Finding Art in the Pumpkin Patch

There’s so much art in nature and a great example of this is the pumpkin patch. My son and I visited the local pumpkin patch and I was mesmerized by the ongoing rows of beautiful pumpkins. Such a richness of color, in addition to occasional white pumpkins popping out to give their own creative form of beauty. It’s so much fun finding the beauty in the most simplistic things.

In the spirit of the Rio Olympics: French art photographer JR has placed breathtaking artwork through out Rio de Janeiro and has captivated the hearts of everyone around the world.

“The idea is to evoke these athletes who train all over the world with the dream of making it to the Olympics. Sometimes they fall just short, like Mohamed (the Sudanese high jumper), who was injured just before coming to Rio,” JR said.

Joe Camoosa’s Vivid Works of Art

Joe Camoosa has a creative imagination that is clearly seen in his paintings. When I look at his artwork, my eyes start to see different images and slowly a story starts to appear. Of course, each person may see a different story. That’s the beauty of Camoosa’s artwork.

“…Most of my work contains some semblance of a map.  Making and using a map is a way to understand what is in front of me, a tool for discovery that aids my journey toward new and unnameable destinations.  In addition to cartography, my paintings and drawings explore the relationships between color, space and movement.”-Joe Camoosa

About Camoosa:

Joe Camoosa was born in New Jersey, and currently resides in Atlanta, GA. He received his MFA in Painting & Drawing at the University of Georgia, and graduated from Florida State University where his focus was Mass Communications and Anthropology.
