I love a good storm...
I probably stood outside a bit to long last night, but I did luck out with these two photos. I've been trying for the last several months to get a good shot of lightening. After checking out my photos, I am so pleased with these two. Especially the top one. It had appeared that when taking the top photo it was way to bright to show any detail. Was I wrong! What a powerful beauty! Needless to day I ran as fast as I could after I took this one. I felt the ground shake!
My count down continues....
Did I tell you my new studio will get underway next week? My concrete art will happen soon! I'm so ready!
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.
