Experimental Photograph


This theme is as wide open as the prairie sky. How will you portray “Experimental”? Will it be the fresh lemon-cranberry scones you whipped up, tired of the usual blueberry muffins? Will it be a close-up of the piano where you just composed an original in a key new to you? Will it be capturing a subject using varying compositions or photographic techniques? Regardless of how you choose to show us “Experimental,” I’m looking forward to seeing the results.

This early painting of my son’s was leaning against the wall in my spare room. When I walked into the room the sunshine was decorating the painting. I loved the way it blended into the scene so I snapped several photos. I experimented with the changing sunlight until I captured this image which I think plays into the concern on the young woman’s face. It causes the viewer to wonder what does this young women see. Is it a UFO, tornado, animal/bird, Angel, Spirit?

It’s fun creating stories from average events/things in our environment.


“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” ~ Frank Herbert, Dune ~

Do you have a quote or story to go along with this sunlit painting?

Love and Light!

  2. This photo is gorgeous, the sunlight is making movement, it’s like she will come out of the frame! You have good eyes to catch the light this way. By the way, I love the name of your blog!

  4. What a dramatic painting! Is your son still a painter? There is really something to what he has created here! Thanks, Sandy!

  5. Ah, lovely idea. Unfortunately, my son is gone now (lymphoma, 2014), but I really enjoy his work on my walls as a reminder of his artist’s work. Apologies for sharing this sad news via a comment, I have posted a few times on my blog about his death, but I’m not quite sure who knows and who doesn’t. Happy for you that your son is still here and has a profession as an artist! 🙂
