Welcome to the world of creativity where imagination takes flight.
I love not only the creativity of these two pieces of art but celebrate the composition, the placing of these two pieces in such a way so that someone like me could see the art. Art begins with seeing. At least visual art does. Seeing the art that is around us, in the ever changing living canvas. Art is like a filter in which to see the world.
Even the same work of art can appear quite new and different when seen from another perspective, from another position.
Thanks so much to the sculptors and to the curators who arranged these works so they could be appreciated.
Welcome to the Magical Garden of Creation. We will be venturing daily into the garden to explore its many treasures. Let's us begin our adventure into the fantastic fields of creation.
Shall we enter through the portal into another dimension?
Who knows where we go?
Stay tuned - more to come daily.
Swirls of green, it is in your breezes that I would walk, hearing the hoots of owls echoed through the cypress and oaks clinging to the banks curving along side the river snaking its way through sandy soils. oh, yes, swirls of green dancing in the gentle breezes, reflecting shimmering streaks of silver and shadows against the shallow sandbars, bands of color embracing me in the rhapsody of light and sounds and smells, it is in your breezes that I wander across creation, finding the forgotten me wherever I go.
Photography is the art of seeing the art all around that is worth seeing. Photography is seeing art anywhere on the giant living canvas which embraces us all. I am the canvas's tool, the canvas's eye, the camera, to glimpse and share the living canvas of art throughout life. I am the eyes of the world, the eyes which sees art, composition, exquisite play of light and dark shadows, the eyes which join with the camera to share the art that I see. Photography is living art, seeing art, sharing art of the living canvas.
Seeing is the basis of photography. Artists over the centuries have drawn, painted and sculpted to share whey they saw. Photography allows me to share what I see.
I can still hear the zen teacher Phillip Kapleau speaking words of encouragement as he walked through the meditation hall: "Be like a cat, totally relaxed yet totally aware and ready to pounce."
To really see one has to be relaxed, free of distracting thoughts and emotions. One has to be relaxed and yet aware so that the fleeting moment can be seen and written in light. Photography means writing in light and when the setting sun is writing in light across the canvass of the sky one has to be ready to pounce, to act.
Seeing also requires one to allow people and nature to feel free to be seen as they are. People look their best in portraits when they are relaxed and feeling free to show who they really are.
So welcome to my seeing, to my exploring the world anew as if I was a child set loose in the boundless fields of creation, free to explore and play. If you would like, please let us take a walk together, or get together, and write in light for the world to see you as you want to be seen.
