Art returns us to a mood of wonder and appreciation, helps us stay centered in the face of our culture. Its beauty, strength and clarity can be inspiration for us in our own lives. Art reminds us of human virtues and the wonders of nature. Its richness and depth can inspire us to rise above the mediocrity of drifting in the cultural norm, to live our own lives artfully.
My own art is inspired by such wonders as flower petals, the patterns of veins in leaves, the sweet golden color of my children’s sleepy faces when they awake in the morning, the shiny blackness of crows, the rich smell of the forest floor, changing colors of autumn leaves, seed pods and acorns - a hundred intricate and intimate moments in a day that can take my breath away if I remember to stop, listen, look around.
of my art is to inspire and remind myself and others that we can be awed
by even the most simple things in life. Allow your breath to be taken
away by the beauty of a leaf, allow the intricacy of a flower to remind
you of the awesome gift of life, be amazed by the shape of an acorn and
the smoothness of its skin, be awed by the delicate, stunning work of
art that a bird’s nest is. We are surrounded by amazing wonders
every day and my art reminds us to notice, appreciate and be grateful
for them. My art reminds us, no matter what we do or what our work is,
let us live our lives artfully!
