I was so honored this week to discover that one of my photos (you'll recognize it from the header of this blog) was the inspiration for a painting by a complete stranger. The day after I opened my redbubble shop, my photograph September Sea was (amazingly) featured on their front page.
An artist from Germany, Eckhard Besuden, saw my photograph and wrote to me. He said it brought back memories of his brother, who died at the age of 16 but who loved the summer sea. "He loved the summer waves and you have made a shot of just that summer sea with blue and yellow. That impressed me very much and touched my heart." And so he re-envisioned the blue and yellow and created his own summer sea.
I've been so inspired by the amazing photographers and artists I've met here in blog-land and on flickr, and I'm so humbled that my work has touched someone else. That's what it's all about. Thank you!
You can find some of my work, and Eckhard's, along with thousands of other photographers, artists, writers, and creative souls, on redbubble. Support your favorite photographer or artist by purchasing their work. It puts beauty in your hands and dinner on our tables. xoxo
