Tiny men bow before lesser gods. Their outstretched arms and faux virility always impress the latest generation of pop culture enthusiasts. Reigning briefly in the land of smoke, mirrors and money, they resign themselves to a desperate fate.  Icons never die, Alice has many lives and so does the White Rabbit.

It’s been a long month. At first hibernating during January’s bitter chill seemed like a good idea, but it has quickly become one of the most challenging months I’ve ever encountered.  All this time spent indoors reading, writing, and photographing new objects has made me pray for the predictable beginning of lovey dovey February. Perhaps I’ve decided to focus on objects that remind me of nature because it’s time to get out of the house. Nevertheless, I hope you find the time to enjoy them!

What does this object remind you of?

 

 

 

 

Ordinary Objects That Look Like Colorful Landscapes

Violet folds gather together. Their grace is evident, though the affair is brief. They are not like the rest of us, surrendering their beauty to foreseen frailties. That is the advantage of being plastic and soulless, having no light but giving the appearance of life. Not content to blossom in their time, they chose to remain vicious pretenders. Stealing love from those that weep in darkness, their faces will meet the dust of succeeding ages. All false gods die not to a celebratory march, but instead to the convenient and constant failing of memory.

This photo was taken from an object that we bought to decorate my mother’s room.  The price was right. She loved it. We bought it. She is such a fan of purple. Every time I see the color, I think of her and her contribution to our lives. The lighting was dim, but I was able to shoot a couple of photographs that I felt best illustrated the theme that this object brought to mind.  Several times in our lives, we are saddened by the fact that we do not appear to have what society tell us that we need to have in order to be considered worthy.  Some people appear to “have it all”, but appearances are not always reality. Sometimes a beautiful face hides great evil.   What does this object remind you of?

Small purple flowers huddle together for comfort.  Colorful lights illuminate the garden.  Gently passing over delicate petals, they hover briefly in transcendent celebration.

I will continue to share my various conceptual nature series as well as other abstract artwork; be on the lookout.  Unfortunately, this last week and the week before I’ve been experiencing the most annoying, hair pulling, modem throwing connection problems.  I’m having great difficulty viewing the internet. Naturally, there has been a sizable lag in between my artwork posts. I kindly ask that you all bear with me. Despite this spirit crushing setback, I have confidence that our family will find a decent solution to this mess.  For now, this little grey mare (computer) is in remission. 😉
