0611: Early Mornings

IMG_1097_01_LR_12

Some mornings, despite my best efforts, I can find myself struggling with “brain fog.” Nothing major, mind you, perhaps I should rather call it “a slow start to the day.” Over time, I have discovered ways to lift that fog and get rolling. One such solution is a head clearing walk down to Kaaterskill Creek, with or without camera, to forget everything else for a while as I take in the beauty of the surroundings.

Yesterday, instead of climbing down to the creek, I chose instead to view it from the bridge above. Within a matter of minutes the fog began lifting as I found a little visual game with which to amuse myself  – a short series of images, each of which shows something of the creek.

By the time I got back to the studio I was ready to take on the day wide awake and clear headed. The fossil images that follow this exercise are the products of the remainder of the day.

One final note – Two juried shows are opening on Saturday (the 13th) at the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum (WAAM). I’m happy to say that I have a piece in each of them:

  1. Whatever happened to coffee? Can see your morning moods here–even a turd-like object. But hey there is the sublime, a pure geometric thing as well…
