A vacation = new inspiration!
Have you ever visited California? I just came back from a vacation full of renewed inspiration. I have been there twice before. This time I visited the middle of the state. This state has so much to see you would have to at least take six months to see it well.
I'm going to group my photos by subject over the next few days. Here is the first group. Five photo of plants gone macro. All of them in different stages of growth. I got to say the top one is my favorite. I just love the delicate simplicity and the soft colors. Which one is your favorite.
These photos can be purchased in most sizes. Email me for more information.
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.
