Healing Power of Photographic Art

I remember the feeling of peace and calm when I made this image at dawn.  The quiet was accompanied by the chirps and songs of birds nearby and far away.

So it felt right when this image was selected by Jerri Menaul of Art Vitae for installation at the new cancer center, Florida Cancer Specialist & Research Institute in north Fort Meyers, Florida.

The interior space was a long wall between the administrative offices and exam rooms.  While documenting the installation a number of staff and patients stopped to say how positive it was for them to have this beautiful and peaceful image in a place of medical treatment and healing.  As an artist, knowing that the energy I put into creating an image  has capability to connect with others and enhance their lives is a reward in and of itself.

Artists who opened their studios today, Jan. 6, 2016 as part of the Sarasota Visual Artists Studios.
Other artist who participated but who I was unable to visit include:
Jorge Blanco, Bill Buchman, Tim Jaeger, Joseph Melancon, Tom Stephens.

The Open Studio Series is the 1st Saturday of the month January-April 11am-4pm.

This was a wonderful chance to see the Artists studios and hear what they want to say about their work.

It is a reminder that Sarasota is blessed to have so many talented and established artists. I hope this open studio series will expand awareness and appreciation of this treasure in our midst.

The next Open Studio is February 4. Put it in your calendar and when you go take your checkbook support the artists, enrich your life and bring beauty into your home with their creations.

The Sun is Returning

Last night marked the Winter Solstice, the shortest day and longest night of the year. A time of cold and dark has come.  For many this event serves as an astronomical marker and a metaphorical symbol. We are entering a period of long nights when darkness seems to define our sense of time.  The truth is that with the passing of each day moments of light will be added to the daily cycle replacing darkness with light.  The sun is returning.   With the return of the sun we are reassured night will not last forever.  Light will prevail. The energy of the sun will cast light into the places of darkness and shadow.  The light reveals what could not be seen in the dark.  The suns promise of energy, creation, light, warmth and rebirth is the hope showing us the way through the dark.   Take a moment turn your face to the sun and accept the reassurance from the warmth.
