There is much beauty in the world around us. Today’s image is based on that point of view. The central image in “Out of the Blue” is a sea shell. The shell has been broken by the surf, and the passage of time. That brokenness allows us to see inside, and reveals how deep beauty can reside in things that we cast off as common.
Along the Saint John River there was a little white church that had been a milestone on family trips. It provided a sign that we would soon be home. One day when I driving by the church, I noticed that it had suffered through a fire. I pulled over and took a few pictures. One of those photos became the basis for today’s image, “Tongues of Fire”.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! The image for today’s post is of an etching of my mom. She was born in Ireland and immigrated to Canada when she was nine. Though she never made much of a fuss about the 17th of March, it’s still a good day to remember my favorite Irish lady.
Today’s image is an etching from a number of years ago. In it posts line up like weathered sentinels along the Fundy shoreline. There they stand on guard, in an attempt to protect the shoreline from the awesome power of the Fundy tide.
Today’s image is an etching from a long time ago. It is based on a small boat encountered on a trip to Newfoundland.
Today’s image is an etching I did a few years ago. At the time I was interested in Celtic knotwork and The Ring gave me a chance to play with that.
