Happy New Year and Happy Weather!
Happy New Year to all my WordPress friends around the world!
The arts are a funny thing. Even though we may speak different languages, live in different cultures and even have different religious and political beliefs, art can bring us all together.
Long ago when the first ancestor to ancient man drew a face in the sand to more modern times 35,000 years ago when he painted the world around him on the walls of caves, we have had the urge to express ourselves, to interpret visually all that surrounds us.
2014 was especially interesting for me as a part that I hadn’t known existed before emerged. Breaking away from what I knew well and had done for many years, colour landscapes, I found myself intrigued, fascinated and drawn into the world of black and white. It is a journey that I hope you will follow with me as it promises to be exciting and new!
Black and white or color, landscapes are more than just the land. It is the weather that is the glue that pulls everything together. The light and the land become greater than the sum of their parts if a healthy helping of weather is included in the mix. Landscapes really should be called weatherscapes. Without that magic ingredient spectacular can look very plain. With the weather even the plain can look spectacular.
All the best in the New Year to my WordPress friends and thank you for your comments and view they do not go unnoticed.
