All The More...
An abstract still life study in macro.

"All the more reason to do it" my instructor said to me when I admitted abstracts are not my forte. Of course, he was correct. This study in abstract still life is not exhaustive by any means, but my ambition for this project was to explore color, shape and light from an abstract point of view. It is a departure from my past travel photos. The oil and water I worked with to create these images was constantly in motion, making it more challenging then I had anticipated. As an artist I am always looking for ways to challenge and stretch myself. This project accomplished those goals. I find when I delve into new aspects of photography, it allows me to see things from a new vantage point.

I was previously featured in a group show at BHGRE Haven Properties, #ourbatteredsuitcases, but this is my first solo show. I am a local artist living in Arroyo Grande with my dog, Dorothy, and currently working my way through the art program at Cuesta College. After traveling and living all over the United States, it's good to be back in my home state of California. Follow me on Instagram @bluellamastudio or at #allthemoreslo.

My exhibition will also be at Art in the Park in Morro Bay, May 27th-29th. Come see my street art work.
