Description This is the second in a series of shots I originally took of lightening at night during a thunderstorm. The strike of the lightening forms a picture of a snakes tongue forking and lights up the foliage for an eerie scene.
Susan Cypher, Grand Junction Member Since March 2009 Artist Statement I am an eclectic artist, with my first love being music, as The Nightbird (music is available online at CD Baby). However, my husband and I both love photography (his work will be included, as well). One of our first dates was a photography shoot while he was taking a class, with me as his "model." He is my drummer now, as well, and our ultimate plan is to combine our art and music into a whole stage show, along with dance. I was very excited to find this community and plan to upload more of our visual work as we go along.
I also want to note that I am a member of the Art For Cancer Group, and the sale of certain pictures in my gallery are going to help fight Breast Cancer, a disease that has taken too many beautiful women from my life, and caused others countless pain.
As to my art, I have a fascination with lights in the dark, reflection, and shadow, which is why my first gallery here represents my work this last year with candlelight. I love the surreal effect one gets when taking the picture of something at night, and I love the microcosm of things--a single flower, the shape of a shadow, or the pattern of leaves. My husband, on the other hand, loves the macrocosm, loving the entire view, trying to get that perfect overall image.
Thank you for coming by. I hope you enjoy our work :) As I go along, I will be offering some of my husband's wonderful work, as well.
