Art inspired by the Renaissance, Celtic knots, fantasy art, and storybooks. I create traditional paintings, digital art and photograph knights, fair maidens, fairies, bagpipers, flowers and a few meadows too.
Weeds, Dried Wildflowers and Bloomed Wildflowers Under Threat By Saratoga Hospital Development
Photograph - Photography
This is another meadow photograph, this time with lots of plants all tangled up and tangled in together, a kind of enmeshment.
This photograph almost looks monochromatic with its green and golds, but it is peppered with bright pink wildflowers. Most of the golds are dried wildflowers as well as leaves that have changed and fallen off the plants. There is nothing like the natural world to show us ornate-ness, beauty and variety. When I paint, I try to convey some of that, but so far, I have not come close to anything like this. In many ways, this is the ultimate in terms of providing detail. It is also the ultimate in arrangement of details with many diagonals, the symmetry of the flowers themselves, abstract shapes appearing inbetween the plants, stems and branches, and the little clusters of flowers, making their own brand of bouquet.
I believe detail in our living environments makes us feel relaxed and serene, more at peace, more fulfilled. We are meant to live in natural environments, and detail brings us some examples of that.
The destruction of meadows and looking at them as mere "vacant lots" to put in parking lots and one story buildings is perhaps just another indicator of a people who cannot look at details and who only want to rush into misguided "fixes" for parking: the destruction of nature .
In this meadow are many varieties of animal species who depend on the plants for food and shelter.
Activists: to keep this land from being another lot for parking and offices (especially when there is "other land" they own for those purposes and is being used already in that capacity), contact SaveMorganStreet.com.
