Nature’s artistry…

Nature is the original creator of designs and patterns. Some aid survival such as camouflage. Other patterns change by the moment such as these images of the ocean. Sunlight, clouds and winds are part of nature’s toolbox used to form these passing conceptions. God’s artistry inspires and challenges our limited imaginations.

The eyes are drawn naturally to the lightest area; here it is part of the ocean. The rest of the ocean mimics the calm atmosphere above. Copyright 2017 Pamela Breitberg

Key West, Florida is historically renown as a home for crafters and artisans. The unique is highly valued and proudly displayed including this custom designed car decor. Nature takes no back seat to the colors and designs found throughout Key West’s Old Town and perhaps inspires creative urges.

This tree, Starburst, aka Shooting Star (Clerodendrum Quadriloculare), blooms only in the late winter and early spring, so was in full bloom last month during our visit. The large, full, blossoms command attention, which upon closer examination divulge its artistic aptitude.
