"Beauty beneath our feet"
     -John E. Wippler IV

Tonight was the opening of my husbands show! He spent the summer beta testing a foldscope for a class of his. He spent days upon days collecting tree bark, leaves, flowers etc,.  He built a dock that allowed him to set his phone up to the foldscope and take photos of what he was viewing. He then took those photos and painted them using watercolor. What I found most interesting about this study, is that he would take a simple green leaf but what we didn't realize is that underneath was a beautiful range of colors. Such as teal, pink, sienna, indigo brown, black, white...the list goes on and on.

Such beautiful things we never even knew were there. "Beauty beneath our feet." 

Here are some photos from his show! Enjoy.
