Dreams Awake ..... the ART of Joan Taylor Stokes
The beautiful art of nature inspires me.
This piece was inspired by the whirling vortex created in Photoshop from one of my photos. It portrays the faded blooms of summer being drawn relentlessly into the cosmos.
Mannequins fascinate me! They are vacuous, enigmatic, inscrutable, and portray a moody aloofness.
My mannequins have become an integral part of my creative process.
Colour or black and white? I have always loved the original coloured version of this river composite. The black and white conversion has its own beauty too and reminds me of an ink drawing.
A touch of my favourite red!
Joy has no season.
I work in the moment enjoying the place where time stands still.
