Everyone loves night lights…

until we become adults…

Then,…

they’re just a source of light…

or the latest tech gadget..

not childhood inspiration.

Nevertheless…

whether you clap on or off..

or hit the switch…

they makes our bedrooms…

offices…

and closets bright…

When you flip yours on tonight…

remember…art lives everywhere….

 

When I shot this standard nightlight, I could already see its artistic potential. The warm glow from the center of the light diffused gently, giving it a unique sculptural quality. The dark background and intense color added to the drama. Visions of transparent jelly fish and beautifully pattern conches emerged, creating the welcome introduction to this latest object adventure series.

We’d like to think the walls of our home keep us safe.

They provide necessary protection against the elements,…

strangers, and complex predators…,

but did we ever dream..

that they could be a source of artistic inspiration?

Probably not….

 

In this latest installment of object adventures,..

I’ve added a new addition to the “Spectrum” series,..

“Blue Light Fold”.

Sections of architecture were carefully shot and fused together to create the illusion of a radiating flower like pattern whose vibrant, glowing quality is reminiscent of Color Field Abstract Art and light sculptures from the 70s Light/Space Movement.

When I created this series, I didn’t realize how many striking variations I could create, but as I’ve often pointed out…

the possibilities are endless..

What does this object remind you of?

Have a wonderful and blessed Weekend!

Always remember…

to live life creatively.

     I’ve decided to continue my abstract “Blind Faith” series with some new optical additions. This “O” formation was relatively easy to do and rounds out the other works quite nicely. If you move your screen up and down, the illusion is complete. The rings of the “O” appear to vibrate from the center. I’ll add other creations as time allows. In the meantime, enjoy a peaceful and wonderfully creative weekend.

“H” is the eighth letter of the alphabet. It was the layout of the first house I lived in. You can imagine my surprise when after minutes of carefully arranging sections of blind photos a familiar yet distant character emerged. I hadn’t planned the “H”, but somehow it’s a small though significant part of my experience. Even stranger still, it’s the eighth addition to my series.

Feel free to check out the whole series here and tell me what you think!

Have a great weekend!

Ordinary Objects That Look Like Aerial Landscapes

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.
