“The Amen of nature is always a flower.” -Oliver Wendell Holmes
I’m a step ahead of Spring, I know. I’m extra-impatient this year, so I’ve been working on florals. Lots and lots of pale pastel florals. Layering a flower photo with textures is like slapping the finishing touch on a wet canvas. I suppose there’s a thin line that separates a painter/artist from a photographer/artist. Judging from some of the comments my artist friends make, we also share the same brain. Creativity feeds on creativity. The more we work at it, the more we crave the next challenge.
Today it’s a simple pink coneflower in soft, dreamy light. Enjoy.

My mom’s favorite flower was lilacs. I can’t smell a lilac without thinking of her. Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! If you’re still blessed with a mother in your life, treasure the time you have left with her.
