DescriptionJasper and Lily were great friends. It was funny to watch them play. Lily being quite a bit younger, and quite a stinker to boot, liked to lay in wait for Jasper. She would frequently dash out from behind something as he walked past and would bat at and attack his tail. Sometimes he ignored her, sometimes he took after her as if her life was about to end. This particular face was often reserved for times when he would walk past the sofa and she would launch herself into the air and land on his back. He was a good sport. If she used her nails he never said anything. They were good buddies. She slept on the dog bed and he slept on the floor. What more can you say than that for what a good dog Jasper was?
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.
