I keep focusing on light in and on my work. The light and background in this photographed is a polished steel box, with a very dark patina, almost black. The light comes from a LED light bar hidden by a steel light hood. Beautiful background to photograph this piece entitled “Canyon Spirits”.
I was inspired by the atmosphere of lands and skies of northern New Mexico and Arizona, combined with memories of living on the ocean. For a color palette, I use several shades of blues, greens, purples, coppers and pearl white. Favorite woods: Mesquite, White Oak, Cedar, Hickory and Walnut. This piece is re-purposed wood, not sure of the hardwood but once carried trains throughout the south west.
Welded a steel stand for this piece in the form of a classic surfboard shape and finishing the stand with a pearl white resin layer and then add a layer of clear aqua phosphorescent. http://www.stor-ybox.com to see my online gallery. This piece is sold but I have others.
You’re blessed when you get your inside world-Your Mind and Heart put right. Then you can see God in the outside world. The Message
People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. Elizabeth Kubler Ross.
