Went for a run on the beach...
...and had a little fun with Instagram. I stopped a few times on my run to take a few photos with my phone. I don't like carrying anything when on a run, but I often find something that catches my eye and am bummed when I can't catch that photo.
Last night was absolutely beautiful! I ended my run running through the dunes then walking at the end along the lake shore. What a great way to end the the day.
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.
