I'll need another storm this month...
We had a great lightening show here last night! I sat outside for quite a while trying to catch a few of those powerful bolts of lightening striking down on the lake. I finally gave up after checking my camera to see if I was fast enough, or if even my camera was good enough to catch those moments.
This morning however I checked my photos again on my computer and was very surprised to have found these two. I know they 're not that amazing, but they are my first try. That's why I am saying, "At least one more storm this month...please?"
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.
