Art: The Beard by Artist Nan Thompson

Nan's Alchemy - Alchemy is the ancient art (or magic) of converting a simple object into an item of value.  By taking a photograph of a flower, a fish, a leaf or a cloud I can bestow upon it a second life.  Now that brief moment in time is captured virtually forever.  Now that's magic!  That's alchemy!

My subject matter is not the expansive landscape; but the fascinating inner landscape.  I notice the striations in a rock face, the silk threads in a milkweed pod, and red berries cloaked in snow.  I love the sheer act of composing the image.  So totally immersed in my subject, I lose all sense of time.  I may skip eating or get soaked in pouring rain or get frozen fingers.

I want to express a feeling or emotion; or just a different way of looking at an everyday subject.  I hope to involve the viewer with their environment.  I am now working to combine my love of photography with my Paperwork.
