I have to admit this time, although beautiful in color, these bugs kind of grossed me out. But in macro mode I couldn't stop looking at their detail and color! There was a whole bunch of them (I think they just hatched). The color of these bugs caught my eye. I mean who can't be drawn to the color orange in the summer. That color just pops right out at you especially against these beautiful green leaves!
Does anyone know what these are?
I was taking these photos yesterday during my break time. I will have a three tiered concrete fountain ready this week to show you and I'm working on two new designs for concrete table top fountains.
If you have any interest in purchasing any of my photos or concrete pieces, please email me for prices and 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.
