Exploring Depth, Light, and Love, Evolution Through Art, and Newberry Color Theory are fairly close to publishing stages. The color theory one is ready in a few days to see a printed copy. The 250 page Evolution is with the editor now, after a revision of two chapters. And Exploring awaits an updated narrative, but the image content and commentary is done.
They corral a broad scope of art from creating passionate works, to an artistic perspective on evolution through art, both art historically and personally, and a thesis color theory, after four and half decades of aesthetic practice and research.
It is said that art is the technology of the soul and I believe the books will go a long way in justifying that statement. In other words, we have an art gene in which emotion, thought, and senses communicate as a chorus. It is through art we get to experience that synergy, and consequently it fuels our personal evolution.
I have looked into publishers and I have also taken out the business name, Idyllwild Books, for self=publishing. I am treating the books like paintings, the number one priority is to bring them into existence.
