Why should I wait for love when I can find it.
Yet it appears I find it in the smile on
your face and a child’s joyful laughter
complete, resplendent, never far away,
calling to me during times of war and peace.

 

I feel that I must share this series at a time when many would question whether there was any good in this world.

The frequency with which we view violence and hate in our everyday lives leads us to believe that love is a myth. However, there are people out there that do know what love is all about. Perhaps you’ve met some along the way. They appreciate you, support your efforts, and are encouraged by your success.

Sweethearts are wonderful. We all wish we had one.
However, in their absence, we can remain appreciative. Take the time this weekend to remind the special, giving people in your life how much you care.

Let’s kill those Valentines’ blues.

Have a blessed weekend and a joyful week!
Remember always, to live life creatively!

 

Surprising Aerial Landscapes Created Using Shipping Supplies

One summer afternoon, we decided to put unwanted items in storage. We took a trip to Lowes Hardware Store, picked up some heavy duty moving boxes and headed for our local Target for packing supplies. When we got home, we started to assign a number of books, clothes etc. to their designated stations. As we sealed each box with tape, I noticed the elongated bubbles that formed beige rivers on the surface. Imagining this was an aerial view of a mysterious landscape, I carefully composed my shot. Initially, I had two different versions of this photograph. However, I was more pleased with the strength of the lines and texture of the back and white one.

What does this object remind you of?

Words..

Floating Across My Mind…

Some Common..

Others Sublime..

During The Day,…

They Count Numbers…

At Night,…

They Keep Time…

Sewn together in a winter’s haze…

Visit sane madness,…

A trip through my maze

I’m excited about introducing a vivid color version of my “Roller Wordy” series on my website!

Sure, black and white is beautiful, but color is so expressive.

“Roller Wordy” was created using texture from roller stamps with the intention to simulate mid-century, minimalist modern art.

Line, shape, texture and form all come into play to provide design lovers and interior decorators with simple versatility and a bold, pop of juicy color!

Check out the series here!

New additions being added soon!

The sturdy,…

weathered green house …

didn’t give away its secrets readily.

Many rows of plants…

and a thousand blossoms later,…

her modern majesty appeared.

The latest addition to my floral “Power Of Flowers” series combines hardy, tropical hibiscus flowers and punchy, ornamental peppers with the clean lines of modern design providing the perfect touch of flame, tartness, spice and business. Ravishing reds and not-so-mellow yellows are cheeky, playful and unconventional, but then again, so are you!

Have a great weekend!

After a brief hiatus from my abstract photography blog,…

I’m back to creating the work I love best,…

finding the extraordinary in ordinary objects that surround us.

Here’s yet another addition to my one of my latest series “Laundratopia“!

“Rotational Twist”, like the rest of the work in this series, is inspired by 60s optical art! You can read more about it here.

Before I shot the photos, I never really liked doing laundry. Like many other folks out there, it was just another one of those boring, but necessary chores.

Now, I realize that you can find inspiration and joy even in the mundane.  All it takes is a touch of creativity and a different mindset.

Have a wonderfully creative weekend!
