Do You Look Up?

To keep the creative juices flowing I have to continually see what God (Nature) has to offer. I am often inspired, literally, from above. Do you look up and see God’s canvas? The filtered rays of light, living shapes, and unbelievable color palette right at sunset has me questioning if I should even continue as an artist. “I’m not worthy.” The questioning soon passes just as I simultaneously flash new painting ideas through my brain and run to grab my camera. Just because I am an artist does not mean I’m the only one inspired. So I ask you, do you look up?

I suspect that at some point I will display all my inspirational photos of the sky within my website gallery. If this photo inspires you I’d love to hear form you.

Here is a photograph I took while in Florida. It’s half a coconut floating on water. The meat of the coconut formed a heart like shadow in the center. Because I’ve had really good responses to this photo I have begun to include some of my inspirational photos on my website. I enjoy taking abstract photos of nature that give a sense of happiness and well-being and depict the mystery that is within creation.
