Not every day is an action-packed journey out into nature, as nice as that sounds.
Sometimes running errands can be moderately enjoyable, and on this Friday I chose to view an exhibition at the same place where I got my start, look over some photo books at the library and then drop of some art pieces for exhibits of my own.
Christine Quick’s artwork I was not familiar with, however she painted stunning landscape paintings rich with color and detail.
I think it’s important to carve one’s own niche in their art, however equally as valuable to study the work of others.
So why look at paintings as a photographer, you may ask?
Well, there is a certain energy transfer by seeing someone else’s artwork. You see the craftsmanship and quality they put into the piece or pieces. This and so much more can inspire you in your own creative ventures.
I view the natural world and light in this way, by seeing what worlds a painter may drawn to sharing through a canvas.
Photo books are a lot like children’s picture books…but for adults.
I had a bit of extra time to lounge around and so I picked up several of these from their collection. Art Wolfe, Ansel Adams and more. What’s not to like?
The rest of the day was spent with dropping off artwork to two local exhibits, the Art in the City in Downtown Dayton and the Springfield Museum of Art’s (SMOA) 76th Member Exhibition.
These are just some of the many errands and things in the day of the life. Hopefully this was of value to you and you enjoyed it!
