I kind of feel like I had a mini vacation this past weekend. Friday I was lucky enough to spend a whole day at the beach. I mean the whole day. From morning until sunset. My youngest daughter and I spent the whole day at our favorite beach with our favorite snacks and refreshing drinks. We then made it into town late into the day to pick up a yummy pizza with a bit of wine and then headed back out to watch the sun set. It was a wonderful day!!! Saturday I no agenda, spent a few hours with both daughters and a night out with fun friends. Yesterday was of course my husbands day, but with the whole family with every one's help it was another relaxing day! Yep I got it, I'm relaxed and refreshed!
And...now that I had these three days of not working I now need to catch up. I have a list: more concrete chunky bowls (these seem to be popular again); two concrete water fountains to finish; a concrete fireball table to finish, an order for a concrete birdbath, and I'll be rapping up my new concrete table top fountain design. Whew!!!
I'll be posting a picture of these concrete designs as I get them done.
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
