STORY BEHIND THE PRINT

I was in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park this summer (2017) to view and photograph black bears.  Since the best time to view and photograph wildlife is early morning at dawn and in the evenings right before sunset, I have time in-between to scout, hike, and explore.  

On this particular day, it was overcast and very calm.  Bears are usually in the lower elevations, so I decided I wanted to go up and check out the higher elevations near the summit at Clingman's Dome.  

I was hiking and found this beautiful Tiger Lily near the very beginning of the trail to Andrews Bald.  I paused, and I doubled checked my vision because it was in such perfect condition.  

I sat down and enjoyed the flower.  I relaxed and soaked in the positive effects of this ethereal piece of natures best artwork.  I wondered when it bloomed and how long it would stay in this perfect condition.  With the constant weather changes and variables in nature, I knew that this flower wouldn't remain like this for long.

It was slightly overcast, and there were some fog and mist at this elevation.  The Great Smoky Mountains are famous for their "smoke" (mist and fog).  I took my time and photographed the flower from several different perspectives and a variety of compositions.  I purposely used a lens that would soften the background and allow the flower to be the main subject.  The background that you see in this fine print are the layers of the mountains and the mist and fog that covered them on this morning.  

If you are looking to add a timeless piece of original art to your collection, I think this limited edition platinum/palladium fine print is worth considering.  Platinum/Palladium prints have a proven track record of being valuable pieces of artwork that started in the late 19th century.  If you have never seen a handmade platinum/palladium fine art print in person, I encourage you to visit your local museum or art gallery and ask to see some in person.  Digital images on a computer screen cannot convey the three-dimensional nature of the viewing experience or the soft and subtle gradation of tone that only the human eye can detect.  Art is made to be experienced in person, not via a computer screen.
