Macro Close-up

Beauty is hidden in everything if you look close enough. That is what I endeavor to show you with my macro works of art. My little pot of Gerber daisies was used to create a large energized painting. Ordinary drying autumn leaves I began to rake one day show intricate colors and textures when viewed close-up.  Enjoy!

 

 

The Leaves Beneath My Feet

Autumn is by far my most favorite season of the year, never long enough; a fleeting moment in time.  The colors of autumn’s  leaves hold such beauty.  I was raking in early November and noticed the leaves beneath my feet had the most beautiful “splotches” of color on them. I gathered up the ones that “spoke to me” along with acorns and other duller leaves surrounding them into a bucket  and threw them out onto the grass. This beautiful close-up macro painting was the result. It is truly one of my very favorites.

Source energy is very special to me. I purchased a pot of Gerber daisies to brighten my summer patio. After summer passed instead of throwing the “annual” away  I  decided to try and over-winter the plant in my garage. It bloomed in January!  The next summer the blooms were lovely again. This painting was from an  early morning when the  leaves were covered with rain drops and upturned from the wind.  The colors of the flowers are vibrant and complement the blue green of the leaves. We keep this work  of art (24″x36″) on a large easel in our living room. It is so calming and invigorating at the same time. The name source energy seemed to be perfect for it.

During the first spring in my current residence I noticed a brilliant tiny spot of white among all the green at the edge of the woods. I found it was a tiny rose on a wild bush that had been there many years. I grabbed my camera and took a macro shot. When I viewed it on my computer I realized I had taken it with the  green leaf framing it on the right side. It was the only rose on the bush at that time and all  others that bloomed later had much more pink color in them. How amazing nature is to produce something so delicate on a shrub that has rigid sharp thorns.
