Sometimes laborious chores offer the perfect photo opportunities.

I have an allergy to cleaning.
At every turn, I find a creative way to avoid it.
However, when I do get around to it, I try to find joy and mystery in my domestic misery.
Mopping the floor doesn’t have to boring!
When the water buckets stack in your favor, you know you have something special.

Enjoy the results of my latest abstract photography adventure?
Stay tuned for next week’s latest addition!

The majority of us love flowers…

plants, majestic blue skies….

and sunshine.

Gardens…

provide us a peaceful place…

to regroup…

and appreciate nature.

When I decided to get a little…

groovy..

with this latest project…

I just knew nature would come together in mysterious ways…

I decided to start my latest collection with the Asiatic Lily. I feel it’s beauty surpasses other lilies I’ve seen at the nurseries. The cheery green leaves, mellow yellow pistoles and soda pop purples provided the perfect punch when split into many crystalline sections.

I hope this makes your weekend a wonderful one.

Along with the many splendors and joys of spring…

comes dreaded house hold chores…

…like cleaning.

No one likes to admit they’re a pack rat, a hoarder…

or worse yet, an obstinate procrastinator.

While scrubbing our not so humble homes is the absolute…

last thing on our dreaded“To Do” list, it does have it’s charms..

and…

hidden treasures.

Who could’ve guessed then that the supplies we used to wash away a winter’s worth of trash were so gosh darn inspiring. Well, they are. This particular cleaning tool provided several mesmerizing architectural compositions in a variety of colors.

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!

 

Ordinary Objects That Look Like 60s Op Art 2

Come with me on another object adventure…

This week we are once more artistically analyzing the profundity of a much hated household chore…

laundry!

Even the smallest of changes to a found texture can make a great difference in the way it’s perceived.

In the latest installment to my Op Art laundry inspired series “Laundratopia”, it was the compositional extreme pull in the middle that gives it its’ penetrating feel.

Like the visual pull, we often feel that somebody or something is moving us strongly in a direction that we may or may not want to go.

When we try to ignore the situation..

the more intense it becomes.

At this point..

we are aware of one thing.

That the situation must be dealt with.

The constant pursuit of wisdom and peace in our lives often causes us to overlook

ourselves and our own needs.

However, if we insist on putting our own emotional, psychological and physical needs on the back-burner, we suffer from burnout and a lingering malaise that eventually leads to melancholy and finally bitterness.

Make time for others, but do so with limits, not for the lack of love, but because you have to love yourself before you can love others.

Have a peaceful, loving and artful weekend.

Always remember to live life creatively!
