It's spring! Birds are flying north. People are flying south. I flew west and found these birds!
I normally don't seriously take photos of birds or animals. I usually prefer nature and it's organic color and texture. This time however I couldn't resist these active and unique birds on the shores of the Pacific. It was though these birds were waiting for me. They posed for me as well as took off on my time. My most favorite was watching the little birds all lined up out running the waves. It's amazing to me that they always could.
I hope you enjoy these bird photos. I sure fell in love with them and this big ocean. If you like birds and would like a photo, please mail me for information.
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.
