Flowers and Fountains


Watching the fireworks Sunday night ,with one eye on my camera's viewfinder and the other on the awesome display, I was quickly propelled into my right brain, mesmerized by the colors and forms that appeared, slowly faded, and disappeared, to be quickly replaced by another bit of amazement.

Not knowing a thing about fireworks I found myself referring to the images as Flowers and Fountains. Then on my morning walk I found a cache of spent fireworks clearly labeled Fountains and Blossoms. Now I know.

I shot 156 images, thanks to the minor miracle of digital photography, and while none are worthy of publishing or even printing they are giving me some ideas for paintings which I'll start on as soon as I bring order to my studio.

    I just love the way our artist minds work and "see" one thing in another thing! I agree with your fountains and flowers! And you might think of Electricity also in formation. :) You did a great job!

  5. what a great way to bring what you viewed and experienced with the fireworks back into your studio and into your wonderful daily collage
