Growing Old

Growing Old – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

This photograph is not of sadness for a barn that has seen better years and usage but is one of hope too. The barn is boarded up and barely standing. The old red tractor seems to be working still and is in use in making old-fashioned rectangular bails of hay.

One does not have to give up that which is aged. It is an antique and with the passage of time as with people, we should venerate and respect the elderly.

I see a happy face on the barn as one who reminisces of glorious by-gone days. I have put sparkles of light throughout the picture to offer feelings of expectancy in the future. Wishing everyone the best in their pursuit of their lives no matter whatever their calendar age or years.

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Magical Swan

Magical Swan

This is a drawing I created with India Ink, with old-fashioned ink wells and nib pens that flow onto the surface of the drawing pad. I scanned it and created more colour.  

I have emphasized the colour purple and according to ColorMatters website, “Taking all aspects of purple’s past and present into consideration, purple symbolizes magic, mystery, spirituality, the sub-conscious, creativity, dignity, royalty – and it evokes all of these meanings more so than any other color.”

Wheels, Gears and Cogs

Here is a rusted out piece of machinery consisting of Wheels, Gears and Cogs.  I am not sure exactly what this type of machinery is but the intricacies of the wheels, gears and cogs and how they are working together is amazing.  I find this image fascinating even if the machinery is rusted out and does not work anymore.

Thank you for liking, commenting and/or sharing.  Mary
