Welcome to A Walk Through The Universe for 2011! We are starting anew, on a different day of the week and on an adjacent path....following the larger topic of color throughout the year, looking at a different hue each month. Week by week, we'll see that color through a changing lens...perhaps art, or history, or nature...it'll be a surprise, even to me, as we saunter along on a path of discovery! It's winter here in South Dakota, which naturally makes me think of white as the perfect starting point.
I find myself gathering images of white on white among my etsy favorites, as I am so attracted to the subtle play of "color" that happens in arrangements of various mixes of white. Here is a selection of some beauties among my favorite items and shops. It occurred to me, as I began the actual selection process for this post, that I was gathering images of the still life. I am attracted to these photographs because of the composition, the way the light and shadows dance and for the simple beauty of these forms. Each is a reflection of history...of the passage of time captured in simple objects...moments distilled. Each photo has a link to the shop, where you'll find more beautiful pieces...Enjoy!
