ARTIST SKETCH - LISA G. PUTMAN

Among the amazingly talented artists from RedBubbe, Lisa G. Putman definitely distinguished herself as a nature lover, her images describing a surreal and in the same time extremely truthful journey through the world we all live in. I've found on her website biographical notes I want to share:
"Lisa G. Putman is an Arkansas native, currently residing in Tennessee. Her photography showcases her subjects in natural lighting and vivid color. Lisa’s specialties include wildlife, nostalgia, and rural scenes. Her award winning photography has been featured in local art exhibits and online galleries.
Lisa’s background is in portrait photography with 22 years experience including college credit hours in fine art and photography as well as years of work experience. Lisa’s is also a Certified Picture Framer with the Professional Picture Framer’s Association with 17 years of experience custom framing artwork, and 13 years of experience teaching others to frame artwork. All of this experience, coupled with her passion for great art, have resulted in a keen eye for photography." - source: artist's website.
Few favourite images from her galleries:
1. Second Chance
2. November Morning
3. Brilliance
4. Sunday Afternoon
5. August Beauty
6. Backlit Morning Stream
In her own words Lisa gives a touching artistic statement:
"I've discovered, for me, although photography at times can be quite an undertaking, it is not a job, it's a journey. Photography is a calling, a life long process of learning and improving. Every moment of it is a fulfilling experience."

MONDAY FINDS

It's a mild Winter here, some days the wind blows very hard, some days "levante" covers the sky and city in a cloud making us feel like prisoners into a "glass bottle", some days is really aggressive Summer again only to wake up the next morning by rain's rhythmic accords; so many seasons into only one...
Enjoy !!!

ARTIST SKETCH: MARIA RAFAELA SCHULZE-VORBERG

Maria Rafaela Schulze-Vorberg was born in Bukumbi/Tanzania and she's lived in Quito/Ecuador, Birnbach/Germany, Cali/Colombia, Cedar Rapids/USA, Lima/Peru and Bonn/Germany.
She likes to define her art as "poetry of light":
"I feel a deep bond between myself and the virtue of light pulsing through all of creation. My photography is devoted to this magical world my inner and outer eyes want to discover and reveal. The camera is my instrument to convert the seemingly common into a rhythm of colours and light... revealing the poetry of light. It is my joy to behold these precious moments: the miracle of life dancing in ecstasy with the light at the threshold of heaven and earth.
To discover these miracles you don’t have to go far away. Many times it is just about changing perspectives, getting down to your knees, lying down on the ground, starting to see anew. You will be surprised about what you will perceive, how the daily and ordinary suddenly reveals the mystery of being deeply touched and embraced by beauty and light... you start listening to the silent song of light."

I've found her art beautiful, generous and touching. Her style explores feelings and faded dreams, sometimes revealing under a soft light sealed secrets; it seems all her images are the reflection of a sum of thoughts, hopes, dreams and pleasures.
I've chosen only few of her galleries:
- Eye-kissing light
- Passion of light
- Inner vision I
- Silent prayers
