I'm getting a little anxious! I sat too much yesterday and I really need to start throwing some concrete around!
Ok, maybe a few too many photos today. But this is what happens when I sit to much. I'm also anxious and full of healthy anticipation.
Yesterday, I unexpectedly took care of my sick grandson. Don't get me wrong, I love watching him. But because he wasn't feeling well I spent a lot of time in the rocking chair.
I am also waiting for us to get started on a new home which includes my new studio. Oh yes! This will be wonderful, as I will have a much bigger space to create fresh new concrete art as well as continue to mix up some of my favorites. I can hardly wait!
Anyways, this is where these new photos came from. Last night I was so restless I went for a long walk by myself with my camera. I felt so much better after that walk. Here are a few of my favorites.
What new concrete art is coming? I can't wait to share that with you. I'll be sure to keep you posted.
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.
