Life imitates art, imitates life
This weeks photo prompt from The Daily Post is, life imitates art. My first thought was Al’s sculptures. Often times his sculptures will be born from an idea he finds either in real life, or a photo. He then refines it to be what his vision for that is.
This raven sculpture is his best selling piece. The Storyteller was created because we love to watch the ravens, and listen to the stories they have to tell.
This past summer in Wyoming, this raven was telling stories right outside my window.
This is a new raven sculpture that Al has been working on. I took some artistic licence with the photo and put the sculpture in the sky.
Like the photo of this real raven.
Life imitates art, imitates life.
For the Dogwood 52 challenge we are to take a faceless portrait. Tell someones story without showing their face. My friend Rita who has been hanging out in the desert with us these last couple weeks is a weaver. She does beautiful things and sells them at rendezvous. I thought shooting a photo of her from behind and working her loom, would be perfect. This tells the story of who she is, and what she does.
