During lunch at a family restaurant, I liked these reflections enough to photograph them.
It's been a while since I wrote and you may be wondering what I have been doing. Well, I have been seeing.
Most people think of artists as those who spent a lot of time creating art. However, we artists spent much more time looking at and taking note of visual phenomenon around us. Without this ability, we cannot produce our art.
A visit to the mall means I notice the patterns created by the overhead lights reflecting off the hard, polished floor. The window displays are like melodies, some flowing and smooth with coordinating colors, others loud and discordant. Likewise, a car trip takes me through groups of colored vehicles dancing on the highway. I note the strong contrast of a lemon yellow taxi against a midnight blue van. Driving through a rural area, I watch the ever changing palette of green paints (spring, sap, hooker's, teal, olive). At the shore, the ocean rolls gently in teals and violets, and I wonder how to paint the twinkling of sunlight on the waves.
So, as you see, I have been very busy.
