After a long day...
After a long day of mixing more concrete and making decisions I sat ton the front steps of the Steenholdt homestead talking to my younger daughter on the phone about her day. As I sat there my eyes drifted to this late summer dandelion (which didn't belong in the garden). It really was a very tiny flower set against several orange impatients. This photo doesn't show the size accurately when taken as a macro photo.
What a perfect backdrop for the delicate white seed heads!
I'll be looking out for more treasured photos to share in the next few weeks.
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.
