BEWARE THE MIRE: A Beautiful Soul Emerging. Pond of Abundance. Ephemeral Art. Photography.
For Happy-Ever-After Endings
And people who after years of putting themselves:
Down or back or behind. Discover that they can come forward:
Because they have started to honor who they truly are:
A Beautiful Soul.
In my ephemeral art arrangements, I love to simulate an environment/landscape from natural elements that I've gathered from our local bushland. As the structure grows I can start to embellish it with other flowers and plants, usually from my or neighbouring suburban gardens.
The concept behind this piece was to replicate a swampy black pond/mire with its banks made from bits and pieces of lichen-covered branches and twigs and Australian indigenous plants/leaves and flowers: She Oaks and Grevillias. And then decorate it with an abundance of 'End of Winter turning into Spring' flowers: Fairy Azaelias and African Iris, Freesias and Violet Vanilla flowers.
Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it.
If we're frantic, life will be frantic. If we're peaceful, life will be peaceful.
And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace.
The image was reformated into a square for the Makers Place Challenge: Fit to Size: Disguise.
BEWARE THE MIRE: A Beautiful Soul Emerging. Pond of Abundance.
I wasn't sure what to call this piece. Initially, it was simply Pond of Abundance. But as I worked with the image for Makers Place, it also became: BEWARE THE MIRE: A Beautiful Soul Emerging. So now for Steemit, it's both.
BEWARE THE MIRE: A Beautiful Soul Emerging. Pond of Abundance was constructed from black seaweed floating in a shallow glass dish ~ Disguised by the beauty of flowers.
In another article, I'll show you how the entire piece was constructed. With the hidden symbols that underly a lot of my assemblages.
The assemblage was photographed by my pre-Sony incredibly inexpensive camera and so I ever so slightly stylized it with the Deep Dream Generator, using the original image as both the Base and the Style Images.
Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love.
The world changes when we change. The world softens when we soften.
The world loves us when we choose to love the world.
A creative who is learning to trust the mystery of what will be.
A spirit that is willing to fly into new creative realms and share the journey. ~Ally.
