supple / rigid


L - Nikon / T - Nikon

The ginkgo trees have dropped all there leaves now. I collected some of them and brought them inside, put them in a vase as if a flower and placed it on the window sill so that I could appreciate them even longer. The glowing yellow supple fans changed to golden brown and curled - still beautiful to my eyes. / i was so happy to be able to spend time with my dad's side of the family this past weekend- it's something that doesn't happen very often but i'm always thankful when i does. my cousin is a new marine and we went out to California for his graduation ceremony. it seems out of luck that we've become close just in the past few years, but i'm glad it happened before we grew up (too much). it was glad o be able to attend this event. it was very powerful, and emotional for the family. the rigor and structure that went into the program seemed to be mirrored in the yellow architecture that i was very drawn too. this yellow somehow seem to make the sunny state that much sunnier.

Thank you for your kind words regarding my blog & artwork! And thanks for visiting. that particular piece is 5.5"w x 7"h x 2.5"d. It's created with encaustic beeswax meduim. I took the photo of a local Columbia Gorge crow last winter. I wasn't sure how else to reply to your comment other than this way. I look forward to enjoying your creative works.
