With single digit temperatures, ocean water had frozen along the upper tide line this past weekend. This small shell fragment would be insignificant along a summer tide line. Buried within the frozen and crystallized sea water, though, it transformed into a small piece of impressionist art – painterly, indistinct – drawing me into the image.
I love beautiful landscapes and still lifes, but I also love gentle, almost mysterious compositions such as this one.
One object, but the many dew drops collected on the surface transform it into a delicate still life. Together the feather and dew create an almost meditative arrangement. Gentle, simple, yet exquisitely positioned and compellingly presented.
