I was very happy to RSVP to Sue's invitation to play and colloborate. I consider this a wonderful opportunity for synnergy amongst our very creative community. Others have also joined; see for example, see Rima's interpretation of Sue's evocative Mandala.
Sue recently emailed me some additonal photos - this one of a Great Egret is excellent. I am playing with her image to create something for her to use, if she wishes. Below is are drafts, purple and greenish, that I hope echo a wood block print or of cave painting.
My favorite transformed pic, although, is just a crop of her image which creates a soft abstract design grounded in the focused grace of a wild bird in its prime. Survival of the most elegant. There is a dash of late Monet here, somehow.
Earlier this week I went to a meeting in a large mid town law firm conference center and they had four original Audobon folio engravings from the 19th century. Large life size representaions that are simply stunning, this collection displayed a snowy owl, black crowned night herons, a northern gannet, and a great blue heron. I walked around the room and marvaled at them before the meeting, much more vibrant than any I had seen in books. No one else in the room, more thirty people, even noticed their splendor.
Pearls before technocrats.
Does anyone else have a spell check here that no longer works? It was my favorite typo placebo.
