Mist, fog and stillness. Feelings of closeness and narrowed vision that focuses on a finite portion of a scene. Love when muted color and shadows emerge. Otherworldly.
Using light, form, texture, color, and composition these composed and found ordinary objects are intended to be enjoyed by the viewer as beautiful little vignettes.
These images capture the feeling I experienced while walking or driving by. "Huh. That building seems to be winking at me!" Age, some neglect, odd additions and subtractions, placement of shrubs and bushes, and other quirks.
I am attracted to what I see around me in everyday life. What is one person's mundane and banal is my "Wow that's so beautiful." But most everyone else sees it as "Meh, it's a fire hydrant." My continuing challenge is to figure out what the difference is, and make those images.
Taking advantage of professional landscape artists' and architects' work with these images is a relaxing past time. Nature is in a continual cycle of new growth and death. Colors and form with plants and water features.
