About Mental Seeds
I remember distinctly the day I decided to become a garden photographer. It was the day in 1984 that my friend Ellen showed me a begonia story in a garden magazine. I was ripe to change my career as a commercial photographer and realized “I could do that !”
I have forged a career as a garden photographer but it is born of a love of plants – a love for the earth and being outdoors in it. The connection to art, to photography, and to communicating what I see I understand less well. It is something I need to explore, and now begin with this blog, Mental Seeds.
You can find more about me on the credits page of my website, but this blog will be about art, whatever that means. Whatever that means ?! Find out in Michael Kimmelman’s book “The Accidental Masterpiece” where I found the term “mental seeds”.
“Art may be a state of mind … a mental seed planted by the artist, which is reproduced in as many different variations as the number of people in whom the memory exists. What makes art good is partly its power to proliferate as a variable memory, and intangible concept, filtered through individual consciousness.”
Enjoy what you find here. If a seed sprouts in your consciousness let me know.
