Elk, that was a wonderful interview!
It's fun to see friends in different places and to learn more about them.
Thank you, as always, for sharing so much of yourself & your art.

Renee Howell said...

Beautiful partial/complete photos. Love how you see the world and share your words. And good choice on the list of todo's - I would have watered the garden first, too. Enjoy your day!

those black & white places were singing to you! and the interview! i love how much attention you paid as a child, how your parents contributed, probably unknowingly, to the artist you have become.

I loved reading your interview. I enjoyed reading about how your philosophy is a thread through all you do.

I heartily agree that you create a "gentle mood" at your blog. I often feel myself become calm when I read your words, see your work, and enjoy your comments.

Hurray that you create before you sweep. The world needs more of it!

A great interview! Congrats! And I agree, love the feel of stone in my palm.

Betsy said...

Wish I could send you some of our rain for your garden! Then you could play more! ha.

lovely photos, as always. I've always had a 'thing' for stained and beveled glass. So gorgeous!

Tracy said...

FANTASTIC interview and look at your work, Elk... Congratulations on a wonderful feature. Glad you too a moment to stop and share it all with us. Happy Week, my friend. ((HUGS)) P.S. Many thanks for your kind thoughts on my painting. I felt a bit shy to share it at first, but glad I did. :o)

I love all the patterns -- man-made and natural -- in your images today. And what a joy to read your interview! I have always responded on a very visceral level to your work, and I think it may be because I love the idea of using discovered materials, whether they be from nature or frugality, to create something beautiful.

These images are a moment of hushed quiet in a busy life ... thank you.

Anna said...

Elk, you've captured some of my favorite things - reflections, geometrics, cast shadows, and all in B&W. Just Stunning!!! Looking forward to reading your feature.

wonderful interview.
as i've said many times before - you are a true artist. these window photos have a deeper meaning of your reflective personality and your vision.

Jeanne Klaver said...

Thank you so much for sharing this interview with us. As always, the photos speak volumes!

kimmie said...

Water yourself and then water the garden and the dishes :)
Beautiful reflections .... My favorite

joanne said...

beautiful... i don't know how i lost track of your beautiful site awhile ago, but am so glad to have found you again... such a lovely place to just stop for a moment and breathe out...

Becca said...

Your photos here are stunning as are your simple words. Thinking along the same lines I took some similar photos today. Something I never really noticed at "home" but visiting the beauty of the mountains in Washington it jumped out at me. Your interview was wonderful to read!

forgetmenot said...

What lovely photos--the B&W, the shadows, the reflections, and that lovely arched doorway--all make for beautiful and interesting pics. Very nice. Mickie :)
