 Going through my photo archives of last year's initial experiments with still life compositions and this image kept calling me.  I totally fell in love with these individual pieces, all Karl's of course. Park of his many collections.  I cannot tell you how beautiful the lines and colors are in that center vase that is made from wood.  I love it!  The other pieces are uniquely beautiful on their own but the vase is soooo beautiful and precious.

Light & Shadow series #8649

Blue, blue, blue.
I don't know exactly why I wanted this image to be so blue but typical black and white seemed so, typical.

The surrounding was ooohh so green and I guess that made me go so far on the other side of the color spectrum.

All these vases have been used for floral arrangements up at the cabin at one time or another. Except maybe the one that is my husband Karl's ceramic wine glass.  Rarely used for drinking if I remember correctly.

Ahh, the painting with light and color!

Light & Shadow series #8740

20"x16" Limited Edition Photograph on Canvas

Ohh the beautiful light, I've discovered at sunrise coming in through the cabin window!

I truly cannot believe that we kept the shade pulled (for privacy) on this window so I hadn't seen the magical morning light in years.  And of course, as we are prone to do,  the surface is always cluttered with kitchen stuff.

Now that the shade is up and the cluttered items relocated this is my new favorite spot to photograph.

The apples and tomatoes are from our urban garden back in Mpls and have been carefully packed and transported up north - to be eaten. What a concept!!!  No, no, no.  They will not be eaten until they've been well photographed.

Light & Shadow series #8822

What an awesome experience to transition to a new photography series that excites me just as much as some of my past work.  I guess an artist CAN change.

After two decades of focusing on the beautiful of the human figure in various locations and lighting patterns I've discovered the quiet beauty of the still life.

No surprise really, if one looks at the countless number of floral studies I've done. Again, simple beauty and about as minimalistic as one can get.

But now, let's add quantity, quality, light, shadows, reflectors and a life time of experience and see what comes up.
