I’m a bit behind. Somehow this blog, which I really love doing, often goes begging for lack of time. So here are a couple of online shows I’m way overdue to tell about.
Celebration of Art 2020 was an all-media national show that began August 18 and ended yesterday, October 14. It was hosted by the Marin Society of Artists in San Rafael, Ca.
My image in the show was “The Way of Grass 3,” and its another example of one of my favorite photographic experiences: finding the beauty in something mundane. This photograph was made in February of this year, and as the name suggests, it’s one of a series of three that celebrate the glories of dormant grass.
Another botanical was selected by Las Laguna Gallery for their show–surprise! surprise!–2020 Botanical! The gallery is in Laguna Beach, Ca., and the show runs until October 31st. You can see it here.
“Releve” is one of those macro shots of some tiny detail of nature I so enjoy finding and creating an image of. And when they are all about form, I often convert to black & white to tease out the form I see.
The leaves of the swamp sunflower (Helianthus angustifolius) dry and curve into often beautiful shapes. These reminded me so much of a ballet dancer in the releve position!
“Winter in Louisiana,” such as it is, approaches. These images remind me of the treasures creation offers, even when the landscape looks kind of bleak at first glance. I am grateful that others so far away–California!–saw and appreciated them.
