Color, Texture, Light: Great ingredients for photos.
Every so often I get lucky enough to have just the right natural light to enhance both the colors and texture of my photos. Here are two great examples. These two photos are taken on different days but in the evening. The sun reflected on most every spot to not only highlight everything but gave a bright yellow hue over each surface.
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.
