I found this one tulip just waiting for me to take its picture. This photo reminds me that sometimes simple is just better. You can't see the inside which when it becomes warm and sunny displays a beautiful pattern with several colors on the inside. It's one bright deep pink color with it's petals folded over each other perfectly present a perfect tulip. The background with it's blurred fresh green hues and colors stages this one simple tulip perfectly.
Today this photo is reminding me that I am only going to try to finish my "to do" list. Really...will it matter if I leave those extras until tomorrow or even next week?
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.
