Well, I'm pretty sure I'll have the perfect back drop for some beautiful art! After a busy few weeks, I've settled in. Yesterday I was finally able to take a portion of the day off to recuperate and appreciate what I have including this amazing backdrop and view around me.
Because I don't have access to a studio to do my concrete sculpture right now, I'll be concentrating on my painting and my photography. Next week I plan on starting my first painting. I think I may even take progress photos each day or two and post them. I'll also continue to find those special organic photo moments for my canvases.
Wealthy at Charles has been very accommodating with my art during this transition. They have both my paintings and photo canvases available in their store (located on Wealthy Street just west of Eastern). I was able to provide quite a few concrete art pieces before my studio closed, so don't miss out on those also available there.
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.
