On Being an Artist


There is something incredibly fulfilling to be able to create my own art and actually display it on my wall. I have been exploring photography for two years now and for the first time finally felt ready to hang one of my own pieces on my wall. This image was taken only a few weeks ago on a photography workshop retreat I was at. It is by far an instant favorite. Being an artist doesn't mean that everyone has to like this piece or understand it. I created it in just this way because it made me feel. Looking at this photo in my office every day will bring me serenity. I created it for me.

  1. I love that this is a photo of your photo! It looks fantastic hanging on display and that is exactly what we should all do with the art we create. You are an inspiration my friend!

  2. Thank you very much! I agree, we all should do something with our digital photos instead of letting them sit on the computer.

  4. As soon as I saw this I thought to myself, "Wow! Forever I've wished I could shoot something just like that." And like Minday said, I love the way you've turned it into another photo, too! This is a special!
