Patience is the word for this weekend…

I have two stories of patience to add today.  I went on a solitaire photo shoot while my husband was working on Saturday. I say it was a lesson in patience because I got within 6 feet of a Great Blue Heron.  He let me get that close because as I was creeping up on him I did it a couple of sideways moves at a time all the while I would take pictures of the birds on the lake in front of me like I didn’t see him, after I would move a few steps I would look at him from behind the lens and then I would snap some pics of him and then repeat the process again until I got so close I caused him to ruffle his feathers at me in agitation and off he flew. Here are the b&w version and color versions.

Art has always been a part of my life, ever since I can remember I have been creating art. I would make gifts to share with others at Christmas and then I found drawing, or maybe God introduced me to that particular art form, but it was an all consuming thing during my youth. After I had kids, it seemed that art didn't fit into my world in the same way. But the desire was always there and it eventually took over my life again...becoming a need more than a desire. So, photography enters my life. Artists have a unique way of seeing the world, it is their vision that creates the art not the medium they choose to express it in. No two artists will see the same thing in the exact same way. It is the most beautiful form of flattery to have someone see your art and tell you it is beautiful to them. It connects you on such an intimate level. I want to share my creative vision with everyone that wants to look upon it with appreciation.
