Jeanne Apelseth, Rapid City, South Dakota Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement Color, light, form…..when we are young we all have an inborn sense of delight and fascination for simple, every day concepts….......brilliant green grass so vivid that you have to shade your eyes, light dancing on water, reflections in a puddle, leaves falling from a tree...and then at some point most people seem to lose their youthful fascination in these everyday things.
I have tried to maintain my excitement, my curiosity in the simple things in life and my dream is to share what I see through my photography and art. “Look! See!...it's a cloud that looks like a powerful white buffalo stampeding across the azure sky, a snow drift with a shadow resembling the hazy New York skyline. If you look..faces and places will appear out of nowhere and bring back distant memories of a favorite place, a memory long forgotten.
