Wow! What a morning! I have so much to get done. I have two paintings under way and I really need to consentrate and finish them. But this morning I just couldn't hold myself back. This beautiful moon hanging over the water this morning put a big smile on my face. It was perfect!
It's pretty cool right now as far as the timimg of the moon setting and the sun rising. I can really sense and almost see it happen. The moon sets in the west and then I look to the east and there is the sun. This morning as I finally drew myself away from staring at the moon, I packed up and headed out to get a better glimpse of the sunrise. The bottom three photos are the best of my morning. Can you believe that it is January? The light from the sun gave these landscapes a November look.
The colors and light amaze me. What a great morning!
It's time to move on with my day...a run and then hopefully I'll finish one of my paintings.
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.
