All it takes is a few moments.
Yesterday began as a frustrating day. As you know we're building a new home/studio. When I arrived there yesterday. I chatted with one of the sub-contractors and was not happy at all with his selections. After several calls, I decided mid morning that I needed a well deserved break, so I grabbed my camera and went for a walk. It's amazing by taking only a moment you can find and capture such still photos of nature as these. God's beauty never ceases to amaze me.
Thankfully by the end of the day everything was back on track.
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.
