I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!

I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.

Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.

Let me begin with this:

I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.

This goes under the heading of: Things I would have missed had I not been staring at the world through my lens ...

This tiny desert butterfly is called a "San Emigdio Blue" (Plebejus emigdionis) and its full wingspan is only about 1 cm at it's widest point. He was the dickens to catch (in a shot), too, because he was very active and would dash off as soon as I got near enough to catch him in macro ... ;oD

  2. Your photo of the little blue butterfly is truly amazing. I love seeing your photos and appreciate the artistry involved. Being a terrible photographer (the bottom of my purse or feet being some of my more spectacular shots) is a curse. Being able to recognize true genius a gift. Thank you for sharing your. Work.

  5. Very nicely done Robin Griggs Wood and I know from experience how tricky these small butterflies are. Managed Europe's smallest last year, the Grass Jewel - about the size of the smallest fingernail. So, about the same size as your beauty.
