Passing by a window yesterday afternoon something caught my eye and I had to run out and take a picture before the light disappeared. You know how it goes when you’re in a hurry – I went out to the car to get the camera because I knew I left it in the car but the doors were locked.  I never lock the car doors but I did the night before because I left  a quilt in the car ready to go to its destination so I had to hurry back into the house for the keys and by the time I got out there, camera in hand, the light was barely still there.  It moves so quickly at about 2:30 in the afternoon.  But alas!  Here is what I saw:


So then I played with it in Photoshop a bit and came up with this:

10.28.14. 3A

Actually I like the original best but then, I ended up with these that I could use as backgrounds or brushes:

10.28.14. 2B 10.28.14. 2C

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
