Nature's Liquid Canvas 2

    Newer Older

    In a pine forest canal on the first sunny morning after a few days of heavy rains I happened to catch this raindrop by pure chance as it fell from the pine needles and created the ripples.

      ...strongly reminds me of Vincent Van Gogh's paintings... Interesting thoughts there...

      Plato says that art imitates the objects and events of ordinary life. In other words, a work of art is a copy of a copy of a Form. It is even more of an illusion than is ordinary experience. On this theory, works of art are at best entertainment, and at worst a dangerous delusion.

      Yes they are very interesting thoughts =)

      Art can be entertaining (to both the creator and the viewer) though I'm not sure how often it is dangerous though......
      dangerous to some worldviews perhaps?

      To be inspired by that which is mother nature before us and try and hold it within whilst recreating it gives one a heightened sense of that moment in time and space,

      As a part of nature ourselves I see this as an act of reverence....nothing illusory about it


      having said that as a keen photographer of the beauty in nature I see myself as holding a mirror up to her art,not so much creating my own!
