This series began in 2016 while recovering from surgery. On my own and unable to move far beyond the couch for months I started playing around with my phone photographing the light changes on the floating flowers a blue glass bowl on my coffee table. Initially I thought they would be images to paint from when I recovered, but it began to morph into a series of it's own, growing almost by itself as the light, flowers, and my life changed with the seasons. I still photograph this personal pond and possibly will continue to do so until the bowl breaks.
