I love to the watch creative process on every level. Art is so subjective and I am always amazed at the gifts people have been given. To watch someone make something from nothing is so inspiring. When I woke up this morning my mind was racing as to what I should shoot today for my first post with the new camera. Not that it has to be spectacular...with me chances are it won't be. But I wanted it to be something special. Turns out, I didn't have to look far...
As I watched my boys' paint this afternoon I started shooting each movement they made. Even though they are children I realized that they were so deliberate in each stroke they made. A few times I had to remember to take some pictures because I was really enjoying just watching them create. It was a real treat for me to share these moments with them. I was reminded of how I feel when I take pictures. I feel bliss.
The image above is Jack perfecting his rainbow. In this shot, I love the way his small fingers are around the paintbrush and the shadow on the canvas gives it some extra interest. The picture below is my Sam cleaning off his brush and getting ready to dive into another color. The sunlight and shadows made this very appealing for me to capture.
I hope that I always have wonder like a child in the things I see and create. Thanks for letting me share my bliss with you.
