ARBUTUS COLORS, IN THE SNOW BANK, 48 INCH IN THE ROUND, I love the way the garden art is isolated by the snow. Blast of primary colours in the snowbank.




Jack Shadbolt in his book Act of Art termed the phrase “isolate and clarify”. I used to drum this phrase into my students heads. another phrase let the horse out of the barn for a good run a good metaphor for creativity. Then sit back with u coffee and isolate and clarify. Meaning what are the essential forms that excite your imagination, isolate around them bring them foreward in the picture plane. like editing in writing.
