Description On my window sill, a bouquet of aging flowers in a brick red pitcher bathe my window sill in sunlight that is no longer yellow, such as we think sunlight to be. Instead, the color of the vessel has spilled over onto the sill, a color that fills the mind and soul of all who view it to the exclusion of all other colors. But just for this moment. In the next moment another color may over ride the red to such an extent that we may forget the red entirely. Strangely and wonderfully, colors have lives all their own and we have been given the gift of being there in such moments when a color takes on a hue that it will never possess again. Thankfully for us, such moments are every moment.
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.
