Water - Always Interesting
Water has always been of interest to me.
There is something about the wave action in a storm, the mirror-like stillness on the lake during a quiet morning, and the song of the mountain river rushing over the rounded boulders that draws my attention.
In addition to the distant shots capturing the fullness of the scene, I also enjoy the more intimate photographs of the aquatic environment.
Some Aren’t Sure What This Is
Displayed prominently within my booth at art fairs, this print is one of my favorites, often starting a conversation and captivating attention.
Not quite sure what it is, some viewers guess it is a close-up of horse hair.
Others are unable to hazard a guess, while others suspect it might be a river, just not something they’ve seen.
Close-up Of The Rapids
I explain it is a close-up of the Big Thompson River.
Imagine sitting along the banks, listening to the river rushing over the boulders; hearing the pounding whitewater striking the downstream boulders forcing the river back onto itself before exiting downstreams
Action And Calmness
Although there is action within the scene, there is also a calmness. To me, it is this dichotomy that makes this image so interesting.
