"One of a Kind"
Mixed media acrylic painting
One day I was taking photos of a friends land out in the country. Their land is beautiful, full of different landscapes and textures.
This was a project in which I would come out and take photos at the peak of each season.
It was the spring photo shoot and I was "out of my mind excited"
to see a hillside full of beautiful white flowers.
I was literally laying on the ground in the woods getting awesome macro shots.
That wonderful, in the moment of beauty- feeling came over me. I loved it!
That is until I realized that my keys had fallen out of the my pocket.
Yep. In the woods. keys. gone.
They were gone. So, I called a friend to rescue me and then continued taking photos.
There among those little white flowers on the hill was a gorgeous white flower standing tall.
Different from all the rest.
One of a kind.
Beautifully simple, but almost seemed out of place.
But the beauty of this story is that out of that bummer moment came a beautiful photograph,
which I just recently painted and felt that "out of my mind excited" feeling once again.
I love art.
