View from Studio: Flight



"Freedom"

“He spoke of very simple things- that it is right for a gull to fly, that freedom is the very nature of his being, that whatever stands against that freedom must be set aside, be it ritual or superstition or limitation in any form.
"Set aside," came a voice from the multitude, "even if it be the Law of the Flock?"
"The only true law is that which leads to freedom," Jonathan said. "There is no other.”
― Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull

View from Studio: Reflection


Is this the window to what really is?

Reflections are everywhere. In water, side of a building, glass, in our thoughts.
On a still (calm) day reflections are crisp and clear, mirroring the world. 

But on a slightly turbulent days things get murkier, shapes begin to form, abstraction of shapes begin to happen... colors mix into each other and nothing is exactly what it seems to be. 

Both hold its own beauty! 

When we get busy 'living' and wrapped up in daily chores, sometimes important things get neglected. Those times it okay to be lazy, get back into the coziness of the comforter and just re-group with self. While life must be lived in forward motion, to truly understand its meaning, and to right all the wrongs we need to stop every few steps and look backwards.

They say past cannot be changed, but I often catch myself asking.... CAN IT?

View from my Studio: Rain

Little bird singing by my window

It's raining.
Some run for shelter,
Others just soak it in
Getting soaked alone is reflective
Soaked with a friend; adventure.
Sitting by the window,
Listening to this bird sing
I reflect
And dream about my future adventures.

View from my Studio: Frost

Frost on cold Wintery days grows on the window glass,

forming patterns of lovely translucent geometry.
Light shining through it.
It holds inside the flow of its past, the expanse of the entire sky.
Clear and Distinct.
I see mountains, rivers and entire cities;
children playing...
What do you see?

I am one lucky artist!
The Best part of having a Studio converted from an old Mill is the History behind the house, the amazing small details of construction and the Gigantic Windows! A view to beauty, inspirations and possibilities.
And having a window that faces water is just perfect!

For this year I wanted to do a series of Blog Posts on what I see.
I hope these images inspire you as much as they inspire me.
