Sometimes if you just look, nature can do a better job with creating a great sculpture than what we could ever do. As the sand froze in this photo the waves came and washed the sand below the freeze line. How pretty is this?
Examples like this make me anxious to begin my concrete art again! First though...I have to finish my Alzheimer's project. Yes, this series is still in the works and I'm working hard at finishing it. Second...it would help to have a studio. This will happen too. I just don't have a date for that one yet.
I'll keep you informed! Do you have any examples of natures sculptures?
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.
