Details! Even in the middle of the winter, every little detail is right there for us to explore. This past weekend was a gift. I went out several times to take a walk and explore. Here are three examples from one walk.
The colors and textures of last years season is so evident in these photos. It's as each plant has a story. Was it a healthy season or one where disease took place (from either tiny bugs, lack of water or too much heat).
Take advantage of these next few mild days. Go exploring.
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.
