Description Dear Brenda, So, I have been gone a long time and I hear that you are really starting to miss me terribly. I have even heard that you have gone so far as to pollute your home with those things that you buy in stores that are called 'Potted Plants.' Really now. I never thought you'd stoop so low. I understand that this has been an exceptionally long and bitter winter, but you are not the only one, by any means, who is missing me. But it will soon be March and things will start to pop. Take a look even now and you will see that the buds are swelling on the trees and shrubs. Any time now Skunk Cabbage will be blooming. (I understand you're on a hunt for one to photograph. Keep your nose open.) And just think: the maples are already running sap out for syrup. And folks have tapped the trees and are already yielding a crop. Think how it will taste on pancakes next winter. So try not to suffer so much. Remember these things and take heart. Life is stirring under the snow. Yours truly, Green
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.
