Flora-calligraphy

I often take photos of petals, flowers, stems, twigs, leaves and so on that fall onto sidewalks, roads and patios. I love playing with the calligraphy they form. Summer Languishes and Tribute show results that came from playing digitally with what I call flora-calligraphy. Here are a couple more.

From the Core

Seeking Contentment

I print and lightly gesso these pages to form wonderful backgrounds to paint on, or use them as collage elements in larger paintings. I spend many happy hours stitching them. This is just the beginning of what the flora-calligraphy writes for me to interpret.

One great question underlies our experience, whether we think about it or not: what is the purpose of life? From the moment of birth every human being wants happiness and does not want suffering. Neither social conditioning nor education nor ideology affects this. From the very core of our being, we simply desire contentment. Therefore, it is important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness.

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).
