Hello! I'm making a series of art videos about flowers, and I was wondering if I could include this piece in one of my videos. It would be set to an original classical-style composition (by me) about this flower. I'll be sure to credit you and link to your page if you say yes. Here's a link to see the kind of music it is: [link]
My personal tastes run to "darker" music...but so what?
The music at the link was beautiful & I'd be honored to have an image of mine included in your video...so yes- you have my permission to use "Beetle & the Lady's Slipper". Let me know when you post it?
Lady Slippers used to grow in the deep woods near my home growing up on the coast of Maine.They would come back every year in the same spot.I was sworn to secrecy as were all in my family about their location. Even though they are officially protected my parents felt it safer not to share,so no one would pick them.We would sometimes take a walk en masse to witness their beauty and explosive growth and bloom.This was how I was introduced to the natural environment,with a profound respect and responsibility,sometimes to the point of hiding from outsiders the location of treasures we loved.My father said the way to share them was through Art...That way people could share the beauty we enjoyed without endangering the living flora and fauna.
Yup...at some pont I decided hunting was cool under 3 conditions. 1. You intended to eat your kill. 2. You were doing your shooting with a camera. 3. To make it a "sport", hunt the animal on an equal basis- knives if you're hunting tigers, sharp sticks if you're hunting deer, maybe a dump truck if you're hunting rhinos...
thank you...I have one or 2 more beetles in mind- & then hopefully they are out of my system- one I have the title to (the cart before the horse?), the other is just stretching? the imagery a little...
this is adorable, very un-organic as for a beetle i'd say, even though the shapes are perfectly organic but the composition, it gives lots of geometry to the whole thing
the paralism between the beetle and the orchid is visible yet subtle at the same time
oh, and orchids do have incredibly whimsical shapes and you captured it perfectly
beautiful looking work. oddly enough i can imagine the beetle to sound really loud if it was audibly heard.-Like some kind of acoustic generator. it has a very mechanical look and radioactive quality. Really loving the strong imagery.
