Stephen Brubaker, Somerset, NJ, USA Member Since October 2006 Artist StatementNature is coy and her beauties are subtle. On rare occasions, however, I have been able to capture images that distill the natural beauties of an object or scene. My strengths lie in absracting recognizable things in ways that reduce them to bare elements and in being interested in color, texture, and light. I hope to learn the essentials of composition one day, until then my images will have to get by on some other quality. I hope you can enjoy them for what they offer.
