Whew! What a full and great weekend!!! I must be getting older, I was so tired last night after everyone left. My weekend was full of family, friends, yard work, concrete, cooking....and fish!
Yesterday it included one more thing...a few minutes to capture some Easter color. These beauties are blooming in my yard so I didn't have to go far. Color has been hard to come by this spring. I treasure every glimpse I get lately. Enjoy these four photos as this week looks as though it will be another cloudy and rainy week. I am so ready for a whole week of sun. Is that to much to ask for?
My art often begins with a single photograph, a reflection of my eye—an eye that is deeply attracted to the texture, pattern, and shape found in nature. Whether it is the intricate pattern on the bark of a tree, the gentle curve of a woman’s breast, or the smooth, shiny shapes of pebbles along the shores of Lake Superior, I seek to display the wonder of creation in its purest form.
From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course. From photograph to canvas to sculpture, my hands become dirty, my fingernails caked with the mediums of art, and my heart becomes filled with joy as each piece blossoms, quite organically, into what it was meant to be.
I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it is not always obvious. But, quite possibly, the viewer will see in a new way and will feel a new appreciation for the organic elements around us.
