I have always loved this photograph I made some 22 years ago on traditional B&W film. For me, it captured a moment of love and tenderness between mother and daughter altough this is a slightly different image from the same series. This particular photograph is a 'close -up' version one of a small series I made. I had forgotten that my 'little cousin' Lise, whom I remember fondly playing with my 'little sister' Lorraine at the family cottage, had made the attached beautiful drawing based on this image. I finally saw it this spring during a recent visit. It brought back a lot of wonderful memories and I thought I would share her drawing along with her thoughts about her process.
It's an honour indeed to have one's artwork become the inspiration for another artist's art. Here is what Brenda had to say.
Visually captivating, ‘Mirrored Maze’ was inspired by a photograph from fine art photographer Mike Grandmaison that the artist came across while surfing the internet. The painting depicts a resplendent display of colourful fall foliage. Radiant reflections dance across the surface of the water, giving the impression of a mirrored maze; tangled branches, analogous shades of autumn, and crystal blue water. The image immediately stirred an artistic response within, appealing for a creative expression using paints.
