As I was pulling weeds over this past weekend I stumbled across this bug working hard at attacking this little bit of food for himself. It's my first "bug" photo. I promise I won't show you to many of these. Although they are fun to shoot, I do feel they are a bit predictable. I generally like to show you something unpredictable.
Today I'll be busy mixing up big batches of concrete for my art. My fireballs have been selling like crazy and my new fountain design has been a hit. Thanks you to everyone who has purchased and has shown and interest so far this year! Today I'll be finishing up few new bowls. Watch for photos of them coming this week. If interested in information on purchasing any of my concrete or photos email me for information.
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.
