Reflections and Shadows

I have for some time been fascinated with reflections and shadows. Most namely reflections in still water and the shadows caused by the sun. The shadow selves that are created, simple outlines that capture a moment. Without detail they encapsulate the essence.
 I feel like making reflections and shadows the theme of some further exploration over the next months. But for now I leave you with a series entitled Abhain Rath Reflections, which I took whilst in the Scottish Highlands several years ago. Simple rotated images of a slow moving river. The froth on the river creating magical snow like swirls. Edited on Light room.

New Beginnings

I had a dream two nights ago, in which I owned a pub. I had decided to live there but was taking no responsibility for running it. I had appropriated a lounge room for my living space and became a little disgruntled when anyone accidentally spilled into my space from the pub. However one day I decided to explore and I realised that there was a lovely beer garden and even a swimming pool that I had never noticed. As I looked around my lounge room I noticed that there were big display fridges full of delights that looked fresh, but had been on display for so long that they might not be. I couldn't remember how long I had occupied the space for and so suddenly became very worried that I might accidentally poison someone. So in my dream I decided it was time for me to take control of the pub. get my license and learn how to run it. 

I made the assumption that this dream was guidance for my life, it is the new year after all and if I were still in the northern hemisphere its almost time for a spring clean and so i felt it was apt to wipe the slate clean of my old blog and start anew fresh. So welcome to the new Rebecca Home Art, a journey in artistic exploration.
