Have you ever been right on the edge, almost over the top, to your limit? I'm there!
At first I was sleeping very good because I was so tired after a busy day. Now I think I'm just a little too busy and now I'm not sleeping well. Do you ever wake up and think, "Oh, I need to do that!"...or "Oh, I shouldn't have done that!" I've been doing that several times during the night (yawn!). It becomes this huge concern that you can't fall back to sleep. I then wake up in the morning and think what a waste of a good night sleep. I need to stop that! It's not like you can do anything about it at 2am, 3am or 4am. in the morning anyway.
My "to do" list is long again today, including an unexpected concrete order and finishing some of my Urban Flowers. I do hope I will be able to take a quick peaceful break on this beautiful sunny day to catch even a few more photos like these.
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.
