I'm not going apologize for my many posts of the sunset. I was just telling someone yesterday who commented on seeing my photos, that I just can't help myself. Each one is so beautiful! I think it's about trying to capture the whole view and wanting to share with everyone what I see. I told her that every time I take a photo of the sunset I'm just a bit disappointed. I just can't quite get the whole picture. This time the wind was strong causing the waves to be so wild. What a contrast between waves that seems to be so mad and the calmness of the beautiful sun. It was so windy it was hard to hold my camera still!
I may have to paint a few abstract paintings on sunsets, water and waves.
Have a great week everyone and look all around for the beautiful colors around you.
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.
