Happy Monday from Australia!
It’s time for a name change for this blog. Things change and grow – so do we and the things we are doing, especially in the creative world. We are always moving forward.
When I started this blog 4 years ago, I named it ‘Fine Arts Journal‘ because it was exactly that – a visual online diary for my artworks and photography.
Today I have a different feel for what I am doing, so I want my blog name to reflect my curiosities and experiments.. to share the beauty I find in crazy places, the detailed view of things and a touch of humor here and there.
While this definitely remains an arts journal (my place to share my photography, designs and artworks) and will be as long as I write here – it’s not only that. For me it’s about the little things, the everyday things, the magic and beauty beneath our feet or above our heads – the things we would be amazed by, if we only knew they were there.
Looking through the lens allows me to see those things – to be amazed at the little worlds within a flower, a dewdrop or a rusty old car – It captivates me and fascinates me.
My hope is always to translate some of what I see into artworks and also to share some fun, hope and encouragement along the way.
A wordy post? Yes, but I do like words. So… my new blog name?
