It certainly took us by surprise just a few weeks ago. A sudden burst of energy struck one small portion of our yard and demolished a few trees. We were very lucky that the trees all just missed falling on our house. A few months before we had taken down a big Logenberry tree that I was worried would come through our house and I’m so glad we had done that. It could have been disastrous!
turtlemoonimpressions 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.
