Agave adventure

Agave drew my attentions while visiting Liisa's yard and my camera kept wanting to get in there closely.  I seemed to be looking at it differently than ever before and now with my new macbook I am playing with the images in a simpler fashion.  Are these art or nature studies?  Will I paint from these images or will some of what has been observed come out in another media.  I was seeing some of the lines and colors as part of silk paintings, elements in silk scarves or the textures cropping up in beeswax work.  Is what we do as artists continual food for our artistic creation or are we just fooling ourselves as we play that we are working?

Play and work are, in the best sense of both, the same thing...I really love those photographs...Bruce
