I had two resisting subjects the other day. But I finally won and took their picture although they only gave me one shot. An eye is a fascinating part of the body and I wanted to check to see how close my macro lens could get. These two eyes are about 25 years a part. Can you tell which eye is older? I definitely can tell they are related! I think I may try to sculpt a concrete eye and incoorporate it in an art piece. Hmmm...that could look great and be fun as part of a fountain!
My fountain, bird bath, urban flowers, and some new bowls will be delivered to Wealthy at Charles this week! Any questions? Just email me!
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.
