Wooden Plank-The New Alternative Collection

April 22, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Wooden Plank-my newest edition to the Alternative Collection, is inspiration from the hundreds of artists that bring joy to my life.  

My inspiration comes in many different forms and from many different places.  Here the flooring on an old ship, shipwrecked underwater, raised from the sea, leaves deep grooves, patterns of salt, plant life, and history undone. Wavering through rough seas, and unforgiving winds, a storm collides against a warm current ripping the large sails, recklessly spinning the old ship.  The vessel is tossed from side to side taking in too much water, giving way to the grasp of the unforgiving storm.  The ship sinks quickly as timber wood is heard snapping like soft twigs in the wind. The vessel is gone and is seen momentarily peering beneath the muscular surface, before crashing to the sea floor. Nearly one hundred years later, the ship is found, treasures are located, and stories re-told.  The wooden planks are linear with deep groves, with no seams detected.  The length of these planks are impressive, each one if sanded down will reveal its inner beauty.  Their color, their story, the footsteps, their life.

This is my inspiration.

The Alternative Collection was NOT created with the use of a DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) camera.
