I am always impressed with the way an artist sees the world. What looks like a giant pile of junk to me can look like a thing of beauty with the right perspective.
My creative skills are pretty pathetic in the area of physical art. I can’t draw, paint or even arrange my furniture in patterns that my guests find acceptable. So when I see true talent in these areas, I am always in awe.
In my hometown I am lucky enough to know an amazing photographer who is a phenomenal artist. Ashley Fieldin takes beautiful, thought-provoking pictures under the name of her company A Global Walk Photography . I have two in my office and one in my living room and enjoy looking at them throughout the day.
If you are local and would like to meet the artist and see her work in person, Ashely has a show coming up August 6th from 7:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at 2900 Ballahack Road in Chesapeake. There will be refreshments and the music of Over the Ocean, Musicplayer and Imagination Station. All of the proceeds from the ticket ($5 at the door), art and refreshment sales will go toward Ashley’s upcoming trip to Germany. She will be working with children overseas, as well as trying to capture images of their daily lives, in an effort to educate us on their reality.
And to get you in the right frame of mind, Ashley has agreed to let me give away 2 of her photographs! These 8 X 10 pictures can be mailed to anyone in the U.S., so if you are not local, please feel free to enter!
