I was fortunate enough to take a trip last year to a place I had only dreamed of going; New York!
At the top of my list of things to see and do, was of course the Statue Of Liberty. "Would it be bigger than I imagined, would I love it even more in person, would I be disappointed". As awesome as it was seeing the Lady across the harbor, with her golden torch of freedom held high, does not even compare to rounding the bend and seeing her in all her glory up close. Yes, she was more than I dreamed she would be. More magnificent than any picture I had ever seen.
As I made my way around the statue, taking pictures that I knew would never do justice to that which was before me, I tried to take closeups of the beauty of the statue. Amazing to me, were the folds, so beautiful the attention to detail.
Here, is my interpretation of one of the images I captured that day. My intention was that upon initial viewing of this piece, one would think it to be an abstract painting, if the title were not known. This is series one in the Collection, that will comprise different sections of The Statue of Liberty.
As seen from behind, looking up, "The Folds of Liberty".
Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy.
All I've ever thought about and dreamed about, was being an artist and painting.
