An Art Form - Winter to Spring!
What a great time of year. Just as we are (yes, me too), trying to get rid of our seasonal colds and viruses, the season of spring is trying get rid of winter. It felt like that here yesterday. It started out as a cold rainy day and then turned to complete sunshine with a temperature of fifty three degrees! The birds were even singing. It felt like spring! Later in the day winter had to come back rolling in showing it's face. Here are three photos showing the sunshine trying very hard to come through the dark nasty clouds of winter.
What a powerful this weather system. Eventually winter won. The wind, rain and ice came.
Soon spring will win!
These weather systems are a possibility for my next painting after my Alzheimer's Series is finished. I'm finishing the last one in the series now.
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.
