NATURE SERIES – 2020-21 , ,
2020 was a tough year – bemg quarantined, staying home day after day, spending time sifting around. Being an artistic and visual person, I began to view nature’s images through windows, on walls and objects from inside our home.
First time I was visually impressed by nature, was looking through the small windows on the french doors. My oldest daughter and I were enjoying some quiet time together. We were sitting on the bed looking outside. I had a sketchbook and colored pencils and as I obsened the outside nature I began sketching the scenes and (abeling them 1-A, 1-B, 1 -C, etc.
My second experience with nature through the window was when I was sitting atone in a small room. I noticed an image on the wall in front of me as sun came through the window behind me. The images were nature’s reflections on the wall. TTiose reflections impressed me, so I started taking pictures on my iPhone. I captured quite a lot of nature’s reflections. A couple times we visited fnends and I was able to capture more images. Some were outside on patio walls. As the quarantine started to lift, restaurants opened in small capacity. I found nature’s reflections on the gravel parking lot at The Bartonville Store.
The final scenes in this series are trees in nature on our property. Relaxing on the front porch, viewing nature in person brings me peace.
This Nature series, which began in 2020 and completed in 2021, has encouraged my expressive artistic self through nature.
