I almost stepped right on this patch of fungus the other day! I'm not sure what it is or why it grew there. It's a well ventilated area with plenty of sun. It's amazing to see the intricacy of how it grew around each blade of grass. I just love the soft grey colors! This second photo comes from the center of my hibiscus plant. Wow! How delicate! When you see these magnificent flowers in bloom you can't miss them, but you could miss this perfect part right in the center. It's suppose to be a rainy day today, but when that sun comes out take a bit of time to find these not so obvious beautiful specks in your world.
Now, off to more concrete art. Only two more of those large planters to go!
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.
