Exploring the outdoors, with camera in hand, is an opportunity to look for natural lines that lead our eyes to different parts of a frame. Envision the bend of a stream, or the curve of a petal: how can you use these lines in your composition?
I love the wisps of lavender within the composition of this Cosmos.
Cosmos were one of my Mom’s favorite flowers. I remember her requesting I put them to canvas with my paints and brushes. I never took the time to do this for her and now that she’s gone it’s forever too late. I had the best mom in the world who loved me more than life itself. It saddens me to know I never painted them for her.
