The predictable butterfly. Got one with my camera.
Theses butterflies were "blooming" this passed weekend as well as these flowers. I was sitting with my afternoon coffee in the warm sun and realized I had about 5 of these beauties flying around me. I decided to grab my camera and try to catch a close up of one of them. Phew...that took a while! I finally had one that sat for a while and seemed to want to pose for me. The sun was just right creating lots of shadow and pretty light on each surface.
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.
