It’s been two weeks since my last post. My friend, Flavie Beaudet, visited us in Arizona and her companionship took precedence over everything else. We enjoyed six days of sun and warmth in Sedona and Gila Bend—what a treat! As artists, art is never far from the conversation, and documenting what we witness is strong.
I brought my studio outside once again as I absorbed my surroundings with an unconventional eye. As a lover of landscapes, I could finally share with a friend from back home what I perceived in this astonishing—stupéfiant environment.
Textures and colours of Arizona suited Flavie’s fierce sense of design. In the past, Moroccan patterns have influenced her creations.
We soon watched out for each other's obsessions. This past week, I was fixated on the sky with its fabulous clouds. More on that later.
Flavie photographed motifs nature gifted within cacti, trees, desert plants, shadows, hay...
There were rocks to photograph...
... then there were rocks.
Since my camera was always in hand, I recorded Flavie documenting patterns. I’m looking forward to seeing what will become of this photographic archive of Arizona.
We all document our thoughts and ideas in different ways, what is your process? I would love to hear.
