Progress: Alzheimer's Disease - Middle Stage
Wow! This has taken longer than I thought it would. I finally finished placing paint on all of these small cells. Once all the color is down the fun part begins. I'm so close! I love adding the layers of color to make the painting pop! Look for the surprise color coming in this painting soon. It's not my color choice, it's the real authentic color given to me when looking through my lens.
It's quite revealing experiencing the cycle of nature and its seasons and how that relates to our own lives. More about that later. I just hope this Alzheimer's series will help you realize how precious life is.
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.
