The photo prompt from The daily post at WordPress this week is intricate. This one got me thinking. There are so many places to find great examples of things that are intricate.
But I would have to say that once again, nature proves to be the supreme artist. Have you really stopped to look at a leaf, a flower, or any other random thing in nature? The intricate design, the color scheme, just the flow of everything that nature does is perfect. Every artist wants to be able to create the perfection that nature does, well, naturally.
These leaves are just beginning to grow. They are unfurling in the spring sun, their color is a beautiful fresh green, tinted with just the right amount of red. The intricate veins in the leaves are spaced perfectly.
And what about these seed pods, more affectionately known as helicopters. They too are fresh and new, and are an interesting combination of red and green that is perfect. The intricate veins that arc gracefully with the shape of the seed, breath life into what has the potential to be even more trees.
People certainly have the ability to create beautiful, and intricate objects. I took this photo of these beadwork pieces at the rendezvous. The man who created these beautiful pieces taught me his beading skills. Learning his technique enabled me to take my own beadwork to a better level. I have loved, and admired beadwork since I was a little girl. Teaching myself to bead many years ago, I quickly learned what an intricate, and precise work this is. This work is a great example of just how wonderful beadwork can be.
