I was inspired by this quote the other day, that expresses exactly what my art and photography processes are like. By author Mark Nepo, "I believe that all art, and all of what art expresses, is already fully formed somewhere in the very fabric of things - just waiting for us to discover it and express it...In this way, all creativity is a discovery of what is already present but otherwise unseeable."
Here are a few photos of what inspired me and the painting layers that resulted.
