Tapping into my wild side with some cool mandala flower art. Sunflower power!
Going through my files I stumbled upon these bright flower beauties. I painted these over 10 years ago and somehow they never got listed. It’s like weeding the garden only to find a beautiful flower sprouting up in a hidden spot. 🙂

Millions of seconds pass unnoticed
Boring and unremarkable
Life’s time clock
But one second can change everything
And everything is different
Just that one moment
Creates a cascade of transformation
An ordinary miracle.

As I continue my photographic journey I am realizing that a good picture has more to do with creativity than skill. Skills can be learned, but imaginative expression cannot. Having shifted my focus recently from my paint table to my camera, I am viewing the world a lot differently. I am not looking to simply copy what other photographers are doing. These days with the advent of virtually full-proof cameras, anyone can take a picture of a pretty flower and have it look really good. I am looking for things that are slightly different. Perfect flowers can be boring and I am anything but that. I seek out the slightly edgy or spent. I want flowers missing from the spray. I look for torn edges and unpopular subject matter. Sure, I will capture a perfectly beautiful rose when it happen to be in my visual path, but I am not looking for them.
This piece titled “Lavender Dance” was a single shoot with missing flowers in a patch of perfectly lovely lavender sprigs. I liked that nature had taken some of it’s beauty, yet left some for me to capture still….
My skill will improve over time and I hope my imagination will too!
