the “Profondo Rosso” gallery.
For the last few days, I haven't blogged, haven't responded to comments (which, of course, would lead to blog-surfing!), and, honestly!, have not been goofing off!
What I have been doing, is tweaking and finishing some new images, and finally loading up and unveiling my new "Profondo Rosso" gallery over at Art166.com!
This is a "tribute" gallery, in honor of one of my very favorites movies: "Deep Red" (released in Europe as "Profondo rosso"). Deep Red is an amazing, surreal, horror/thriller written and directed by Dario Argento and starring the late, wonderful, David Hemmings.
I've seen this movie countless times (certainly more than 100) and still watch it whenever the mood strikes me. About a year ago, in the middle of a "Deep Red" night (after midnight -- the movie on, the lights off, a pack of Red Vines and a cold bottle of water for sustenance), I had the (bright?) idea of creating a collection of very red images in honor of the movie's title. After months of fits and starts, and several dozen finished pieces later, the "Profondo Rosso"
gallery is finally a "Go!"
New images will be added, weekly, as long as my existing supply holds out, or while my red muse allows me to produce them. Now, on to the Next Big Project! (More on that in a week or two.)
Note: All of my red images are general-populace-friendly. The movie, however, is not for the faint of heart. Don't say I didn't warn you!

So, what's one of your favorite movies? Has watching it ever inspired you to action? Were the results of such action a good thing, or a "what-was-I-thinking???" thing?
