I don't have finished concrete art pieces to show you yet this week because I am in the middle of mixing up batch after batch of concrete, pouring it into fireballs and fountains! I've poured a bunch of fireballs and they should be ready by late tomorrow! I'll be finishing up my mold for two new fountain designs and hopefully pouring those later today and tomorrow.
Notice the photo below! This photo that I took is amazing to me for two reasons. When I took this photo, I took it because of the colors and the way the early morning sun light was playing on those colors. What I didn't notice until I checked them out on my computer, was the brown and gray organic plant (or maybe a type of fungus) growth near the bottom of this photo. What a delicate and beautiful surprise!!! I love surprises in my art. In almost each piece of concrete art I create I like to include a surprise. That's the first reason! The second reason is when I do find an organic surprise as this, it inspires me to incorporate these patterns in one or more of my future art pieces.
Sometime these surprised are planned, but most times these surprises are not, and that is exactly what makes my whole art process fun and also makes me keep going. The possibilities are endless!
Are you interested in my concrete art, photography or abstract canvases? Email me so I can give you more information!
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.
