Here’s my second pic for this challenge. It’s a door like all the rest of the doors on the floor but this one caught my eye because there was something colorful on it. So I approached it close up and saw that some small colorful bits of ephemera, perhaps dried flowers with bits of paper were scattered on the ledge.  door-appleton-mills-web

I played with it ab bit in PS to exaggerate the pattern on the door and the texture but left the section of colored bits unaltered except to increase the saturation a tad.         door-appleton-mills-2-web

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.
