Dusted, yellow branches search for the sun.

They habitually await the introduction of spring.

Outside, winter’s frost has fought it’s last battle.

Inside, the pampered natives play rustic peasantry.

What does this object remind you of?

Happy Easter Tranquil Koi Pond

This Easter weekend we visited Rainbow Gardens Nursery in search of some succulents to plant as living decoration for our backyard.  Our search was successful; we found just the right mix of tiny plants for our project. There were some nice surprises along the way. The scenery was beautiful. The Koi Pond on the property was fantastic. While I understand the above image is a departure from the abstract subject matter that I normally post, I felt the need to include this one as a nice holiday break before launching into the next series of abstract pictures. As always, it is the small, yet extraordinary moments that we capture that make the most impression in our lives.

Have a wonderful Easter Weekend! Sorry no bunnies or eggs.;)

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. 😉

A patient flower sits amongst common lawn grass. It’s sharp petals form a star that burns it’s way into the eager gardener’s memory.  Two bright lights like hovering fairies chase it’s stem, waiting to catch the morning dew.

This is the second installment of the Lasers and Let-Us (Lettuce) Nature Series.  Of all the flowers at the nursery, this exotic, fiery lily chose to take center stage. “Tell me that I’m beautiful,” it cried.  I did by dutifully taking this picture.

NEW LASERS AND LET-US (LETTUCE) PLANT SERIES COMING SOON!!!

Tender green leaves emerge from quiet darkness. A crimson ray of light penetrates the scene. The summer garden lives, subtly revealing the mystery of the moment.

*SIDE NOTE: Recently, I have decided to get a little more adventurous and include some of my latest conceptual photography on this abstract art blog.  For all you plant and nature lovers out there, I hope that you enjoy my latest twist on an already familiar subject! 

A quick trip to Rainbow Garden Center resulted in some inspirational and beautiful pictures of a variety of plants and flowers. I decided to reinterpret one of my photos of a popular, tropical garden plant.  Instead of a sunny, busy mid-afternoon, I wanted to portray the plant as if it were slowly getting ready to face the start of another day.  Unexpected light interruptions and creative use of appropriate filters provided visual interest and added to the concept of new beginnings.
