One day - about 5 years ago - I was in my kitchen, and a shard of sunlight hit an apple on the cutting board just right. It was beautiful. I never looked at the world quite the same way again.
I walk pretty much every day. And I plan my walks around when I think I might see the most interesting shadows. With my favorite podcast in my ears, I hit the street. And then I'm just open. Open to ordinary things made more intriguing by how the light interacts with them. It may be a crack in the sidewalk, a rusty metal fence or a humble metal utility cover... a bird against the stark winter sky, frost on a leaf, a snail making his way across a rock.
Sometimes I'll capture an image (or combination of images) which inspires me to bring out the easel, canvas and oils. That's pretty fun, too.
