Nature is my catalyst for creativity. Alone, the lichen covered stone is a masterpiece. Then, I add some filters, manipulate it a bit and you have a mysterious image. A satellite image of land, lakes, and vegetation on Earth? An image from NASA of an exoplanet? Caribbean beaches pocked with orange umbrellas? What do you see? What an intricate texture for a piece of stained glass or a dope pattern for a pair of leggings!
