Glass and Light are conducting a symphony of color in every picture. Can you hear the true tones of absolute bliss.

Scimitar

Welcome their vibrant voices and get lost in the songs. Glass of any color in a window will produce the most amazing color concert ever. I am inspired by glass art. I have collected it for more than 25 years and I will continue to collect for the rest of my life. By iteslf it is beautiful and, to me, almost magical. When sun shines through it these creations come alive. I have a large window in my studio that is bright in the afternoon. My glass companions enjoy themselves on full display for me to observe and record. I take photographs of the light coming through the glass and I am sharing them with you. I attempt to capture my fascination with the shapes and colors I see.

What do you see when you look at this photograph? It is one of a series I created from a single glass vase. This handblown vase had sections that reminded me of peacock feathers due to the range of blues and greens in it. I was consumed with the colors in here to the degree that I spent 6 weeks studying it with my camera. About 3 hours a day, every day, I worked with my Macro lens and worked every centimeter piece by piece. I took over 3,000 photographs and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I have processed 32 of these photographs and published them, in my portfolio, in my Peacock Vase gallery. I have many more to examine over time but for now please enjoy the ones I have completed. I like to take my time and process each photograph bit by bit in order to recreate the original brilliance of the colors and light. The camera can only do so much. It is up to me to recapture what I saw when I pressed the button.

I hope that you all have a colorful day. Embrace the light that comes through and look for the light that is hidden from immediate view πŸ™‚

  1. This is a stunning image!! The first thing you notice is the colors, and only after you have absorbed them (and smiled) does you brain even bother to start to figure out what the subject matter actually is. πŸ™‚
