I just name a file 8-1, as in August 1. Wow, I better get my act together, it's September all ready! What a summer it has been and what an even bigger fall ahead. I love fall the smells, the colors and the crisp air. It makes me motivated and that is exactly what I'll need to be. I have lots to do!!!
I finally finished my last of four big concrete planters, and another table top water fountain. I also have three canvases to pick up. I can't wait to see them! All of these art pieces I'll be bringing to Wealthy at Charles tomorrow before the holiday weekend.
And as far as everything else, stay tuned. It's been a summer full of blessings and I'll be hopefully sharing some of them in the next few weeks.
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.
