Spring on the lake. The count down continues...
Yep...it won't be long and I won't have the luxury of having instant access to this beautiful lake. These photos represent my favorite time of day here. Early morning. There is nothing like that first cup of coffee first thing in the morning sitting in silence for a time of meditation and prayer. This particular morning all I could hear were birds singing and the gentle sounds of the water coming up on shore. The warm sun coming up from the east casting shadows from the trees behind, and the sun creating a reflection on the lake to make the horizon line disappear blending the water and sky, made for a few beautiful photos this particular morning.
Enjoy your day where ever you are today. It's going to be a beautiful one here in West Michigan!
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.
