Description So. I got to looking at my tulip, my faithfull tulip, that has been sitting on my windowsill for about two weeks now. The stems are starting to turn a pale yellow, but the flowers, amazingly, are still going strong. One blossom has shed its first petal. Having dropped it so politely on my sunny windowsill, I took the opportunity to study it closely. I'm always drawn in to the details of the little things, and I see stories in the lines and curves and bumps and the petal or whatever takes on a life other than being what it is. I took a peak through the empty spot where the petal had been and I saw this incredible downward slope with two lines as if to keep a luge in the track. You can see it if you take a look. It's pretty wonderful. Only now I have the Tulip Olympics going on in my head. And on and on and on....
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.
