BB Note: People often ask me how I do what I do; how I see and create my unique art…Here's just a few thoughts on these three featured pieces this month:
In creating “One” (above) my “model” - the seagull - was very cooperative in striking a variety of poses. Kneeling down at surf’s edge allowed me to position the slice of fading daylight - that hadn’t yet been erased by the fog and setting sun - just right to frame the bird and create its silhouette. I was aware of the water’s motion and wanted to catch some light on the water to contrast with the dark sand, rock, and accentuate the rolling water. Out of several poses on the rock from Mr. Seagull, I chose this one as he appears to be looking back as day fades to night, maybe even thinking a bit of what once was. "Sagamore Clouds" (below) says it all. I have been all over the country and I find the clouds over the Cape to be the most interesting. I love to capture them, and on this day the "cloudscape" was intense from the overwhelming blanket coverage to individual clouds in the distance. and last, "Sand" (below) is nature at its best creating almost a near perfect symmetry via wind and water driven sand, with the sun "drawing" perfect shadow to define the design...too cool...I love this!
