I just discovered this photo of my nephew that I took the night of my What I Thought Was Once Mine is Now Ours opening at RMCAD in early September. A huge storm was brewing as friends arrived and I was grateful for the dynamic weather that paralleled my tornado sculpture. The sky felt enormous and saturated. Unbelievably, my sweet five year old nephew Sam found a plastic golden lightening bolt in the dirt right in front of the gallery. He held it up to the sky and I shot this image. So much beauty. I love that a plastic piece of otherwise junk takes on so much significance and relevance.
