My art :P

Working on the road this winter has def made it difficult to make the kind of work I would normally create at home. I am not the kind of person who can just neatly pack an art box and go off into the wild to paint from nature and then return home at the end of the day with a cute little picture... Instead I am the kind of person who would normally tack a large piece of paper to the wall and then spend the next week or so "dancing" with art supplies. By the time the piece is finished the wall is covered with pencil marks and spilled tea; the floor is covered with cups, brushes, tea bags, photos, pencils and other goodies; and I am covered in charcoal and paper cuts :P. Alas I can't quite work in this method on the road, and I am not a fan of working in front of family members (to many questions and suggestions). What I have taken up is Digital Photography.. I am nowhere as good as I would like to be, and most of what I do capture is pure luck. But I am enjoying the possibilities with the medium.. My main subject of choice are objects left behind by humans such as garbage, farm ruins, toys, etc etc. I love how the unnatural and natural elements collide to exist. Nature will overtake what is left behind as the object struggles with its fading purpose. I am drawn to the ghost of the human presence in nature and city corners.
