First came a bat...
A bat attacked our builder yesterday...then came this baby pheasant? hen? We're not really sure of what it is. (Anyone have an idea of what this is?) We do however think it may have or had a home. This little one was very friendly, almost annoying following us all around. She/he was very attracted to my blue toe nail polish.
The good news is my art studio will get a floor this week. Although it will not be finished yet, I will have a clean level floor to get started. My first concrete design will be the fireplace. It's framed and ready to go. For those of you waiting for a few new pieces of concrete art, don't worry I'll be creating in between the curing stages. So.....yes art will be happening again. I'm so excited to begin again.
I am now also realizing our new homestead will be bringing us a few surprises. Needless to say, I told our builder to make sure he seals everything very well. I'm not fond of bats!
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.
