Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. Art involves pouring oneself into a unique moment in time, following the spark of creativity wherever it leads. I love the excitement that fuels a new project, don't you? First it captivates and gives me a good shake, and when it doesn't let me go, I know it's time to pursue it. I've learned that a photo shoot is not the end of the story; it's what happens after I return home and review my photos that completes the image. Some photos demand a painterly touchup with my Wacom tablet, or layering with beautiful digital textures. When the beauty quotient reaches smile level, I know it's time to step away. An artist instinctively knows when a project is complete.
Today's Friday Showcase celebrates painters and photographers whose work captures the creative spirit and broadcasts it in a style unique to each of them. They're as individual as snowflakes and as beautiful as a single ray of sunlight. I hope you'll enjoy the talent I've discovered today.
