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.
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.
