Land Art

Art will never stop amazing me! Even though I can quote a thousand different artist through the ages, could tell you in depth about a single painting style and still I am in awe of what I don't know. I have just discovered Andy Goldsworthy and am reading on his life, works and words. Here is a quote that has inspired me and I feel we can apply to life:
"I have become aware of raw nature is in a state of change and how that change is the key to understanding. I want my art to be sensitive and alert to changes in material, season and weather. Often I can only follow a train of thought while a particular weather condition persists. When a change comes, the idea must alter or it will, and often does, fail. I am sometimes left stranded by a change in the weather with half-understood feelings that have to travel with me until conditions are right for them to appear."
This man and his work has spoken to me in a way that I can't even explain. It's not something I would have ever imagined was in existence! Here is a link to his sight so you can see and feel what I have.
This is a small thing
that his art has inspired.
Seed beads and wire.
