New photography at the homestead.
Wow! I think this has been the longest stretch between posts on my blog! Needless to say it has been both busy and fun building a new homestead and a new art studio.
The other day I took some time to walk on our two acres with my camera. It was a very hot day so a short walk was perfect. It never ceases to amaze me that when I take a bit of time to look and listen I can find these tiny glimpses of nature's treasures. These organic textures are my favorite to capture. I hope to decide on one that I capture and enlarge it for my home. I'll be sure to show that when I'm done!
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.
