Natural Patterns And Colors

Be it rocks, flowers, ice, trees, sand or sandstone, there's always exciting forms to be found in nature. Isolating them to create abstract and intimate interpetations is one of my favorite pastimes when the light may not be ideal for larger landscapes. Somtimes even wildlife present themselves in what could be considered an abstract sense.
