ART OF MY SOUL DAY 7: YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHER INSPIRES AND IMPRESSES

Alex Hjelm and Me.
Mentally, my inner dials were tuned to yoga at 7pm.  That all changed when I received an invitation to the Alex Hjelm, Artist Reception at Zinnia Bistro.  

I made the executive decision to move yoga to 6am the next day and meet and celebrate a fellow artist.  

Wait, honestly what really drew me in was the complimentary wine, cheese and fruit platter.  I knew if I attended I would most definitely eat, drink and be merry.  

Food is a bad combination for hot yoga.  Practicing on a full bell is extremely uncomfortable and will make you want to vomit everywhere.
Zinnia's Marsala spiced fries with a glass of Pinot Noir.

After signing my own permission slip, I headed out to enjoy some amazing photography.  The work itself was inspiring but what left me ultimately impressed was the artist.  He was shy at first and  occupied the corner with his family.  Soon he ventured out to speak with those who came. 

I read his biography and discovered he was only 14!  Here was a young artist launching his dreams in between the drama that is adolescence and high school preparation.  

He has mastered the art of capturing the interesting in the simple and showcasing true beauty.  All of his work reawakened my senses to the exceptional bounty of Seattle.  Alex made me fall in love again with the natural beauty Seattle has to offer.  Take a look at one of my favorite photos of dew drops on a plantlife...


It was an absolute pleasure speaking with such a young and accomplished artist.  Alex inspired the fire I needed to make a final decision on some new artsy project ideas I have toyed with mentally a few months back.  

I am reminded of my launch days and how launching really is a lifelong adventure.  We don't ever have to stop launching!  I love that!
