May: Art to Inspiration

YES! It's time for another installment of Art to Inpsiration, folks!

This month, we're looking at Echoes of Fragrant Voice by Jo Howe

What an interesting piece of work! Abstract and minimalist, with just two shades, light and dark. Which is very much what I look for in subject matter, as a photographer. Lightness and darkness together creating shape, and you need one shape to highlight the other.

In breaking this beautiful work into basic shapes of light and dark, I was then inspired by my own minimalist photograph taken in Santorini. Light and dark working in harmony.

Brilliant, yet again!! I love how deconstructed the image and aligned the composition and contrast to one of your gorgeous photos. Simply wonderful!

This is too perfect! The colours are spot on and the architecture of the space is perfectly reflective of the piece.

so smart!! Love the shapes and colors. Great interpretation!

This is a great translation from art to daily musings! I wished I could do an art to inspiration post but I normally don't understand art (unless it's colours then I could relate!).

Another stunning Art To Inspiration post - you should publish a book with all those fantastic images! Many, many compliments!
