Influence of the outdoors

Influence of the Outdoors - Lake of the Isles sunset

Nature definitely has its influence on my work. Whenever I spend any amount of time outside I love to take it all in — the color and depth of the sky, the movement of clouds, the way tree branches hang down or protrude up, the colors in the clouds as the sun sets, the way green foliage looks against a deep blue sky. I frequently walk to the lakes near our apartment and study everything about the landscape there — the shapes of the lakes themselves from different vantage points, the ripples in the water (or the smooth, glassy surface on a windless day), the bunching of lily pads on the surface, the way the tall grasses and wildflowers move in the breeze along the shore.

Here are a few shots from recent walks around the neighborhood:
