Savoring the little things...
The count down is here! This is the week! I'm treasuring every moment and every little thing I can!
I do the same thing when I have to leave any place. I don't like leaving any beautiful place. This place has been very beautiful. Amazing beyond words. It has been a special gift that I have been able to enjoy.
Here are two little things I found at just the right time in just the right light. I love how the light plays off every intricate part of this plant on the bottom photo.
Enjoy every part of your day! Life happens quickly!
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.
