Description I've had this calla lily blossom for a week now and it shows no signs of aging. Do they normally last this long, or am I special? I don't know, never having had one before. I wanted to do something rather holiday-ish with it. I had all these grand ideas for a lavish bouquet, the star of which would be the lily. But you know what? Once I got the flower out along with everything red and green in my plant shed, I saw that daylight was fading fast. So I quickly dropped my armload of plant stuff and set up a quick backdrop on my deck, lay the lily down and placed some simple red berries in its throat. I topped the little arrangement with a pair of berries gracefully placed on the lily's lip. Liking the result, I remembered that I sometimes need to be in a rush to re-discover the concept that simplicity is way underrated.
Brenda Leitow Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement Photography is one of the most essential things to a happy life, in my world. Every time I get out my camera I go out and bathe myself in light and color and line and texture... and everything in the world around me. Photography is a very emotional art for me. When I take photos in the rain, or in the morning dew, or when the light gets soft near sunset, or sharp at sunrise, the light creates such an atmosphere that I can almost feel the colors melting right into my being, creating their lasting impressions. My job as an artist is to capture colors, not always as I see them, but also how I imagine them to be. I manipulate light and color to my desire. It's rather like a prism, bending the light, showing color. Only as a photographer I bend the light less precisely, leaving some breathing space for the light to find its own path. The light creates itself in that way, taking away my control, and does amazing things with color that never even occurred to me to imagine.
