Invisible links

While working on a composition I take a great effort in finding a flow and a connection to create a balanced image.

It’s curious that this is reflected in our daily lives with the people around us. That when taking the time to nurture relationships, I, for one, feel more balanced and happier.  These invisible links with our friends, our family and those around us, that are so essential because they in return, influence us and help create the composition and flow of our own lives.

So no matter where we find ourselves, whether by a lake or on a bridge in distant city, let’s remember to cultivate our connections in order to paint the canvas of our lives into what we want.

There are times we have those unique connections right in front of us. Like a shared moment on a lake. (Green Lake, Washington)

And other times those connections can be found in the most peculiar of places.

Interrupting the Grey

Strolling along the waterfront in Kirkland, Washington, once more I am surprised by finding something new and magnificent. As I stumble across this colorful and creative sculpture I am reminded that beauty is everywhere. What is most interesting is that we humans are drawn to beauty. We are drawn  to experience it and create it. We have different definitions of it, but no matter how different our view of beauty is, we are all mesmerized by it.

The grey is interrupted by a ray of color brought by the swirl of this sculpture.

 

“Dreaming of creation”. Isn’t art an extension of our feelings, our experiences, our thoughts?
