I am caught right in the middle of a home (or should I say no home...yet), and my art. As I have said before I have three art mediums. Photography, abstract painting and concrete art and sculpture. I have not had a studio since last fall so I've spent the winter painting and have also continued my photography. My paintings are almost finished, but I am unable to work on my concrete art, so some frustration as set in.
This morning I took a walk with my camera. The rain had stopped. The natural light was just about perfect. The smell of the clean air, fresh green leaves that had been washed by the rain, the chirping birds renewed and lifted my spirits!
We so have a plan. A new home and studio is around the corner (although it will be a long corner). I'll be hopefully be able to begin pouring the cement to bring you new art pieces soon.
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.
