A very Happy Monday morning to you. Obviously Mother Nature has a great sense of humor, once again tempting us with warm temperatures all week only to throw us a curve ball with a blast of the winter chill.
Last week I had the privilege in meeting with a new client that is wanting to create some original art pieces by capturing abstract images of the architecture of the building their offices are currently in. The building is an old building with a lot of history and character. I am looking forward to the project!
Saturday was a beautiful day in the neighborhood and I found myself walking around downtown with camera in hand. I am so use to capturing the “big picture” when it comes to photographing the city that it got me to thinking whether I could look at our city in a different way, an abstract kind of way. Not so much the magnitude of the large structures but rather the little things that add to the character of the city, the things that are passed by everyday in our travels and go virtually unnoticed. So as I walked around and started focusing my attention on the details of the city I began to see “art” on every wall and in every alley. All you have to do is slow down and see the light. Art began popping up around every corner.
As I continued to walk and pay closer attention to every detail, I thought how fun would it be to take some additional time and visits to focus on similar visions and projects that looks at our city with a different perspective. I am not sure where it will take me but I like what I have seen so far. It is all about looking left or looking right, looking up or looking down.
As I continued walking around the city it did not take long for my visual journey to take hold. I am not sure if the art found me or if I found the art but it was all coming in to light. It was like a game looking for the golden egg.
Being an artist means that you look at things in a different way whether you use a paintbrush or a camera to create the final result but it is the vision of your artistic endeavors that is most fulfilling. The one thing I enjoy the most about being an artist is the world and all of my surroundings is my inspiration. I am looking forward to my future walk abouts. Enjoy!!!
All my art is available for purchase for personal and corporate art!!!!
Once Again – Best Regards …..
And Much Love!!!!
