Surreal Abstract Frog Skull With Lines – Black and White

Frog skull with angular geometric lines. Surreal abstract art in black and white by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Aphelion Black.

This is the black and white version of Aphelion. (The black in the title being indicative of that, as per my habit of appending the word black or gray onto original titles for black and white variations.)

This composition stemmed from an idea that existed in rough draft form for at least a year. Though it evolved so radically that the rough draft really continues to exist separately, maybe still to be developed. Or deleted.

That’s the tough question—I’ve made use of quite a few old ideas that were initially rejected. Occasionally time gifts perspective and new ideas, enabling failures to finally bloom. Which necessitate care in deciding whether to delete an idea or not. With unlimited storage space I might keep them all, but my files are rarely less than half a gigabyte.

This has the same base frog skull photo as Chalice and Black Chalice.
