Good morning one and all and once again thank you very much for dropping by. This morning I am briefly going to mention the three new works I have recently added to my website.
The first two are the same except one is pink and one is blue.
These images were created from a macro photographic image of the flower Schizostylis, also known as Pink Princess. During the editing phase of this image I found myself drawn to creating something with a bit of glow and sparkle to it, to give it a slightly magical feel. I am hoping that the end result is one that will make people smile.
The third image, an abstract, started off as a photograph of the leafy trees in the Ashdown Forest in Sussex, England.
Personally I love to be surrounded by nature, to see the trees and leaves glistening so beautifully in the sunlight. I love to absorb the quiet and the sense of peace and calm, and to let all the hectic of day to day life just melt away. So with this image, what I have attempted to do is to create a work that shares my emotional response to the scene rather than one that shows a literal depiction.
Abstract art is probably quite a difficult way to communicate and I wouldn't mind betting there will be many people who most certainly do not experience what I have tried to share with this work. However if I have succeeded and this image does evoke a feeling of peace and calm to any viewer out there, that would truly be the icing on the cake!
