I kind of have this thing for bugs and insects, or as my daughter would say the little guys!
I was out in the rain yesterday looking for some cool shots of rain and flowers. What a great contrast between a cool rainy summer day and the freshness and beauty of flower color. Everything was so drenched with moisture that I was surprises to find this tiny insect not under a leaf taking cover but sitting on top. He must have been thirsty. All this photo is not quite as sharp as I would like, I was so amazed at the intricacy and detail of his head. I definitely wanted to show you this.
Today I hope to complete my next fireball table. This one is already spoken for, but I will be making more, so email me if you are interested.
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.
